World of Echo
Out of print for over fifteen years, Arthur Russell's most extraordinary work, World of Echo is issued for the first time on CD by Audika Records. Newly 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. (this is the regular mass market single CD version; limited version with bonus DVD is out of print]. 2005.
