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
