Elliott Smith: New Moon
Buy! - (Kill Rock Stars)
This 2-CD compilation collects various outtakes and demos from 1994-97, the early years of Elliott’s solo career, with nearly all of them being previously unreleased. These types of posthumous releases usually just dredge up subpar recordings that weren’t released before for good reason, but Smith was one special songwriter, and most of the songs here would’ve fit just fine on his official albums from that era. Far from being a cynical cash-in, New Moon is a welcome addition to Smith’s catalog. 4/25/2007 - Don Yates
