    Essential release and must have by everyone that is remotely involved, interested or curious about dance music at its best. Arthur was and still is so talented and brilliant. RIP sweet man, your music is so beautiful and perfect. I challenge anyone not to be moved by "In The Light Of The Miracle". Best listen for me was full on in the boom boom room at the Ministry of Sound, Amnesia at 4am with sun rising in Ibiza on a very warm Wednesday morning in late spring, and a party in SOMA, San Francisco, where the DJ suddenly had an epiphany and plaid the track to a very appreciative diverse crowd that can only be found in SF.

      So danceable and yet emotional, intensely personal but capable of transmitting its energy to any open-minded listener. Arthur Russell's genius lies in his ability to bridge any gap (just listen to "Is It All Over My face" and you'll see all barriers between white, experimental music and black, party music collapse).

      As usual, this Soul Jazz compilation can boast extensive and useful liner notes, cover artwork of the original 12" or LP releases, and a good choice that spans the various sides of Russell's creativity.
