can someone recommend the best comp? preferably one with "this is how we walk on the moon" on it.
for that matter.
That would be pretty cool cos all his stuff so different.
on phillip glass's label... is the only comp to my knowledge with "this is how..." on it... it's also the best comp of his folkier stuff
I like the soul jazz compilation of the disco stuff like dinosaur l "go bang" and loose joints "is it all over my face" etc
I watched the Arthur Russell documentary the other day. Was interesting, although I'm not entirely convinced that the tag of 'genius' applies to him, as was often used throughout the film.
But as 50-pence says, the dinosaur l stuff sounded cool, whereas a lot of his cello stuff sounded really dissonant (and not always in a good way)
Definitely Genius. Especially his "Cello stuff"!
Not saying he wasn't a genius, was just saying I'm not convinced that he was.
it's really good although it mainly focuses on his Disco stuff.
that features his more folky stuff is worth its weight in gold
