about

“In outer space you can’t take your drums- you take your mind”
-Arthur Russell 1987

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 in North America on January 11, 2005, and via Rough Trade in Europe on January 10th. 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.
