Love Is Overtaking Me by Arthur Russell on Rough Trade Records

Arthur Russell - Love Is Overtaking Me


  • £12.99

Compiled from over eight hours of material, Love Is Overtaking Me reaches back further to Russell’s first compositions from the early ‘70s, the most rare and, at the same time, arguably the most accessible part, comprising twenty-one demos and home recordings of unreleased pop, folk, and country songs selected by Audika’s Steve Knutson, Ernie Brooks (The Necessaries, The Modern Lovers), and Russell’s companion, Tom Lee.
