released on vinyl for the 1st time ever, arthur russell's 1994 masterpiece of striking ambient songcraft & experimental cello virtuosity freely flowing around rich percussive grooves.

While it is a collection of tracks in various stages of completion, often sparse & direct, it is perhaps the most sonically coherent album ever released of Russell’s material. tracks like 'another thought', 'home away from home' & 'a little lost' show the humbling effect his naked, earnest voice has, singing those oddly compelling melodies over music that redefines the limitations of the cello as an instrument. these stripped back, home recorded experiments punctuate right to the soul in a way songwriters scarcely achieve. the more progressive numbers - 'this is how we walk on the moon', 'in the light of the miracle' - feature regular collaborators peter zummo on trombone & percussionist mustafa ahmed. together they create an expansive sound, somewhere between minimalism, outsider house & world music all at once. an essential collection.
