Listen To Previously Unreleased Elliott Smith Song From 'Either/Or' Reissue


Elliott Smith’s breakout 1998 release, Either/Or, is being reissued today by Portland-based record label Kill Rock Stars (you can order it here). The new 2-disc 20th anniversary edition of the album features remastered audio by Jackpot! Studios owner Larry Crane, a friend of the late singer who is now the Smith estate’s archivist.
