Arthur Russell - Discography (1981-2009)









Here it is. Here's the motherload. Arthur Russell in all his primal glory. If you're not familiar with him then get there. This is, as far as I can find, his entire disco. Breath it in. I'd give recommendations but I think it's important to figure that out for yourself in this case. Enjoy!

"Charles Arthur Russell, Jr. (May 21, 1951 – April 4, 1992) was an American cellist, composer, singer, and disco artist. While he found the most success in dance music, Russell's career bridged New York's downtown, rock, and dance music scenes; his collaborators ranged from Philip Glass to David Byrne to Nicky Siano. Relatively unknown during his lifetime, a series of reissues and compilations have raised his profile in the 2000s." - Wikipedia.com

Hey, once Arthur's downloaded, how does one play Arthur? iTunes doesn't seem to recognise it...

Must I unzip the files? How do I do that?

Thanks!

i'd picked up on the 'disco' arthur,'kiss me again' must be the greatest song ever recorded (discuss) but never got to the singer/ songwriter albums . i just played 'calling out of context' (from your site)-so this is what it means to be in love,with people,with the planet,with animals and plants.wow! i'm overcome by the truth that is contained within this album. thank you for posting i will get the documentary and understand more of arthur. bye

Hey, would you be willing to re-upload Arthur Russell's discography? I've looked everywhere for it but can't seem to find it and the links on your post are now broken. I'd greatly appreciate it; I just found his music recently and can't get enough of it!

Unfortunately I can't due to copywrite issues, but its all available elsewhere
