'Love Is Overtaking Me' comprises 21 demos and home recordings of unreleased pop, folk and country songs from Arthur Russell's vast catalogue. Compiled from over eight hours of material, and three years in the making, this collection reaches back further to Russell’s first compositions from the early '70s and spans forward to his very last recordings, made at home in 1991.  A number of the songs feature prominently in the acclaimed film Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell.
