Kill Rock Stars to release Elliott Smith rarities

Kill Rock Stars, the label that first launched Eliott Smith to prominence as a solo artist, will be opening the vaults this spring to issue a two-disc rarities set. New Moon, due out May 8, will feature songs recorded by Smith between 1995 and 1997. This would, we would assume, make them leftovers from the Elliott Smith and Either/Or sessions.
The album was mixed by Larry Crane, a longtime friend and collaborator of Smith's, who also serves as the archivist for his estate. A portion of all proceeds from the album will go to Outside In, a Portland, Oregon-based organization dedicated to helping homeless youth.
Here's the track list:

My favorite period of Elliott Smith - I'm excited to hear all this. His version of "Thirteen" is gorgeous.


Ditto to China. I've always thought the White Stripes kind of ripped off his version of "Thirteen" on "I'm Sure that We're Gonna be Friends."

Yes!!! Yes!!! Any Elliot Smith material is worth looking forward to. I agree with the above statements. His strongest material was on both XO and Either/Or. I am anxious to hear that early version of Miss Misery.
