Elliott Smith: Basement II

October 18 2005 04:21 PM ET (Permalink) (Comment)

It's weird. I'll admit that I wasn't much of an Elliott Smith fan during his lifetime, and I'm still reluctant to dive through his back catalog. I picked up From a Basement on a Hill last year, having heard "Coast to Coast" and "Pretty (Ugly Before)", and ended up liking about half of it. Yesterday, I heard the recently leaked set of outtakes (affectionately dubbed "From a Basement on a Hill II" by fans), and was stunned by this track in particular:

Elliott Smith - Amanda Cecilia (zipped mp3)

It's amazing that he didn't think this track was worth including on an album.
