"Russell's most personal and radical statement consists simply of his folksy tenor, cello, and scant electronic microtones-- all lathered with echo, distortion, and reverb."

Arthur Russell

World of Echo

£44.99

Sad, euphoric, beautiful and still sounding like nothing else.

Remastered from Arthur’s pristine original 1/4″ sequenced masters, “World Of Echo” sounds like nothing you have heard or will ever hear. 18 tracks are featured including drumless versions of his Disco classics “Let’s Go Swimming”, “Tree House” and “Wax The Van” along with four previously unreleased tracks from “Sketches From World Of Echo”.

Originally released on LP in 1986, “World Of Echo” is a deeply intimate and meditative work of awe-inspiring grace and remains a timeless work of sublime beauty. Arthur’s aim was to achieve what he calls “the most vivid rhythmic reality”, with just cello, voice, and echoes. Arthur achieved all of this and more on one of the most amazing albums you will ever hear.

“In outer space you can’t take your drums- you take your mind”
