Love is Overtaking Me

April 19, 2009

Record Store Day was yesterday, and of the great things about Pure Pop is that they had copies of the Arthur Russell album released on Rough Trade last fall.  And Dale went and bought it.  AhHH, thank you!


Arthur Russell died of AIDS in the early 90s after being a brilliant genius for his whole life.  I’d mostly heard his disco and cello stuff, and this album collects his some of his country and pop stuff, Modern Lovers inspired.  He breaks hearts like no one else.
