Music Millennium

In 1986 Arthur Russell was diagnosed with HIV, that same year he released his career-defining masterpiece World of Echo, the first and only solo album issued during his lifetime. Arthur had found his voice and a fresh direction with a set of new, transformative material, unlike anything he or anyone else had previously released. His illness ensured that the artistic growth and sense of exploration encapsulated in World of Echo would be tragically curtailed. Within six short years he was gone. His final years were filled with a renewed commitment to creativity and unceasing live and recording work. Picture of Bunny Rabbit features nine previously unreleased performances from this era compiled from completed masters culled from two unique test pressings. A further four tracks were discovered in his tape archive. The bulk of the material was recorded with engineer Eric Liljestrand at Battery Sound Studios NYC and at Arthur's apartment studio in the East Village.
