Elliott Smith’s sophomore self-titled album has gotten a 25th anniversary deluxe reissue by Kill Rock Stars.
The deluxe reissue comes with a remaster of each of the album’s tracks from Smith family archivist Larry Crane, who pulled from different reels, cassettes, files, and DAT tapes so it could stay close to the original mix of Elliott Smith. On top of the original tracklist, the reissue also features the previously unreleased record Live at Umbra Penumbra, which was recorded at Portland, Oregon in September 17th, 1994.
“There are fan-traded MP3s out there of this show,” Crane explains. “But when people hear what I was able to extract from this original tape, they’ll be shocked.”
