Elliott Smith Rarities Comp from KRS

New Moon, a new Elliott Smith compilation of recordings made for Kill Rock Stars between 1995 and 1997, is due May 8, according to Billboard. His albums for KRS, Elliott Smith and Either/Or, are two of the best albums of the 90s.

Mediocre quality versions of many of these songs have been traded around by fans for years, and mp3s had been available at Elliott Smith: B-Sides & Other Songs, but the songs appearing on New Moon have recently been removed “by request.” Fair enough. It will be great to finally get to hear this material in the fidelity it deserves.

  1. i didn’t know the investigation into his death was still open. i thought it was ruled as a suicide. anyway, thanks for the info. looking forward to hearing this when it gets released.

  2. i didn’t know the case was still open, but i did know the police weren’t too sold on the suicide thing, since he was stabbed in the heart and had what appeared to be defense wounds on his hands.
