Here is a little old school disco to celebrate the fact that it is FRIDAY!
Arthur Russell was quite a strange character by any standards. A classically trained cellist he lived in an ashram outside of San Francisco after leaving home and used his cello in an attempt to connect to the universe. Abandoning that pursuit after a few years he moved to New York in the early 70s to eventually become one of the few artists taking disco to another level. Oh and he was also almost a member of the Talking Heads.
This track sticks in my head relentlessly. It is a remix by the great Larry Levan.
Is it all over my face (Larry Levan Mix)
