Arthur Russell - World of Echo (1986)

An amazing unique album by the late Athur Russell that I've really warmed up to lately. The majority of the songs are relatively bare, but full of emotion. The first time I listed to this I was really struck by Russell's fragile effected vocals and sporadic bursts of cello, but I began to love it's haunted atmosphere. His songs aren't like anything I've heard before. Stands in hard contrast to Arthur Russells' past catalogue of work of bizarre disco-influenced dance music. Some highlights: "Place I Know / Kid Like You", "Answers Me", "Wax The Van", "Soon To Be".
