Rod Meade Sperry talks to Audika Record’s Steve Knutson about musician Arthur Russell’s posthumous album Iowa Dream on the Lion’s Roar Podcast.
Arthur Russell was a genius musician, known for experimenting with genres from Indian classical to disco. He passed away at just 40 years old, leaving behind more than 1,000 tapes of unreleased music. Rod Meade Sperry asks Russell archivist Steve Knutson how these tapes fell into his possession, eventually becoming several posthumous albums, and about Russell’s life as a Buddhist. Includes clips and a full track of Russell music.
