Buddhist Art & Music in the 70s & 80s: Marcus Boon on Arthur Russell's Buddhism & Creative Process

Just came across this fantastic take on Arthur Russell's creative process in connection with Buddhism by Marcus Boon. Definitely worth a read.

In some ways, New York in the 1970s is starting to be very well charted territory, but the complicated web of connections between different scenes which is described in this book is still news, and Lawrence draws out these connections with the same loving detail he brought to his first book, Love Saves The Day: A History of American Dance Music Culture, 1970-1979.
