ELLIOTT SMITH'S CLASSIC ALBUM 'EITHER/OR' GETS "EXPANDED EDITION" FOR 20TH ANNIVERSARY

January 04, 2017

To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Elliott Smith’s best-selling and greatly beloved album, Either/Or, Kill Rock Stars have announced Either/Or: Expanded Edition, out March 10, 2017 on 2LP, 2CD and digital. The New York Times spoke with Larry Crane, owner of Jackpot! Studios and archivist of the Estate of Elliott Smith, and shared the unreleased track “I Figured You Out.” Listen to the song and read the story here.

 

“I Figured You Out” was recorded as a demo for Mary Lou Lord, who later recorded a version (produced, performed, recorded, and mixed by Elliott Smith) for her Martian Saints EP (KRS-264). Neil Gust plays doubled drums. “I Figured You Out” was recorded by Elliott Smith at Heatmiser House in 1995. The track was mixed by Larry Crane in May 2010, at Jackpot! Recording Studio.

 

Either/Or: Expanded Edition features the original tracks carefully remastered from original tapes under the supervision of Larry Crane.  The second disc features five live multi-track recordings from the Yo Yo A Go Go Festival in Olympia WA in 1997, as well as three previously unreleased studio recordings and one b-side gem.  The double LP is packaged in a gatefold jacket that includes an insert of the original liner notes, a postcard of the original master tapes, and several never-before seen photos.  This gorgeous collection is an essential listen for longtime fans and newcomers alike.

Listen: Alternate Take on Elliott Smith's Alameda
Read the article by Jenn Pelly at Pitchfork.

August 6 would have been Elliott Smith's 43rd birthday, and to mark the occassion, his former label Kill Rock Stars is sharing a series of rare, unreleased tracks. It starts with a version of "Alameda", recorded during the same sessions that yielded the album version featured on Smith's essential 1997 release Either/Or. This version contains alternate lyrics during the chorus. Kill Rock Stars will also reissue Either/Or and Smith's self-titled 1995 album on 180-gram vinyl this month, in honor of Smith's birthday.

On August 6, Kill Rock Stars will sell its 2010 Smith compilation An Introduction to... for $4.99 all day. You'll also receive "a present" from the label if you sign up for their mailing list that day.

Throughout August, Smith's entire Kill Rock Stars output will be available digitally for $49. And for the duration of 2012, any Kill Rock Stars mailorder purchase will be accompanied by a 10% off coupon for their Smith offerings.
