The Rarest Arthur Russell Jams

Tim Sweeney's sweet podcast Beats in Space hosted Steve Knutson of Audika Records a few weeks ago. Audika is the label that put out Love is Overtaking Me. So you know he's got access to those rare and juicy Arthur Russell cuts that nobody else can find. Shit is insane, the first 15 minutes is completely unheard stuff. A remix of a high-school group, some bizarre experimental electronic stuff, an a few alternate takes of the dance stuff. The podcast ranks pretty high on the nerd-meter. The "unreleased" version of "Is It All Over My Face?" is played later in the show (this version was actually released on one of The Loft compilations, it's 12 minutes long). Also there is a short segment from a live radio recording of Arthur, but the sound quality makes it nearly unlistenable.
