More Info

More than 40 years after Russell recorded several nearly finished songs, composer Peter Broderick worked diligently with Audika to complete them, and performed audio restoration and additional mixing. These 19 tracks of Russell’s most personal work, include collaborations with  Ernie Brooks, Rhys Chatham, Henry Flynt, Jon Gibson, Peter Gordon, Steven Hall, Jackson Mac Low, Larry Saltzman, and David Van Tieghem. Several tracks on "Iowa Dream" were originally recorded as demos, in two early examples of Russell’s repeated brushes with potential popular success—first in 1974, with Paul Nelson of Mercury Records, and then in 1975, with the legendary John Hammond of Columbia Records. For different reasons, neither session amounted to a record deal. Russell kept working nearly up until his death in 1992 from complications of HIV-AIDS.
