Elliott Smith Greatest Hits

By jessica / August 12, 2010

Kill Rock Stars will release An Introduction to… Elliott Smith, a sort of greatest hits collection from the late singer. The songs come from all seven Smith albums, mostly from his independent releases, with just one track each from his DreamWorks albums XO and Figure 8. Says Kill Rock Stars: “We hope this will enable new generations to learn about Elliott’s music by providing a pathway for people to delve more deeply into his immensely satisfying catalog.” Check out the tracklist below. What’s missing? It was probably a rights thing, but this could definitely use more (or all) of XO.

01 “Ballad of Big Nothing” – from Either/Or
02 “Waltz #2″ – from XO
03 “Pictures of Me” -from Either/Or
04 “The Biggest Lie” – from Elliott Smith
