Whenever i wear out my Elliott Smith records, it only takes a matter of months (no more than 6) before i come to the realization that i have no business leaving his catalog alone. There have existed few better songwriters in history, and the deeper you dig, the better the songs seem to get. And live? this guy cant be topped. Interviews? such insight is invaluable!
Elliott Smith is truly an artist capable of unprecedented impression and poignance, and i appreciate his entire body of work (from singles to outtakes and bootlegs) about as much as i have ever enjoyed anything.
