"Though classically trained Arthur Russell's major contribution to the music world was in the dance genre. Despite the fact that his pioneering work in the late '70s and through the '80s was only quietly acknowledged at the time his long term impact on the genre is best described as formidable Russell's innovative; left field dance records were way ahead of what people were used to hearing at the time, in part due to his involvement New York's downtown avant-garde music scene. He scored several hits on the underground New York dance scene at clubs like the Paradise Garage (Larry Levan was a huge supporter). His biggest tunes, 'Go Bang!' and 'Is It All Over My Face?' were worldwide club hits and are still played today as classics. Sleeping Bag Records and Traffic Entertainment Group are proud to present his seminal work, 24-24 Music expanded to a deluxe double CD box set issue. In addition to the music found on the original issue of 24-24 Music this set includes rare 12" remixes and edits including the highly coveted 'Go Bang! (Walter Gibbons Mix) and the never before on CD 'You Can't Hold Me Down (Test Pressing Version)'. Both discs are housed inside beautiful full color sleeves that tuck into the extra durable box along with a 48 page booklet featuring unreleased photos by Janette Beckman and other Russell ephemera with words courtesy of Russell biographer Tim Lawrence. Sadly Arthur died in 1992, but his music lives on and his influence is still felt in the world of dance music and beyond. His tunes still sound great and are still moving many dancers around the world, so his spirit lives on."
