I think I'll start with that one since it's got Needle in the Hay on it and that's the song I'm familiar with. I'll try for the rest of his stuff though.

Completely agree with you. Albums like XO and Figure 8 have all that production and instrumental value, but Elliott wins with the s/t, It really is his perfect album. The only problem is if someone is turned off by his lo fi folksy early stuff chances are they won't give his later, more polished material a try. Very few ES albums sound alike.

33 1/3 series xo book coming in april, larry crane interview, josie cotton + more!

originally listed on amazon.com with a release date in mid march, amazon.com recently sent me an email about shipping the new 33 1/3 book about elliott's record, 'xo,' saying its planning to ship in early/mid april! continuum is publishing the book and it is written by matthew lemay who has been a staff writer for pitchfork media for many years. here is a description of the book:

"many albums could be cited to support the claim that great suffering yields great art. elliott smith’s xo should not be one of them. smith’s 1998 major label debut defies the “tortured singer-songwriter” stereotype, and takes up this defiance as a central theme. at a time when smith was being groomed for a particular (and particularly condescending) brand of stardom, he produced a record that eviscerated one of the central assumptions of singersongwriterdom: that pain is beautiful. xo insists that romanticizing personal tragedy can only leave you “deaf and dumb and done.” and it backs up this claim with some of the most artful and intelligent music of its day. matthew lemay writes an original take on a widely beloved album, steering clear of the sensationalist suicide angles that have dogged most analysis of elliott smith's extraordinary work."

if you would like to pick up the book, please check your local book store or you can order through amazon.com by going here: elliott smith's xo (33 1/3 series)

- thank you to john and jake for sending a link to a new and really great/informative interview from glorious noise with larry crane about archiving elliott's music. the article features the latest information about where larry is at in archiving elliott's music, what he is archving, what his thoughts what the future might hold and much more!. it also includes an idea of what larry has gone through some rare photos of what larry has working with along with a special overseer to make sure the job gets done! to read the interview, please head over to glorious noise here: elliott smith's archives: the glono interview with larry crane.

- matt from magnet magazine was kind enough to send in an email about a recent interview with josie cotton. josie is well know for her own music and the song, “johnny, are you queer?” she also owns satellite park where elliott recorded with david mcconnell while working on what would be 'from a basement on the hill' songs. the interview with josie brings up elliott and josie gives an idea of what elliott was doing, thinking and going through at the time while at her studio. to read the interview and the part about elliott, please follow this link to magnet magazine: q&a with josie cotton.

matt also mentioned that: "...corey dubrowa, who's written extensively on elliott and his work, is doing a list of overrated/underrated songs." so check out to see which elliott songs makes the list by going to the magnet's feature: the over/under: elliott smith. thanks matt!

- thanks to paul for sharing this: the professional skater dylan rieder chose "coast to coast" for his segment in alien workshop's "mind field."

- thanks to shaun for sending this link to a neat site about book inscriptions called the book incription project. he found a sweet one that is inscribed in autumn de wilde's elliott smith book. you can go here to check it out: through the eyes of of a girl. (4/1/09)
