Whether it’s hip hop, it’s face pointed reverentially to the old school, or house stealing disco riffs by the truck load, people are increasingly intrigued by back-in-the-day. And common to both the aforementioned scenes and much more is one person, Arthur Russell, a man some regard as the best songwriter of the 20th century. In 1981 Arthur set up Sleeping Bag Records with Will Socolov, the first release being the Dinosaur L album ‘24-24 Music’ as Dinosaur L. Arthur continued to be involved in production and mixing duties for the label, but parted company with Socolov in 1985, leaving behind a great legacy many songs now regarded as classics. ‘The Sleeping Bag Sessions’ contains 10 of them…
