Arthur Russell's most extraordinary work, World of Echo is reissued in this remastered vinyl edition by Audika. 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. Originally released 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 incredible albums you will ever hear." Recorded New York 1985-86. A3 from the video by Phill Niblock. C4 recorded live 12/20/85 at Experimental Intermedia Foundation. Tracks D1–D4 from "Sketches for World of Echo" (previously unreleased).
