Arthur Russell’s Loose Joints singles to be reissued for Record Store Day 2016
It looks like Record Day may actually have some redeeming features.
Fans of Arthur Russell’s cult disco offshoot, Loose Joints, will no doubt be over the moon to learn that a triple-vinyl release is in place for the now contentious annual event, which this year takes place on Saturday April 16.
Pop Your Funk: The Complete Singles Collection will be released via NYC’s West End Records – who last year put out an unheard version of ‘Is It All Over My Face?’ – and will feature different versions of the group’s three singles: ‘Is It All Over My Face’- including Larry Levan‘s storied offering – ‘Pop Your Funk’ and ‘Tell You Today’.
A new posthumous Arthur Russell album, Corn, was released in June last year. (via RA)
