Editorial Reviews

Product Description

During his lifetime, the classically trained composer, cellist and disco artist Arthur Russell studied and performed with a wide variety of musicians and artists such as Ali Akbar Khan, Allen Ginsberg, John Hammond, David Byrne, Rhys Chatham, Jon Gibson, Peter Gordon, Jerry Harrison, Garret List, Frank Pagano, Andy Paley, Leni Pickett, and Peter Zummo. As a solo act in the 1980’s, Arthur Russell produced successes such as “In the Light of the Miracle” and the album “World of Echo” which incorporated many of his ideas for pop, dance and classical music for both solo voice and cello format. When Arthur Russell died in 1992 at the age of 40, the Village Voice wrote: "his songs were so personal that it seems as though he simply vanished into his music." The re-release of “Another Thought” by Orange Mountain Music is a celebration of this collection of Arthur Russell songs and tribute to a great musical innovator.

Review

"Another Thought" are solos for voice and cello that tuck a world of influences into puckish, resolutely optimistic songs. -- NY Times, November 26, 1994

Format: Audio CD
Originally released in 1994 on Point Music, Another Thought went out of print like so many other albums before a renewed interest in the work of Arthur Russell made the prospect of a re-release more likely. Other than being remastered and some minor liner note changes, the album has been unchanged, and yet like so much of Russell's work, it still manages to sound fresh twelve years later (and probably roughly fifteen years since it was actually created). Another Thought was actually the first posthumous release from Russell, and despite all the great work that has followed on the Audika label, it's great to have it back in print.

Sure, there are tracks on the release that have been featured in different forms on newer releases (most notably "Lucky Cloud" from World Of Echo and "Keeping Up" from Calling Out Of Context), but Russell himself notoriously reworked his own tracks over and over, seemingly rarely actually finishing a track in his own perfectionist way, while oftentimes leaving several and uniquely outstanding versions of the same track on tape.

In many ways, Another Thought is the most pop-oriented release in the entire Russell catalogue so far. The first half of the release finds tracks structured in very normal ways, with some of his more mainstream sounding instrumentation. "A Little Lost" finds him weaving his usual cello bowing with some nice acoustic guitar and line after line of catchy vocal melodies. The aforementioned "Lucky Cloud" finds him plucking out more rhythmic cello work, but again his vocals dip and climb and veer all over, keeping one step ahead over the course of the two minute piece.

Elsewhere, the six-minute "Keeping Up" is not only one of my favorite songs by Russell, but possibly within my top 20 favorite songs ever.

With his John Martyn-like voice, Arthur Russell takes the listener on a journey to places varied and always interesting. Most of these songs are voice and cello, but percussion sometimes enters the soundscape and two songs sound like Talking Heads, circa "Remain in Light." This is not music for casual listening. It is however very beautiful and I have never heard anything else quite like it. Enjoy!

I can't wait to read the book on Arthur Russell that I think will be out soon. This guy was a pure genius, experimenting with different genres and bringing the NYC downtown together. Whether in pop, disco, rock or pure weirdness, Arthur Russell created brilliant music that will stand the test of time. Apparently he walked around New York at night listening to his demos and I dare you to do the same and listen to "I'm losing my taste for the nightlife" from this album without shedding a tear. A very personal and beautiful album.

This collection has the most unusual, and in my opinion, the most enduring Arthur Russell recordings. I don't love all of it, but the great songs are stunning. Keeping Up is a highlight.
