Nice to see this one come around for a vinyl reissue. Dinosaur L is one of the many pseudonyms that the late, great Arthur Russell elected to use. 24-24 Music is his best known statement under that name, containing legit-NY-disco-hits like ‘Go Bang!’ and ‘You’re Gonna Be Clean On Your Bean’. Join the avant-tinged disco party! Double LP.

Dinosaur L was one of Arthur Russell's many collaborative projects from the late seventies, bringing together a variety of pop and soul musicians to record an album like no other. The songs, which spiral through several adventurous hook phrases, are mostly improvised over dance rhythms that change at 24-bar intervals, hence the album's title. It is a free-form approach that produced a raw yet listenable record that sounds as surprisingly good through a pair of headphones as it does on the dance floor.
