A wild combination of cross-genre Arthur Russell favorites selected by In Sheep’s Clothing.
Arthur Russell’s exceptionally distinctive musical perspective mesmerized many. From the start of his career in late ‘60’s San Francisco he was a sought after collaborator, and early on made a fateful connection with poet Allen Ginsberg. Russell, while studying Western composition and Indian classical music, played his cello during Ginsberg’s readings. As he evolved, Russell invented new musical structures and obsessively shaped them into new forms; securing an endpoint for these experiments seemed virtually irrelevant to him.
Surprisingly, Russell was obsessed with producing pop hits in an array of genres. It was a curious paradox, and though he was just chasing his muse it was hard for many to understand this at the time. Tragically, he never got to see this dream fully realized.
