Description

The songs selected for Calling Out of Context were recorded by Russell at his home and various studios between 1973 and 1992. Some of the songs, including "That's Us/Wild Combination", were meticulously reworked and rerecorded dozens of times by Russell, up until his death in 1992. Calling Out of Context contains many previously unreleased tracks, including several songs from Russell's scrapped Corn album, so it is very special indeed!

In addition to singing and songwriting, Russell played many of the instruments on the album, including guitar, cello, percussion, vocals and keyboard to name a few. Many of the tracks feature percussion & drum programming from Mustafa Khaliq Ahmed, as well as synthesizers & trombone playing by Peter Zummo. Both Ahmed and Zummo were longtime collaborators with Russell. Noted vocalist Jennifer Warnes contributed singing to "That's Us/Wild Combination". Steven Hall contributed electronic drums to the record.

This was the first album released by Audika Record of Russel's work. The compilation producers were Melissa Jones, Steve Knutson, and Russell's longtime partner Tom "Sisu" Lee.
