Arthur Russell

I've been digging through the maze of material that is the discography of the late Arthur Russell. If you're looking for a place to start I recommend the posthumous collection Love Is Overtaking Me which is a mainly acoustic compilation featuring Russell on his main forte, the cello. However this eclectic artist had dabbled in the 80s with dance music and contributed a lot with his project Dinosaur L to the post-disco movement in New York. Russell died a slow and tragic death from AIDS in 1992, but he left behind a plethora of music that touched so many different genres. To me, Russell is one of the more interesting and underrated musicians of our time.
