The Download

It’s been two years since Elliott Smith’s apparent suicide, but Web-savvy fans are working hard to immortalize him with a free and seemingly endless supply of unreleased material. Elliott smithbsides.com has posted more than a hundred downloadable demos, rarities and out-of-print B-sides as well as tracks that didn’t make the posthumous release of From a Basement on the Hill, including noteworthy rendi-

tions of Cat Stevens’ “Trouble” and Big Star’s “Thirteen.” If you’re looking for live recordings, check out Junkbondtrader.net and the official Elliott Smith site, Sweetadeline.net. The latter offers an abundance of Beatles and Bob Dylan covers.
