Synopsis

Album Description
"This was a guy who could sit down with a cello and sing with it in a way that no one on this Earth has ever done before, or will do so again." - PHILLIP GLASS David Stubbs, Melody Maker, April 1987 "World Of Echo" is an orbit of resonance, a giant, subterranean repository of Dub. Product Description 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".

(5 out of 5 stars)

"It sounds kind of like nick drake if he had played cello instead of guitar. That's about the best thing I can say and if that means anything to you then buy this record."
