I miss Elliott Smith
In 1998, Elliott Smith was in competition for an Oscar against songs sung by Celine Dion, Michael Bolton, Aaliyah, and Leann Rimes. All the other musicians, when it was their turn to show off the song, had elaborate set designs complete with background gospel choirs and fog machines… except Elliott Smith, who came out alone in a white suit and acoustic guitar. We miss you Elliott.
I recently stumbled over this great Elliott Smith website called Trash Treasury that that some great Elliott Smith bootlegs, cover songs, and rarities. Take a look and fill up your hard drive.
