Arthur Russell, Get Around To It, 1973 - 1992

Classically trained cellist, student of Indian classical music, innovative disco producer and criminally overlooked artist Arthur Russell passed away with little success and nearly broke, despite a wealth of recorded material. All of which has been latterly discovered and documented highlighting the rich and varied creative output of the man. This is simply one of my favourites, taken from the 2004 comp: Calling Out of Context.
