2022 reissue on Rough Trade Records.

Love Is Overtaking Me, originally released in 2008, comprises 21 demos and home recordings of unreleased pop, folk and country songs from Arthur’s vast catalogue. While much critical and popular affection for Russell’s music has come about well after his untimely death from AIDS in 1992, many fellow artists believed in his genius and were drawn to collaborate with him during his lifetime.

The legendary producer John Hammond (Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen) recorded Russell on several occasions; a number of these recordings can be heard on Love Is Overtaking Me. Alongside songs recorded with various incarnations of The Flying Hearts, a group formed by Russell with Ernie Brooks, several other Russell projects are represented on Love Is Overtaking Me, including The Sailboats, Turbo Sporty and Bright & Early.
