Elliot Smith New Moon

, but the last was the finishing up of the glorious From A Basement On A Hill, and this is simply a collection of seldom to never heard tunes from the period, so it’s hardly the rehash you usually see. Regardless, this set replaces crummy mp3s that I have of some of these, while putting them in perspective with their brethren. I wish he could have seen it through, but like all artists their true measurement of their comes after their lives. Gentle voice, familiar minor chord changes, brilliant writing, it’s here for all to hear; thanks Elliot. Close your eyes and enjoy the view of the new moon…
