arthur russell - Love Is Overtaking Me

*Finally available again - an incredible collection of previously unreleased recordings from Arthur Russell* Offering an alternate view of Arthur Russell's career, Love Is Overtaking Me brings together the massively influential artists folk and country compositions, recorded between his formative days in the '70s and his untimely death in 1992. The first thing to strike you about album opener 'Close My Eyes' is how much Russell sounds like Townes Van Zandt - with a hint of James Taylor in his voice. He fits into the country sound wonderfully, coming across as effortlessly authentic without conforming too heavily to genre expectations. For instance, 'Goodbye Old Paint' features strings, woodwind and what sounds like droning sitar, bringing a welcome outsider angle to classic Americana song formats. Some of the later recordings venture more pronouncedly into edgier avant-pop (as on the uptempo new-wave/disco of 'Your Motion Says'), but regardless of the era, Russell seems able to embed something fresh and unmistakably his own within conventional songwriting tropes. A perfect introduction to Arthur Russell's oeuvre for uninitiated listener, as a collection of songs Love Is Overtaking Me is pretty hard to find fault with and very different to pretty much everything else in the known Arthur Russell canon. A real find - and a massive recommendation.
