Arthur RussellArc Light Editions
Released: 12th July 2019
Much needed compilation reissued by Arc Light Editions. This collection was compiled by producer Don Christensen from the countless hours of unreleased tapes that Russell had recorded over the final decade of his life and consists mostly of the minimalist cello and voice format pop songs that are amongst Russell's sharpest emotional weapons. Arthur Russell's voice is one that can inspire rolling hyperbole, flowery prose describing the effect the man's fragile croon can have on the heart and it's exceptionally beautiful here. Mostly unadorned and swimming in oceans of space left by the elegiacally played cello, his words are left to land properly on Another Thought.
