I know Elliott chat pops up in 'Now Playing' from time to time, but it is somewhat disjointed and he is more than worthy of his own thread on here. Elliott fans, please make yourselves known!
For any Elliott fans who love his albums but haven't delved deeper, check out the Heatmiser albums, and go onto the Sweet Addy forum and download the 'Grand Mal' collection. There are 7 discs worth of material but discs 1-3 are essential. You will wonder why many of these songs never made it into album. Disc one is all the officially released non-album stuff such as B-sides, stand alone singles & soundtrack songs. Discs 2 & 3 are studio recordings of songs circa 1998-2003 which were never released. I would love to see these songs released one day. These songs were from the 'Figure 8' era, the scrapped album that was to come after it, and ones from the 'From a Basement on the Hill' sessions.
It encourages me that after the long wait since the superb 2007 collection 'New Moon' (previously unreleased 1994-1997 songs), the 'Heaven Adores You' film & soundtrack have been compiled, and also an expanded, remastered edition of Either/Or is to be released soon.
Hopefully in time we will see the Grand Mal songs officially released along with other songs of which studio recordings have been confirmed to exist, but haven't been leaked. We really are far from 'barrel scraping' with Elliott Smith posthumous releases as so many excellent songs exist that haven't been put out.
