Arthur Russell Pop Your Funk

Taken from the excellent The World of Arthur Russell album that also came out on Soul Jazz, this track brings together a stunning disco beat, sparse organ chords, single notes played on a cello and traffic noises recorded from outside the studio. This was done in 1981 by a man who just wanted to do "Buddhist bubble-gum music"! In other words: essential listening.
