2018 Stereophile Magazine Record to Die For!

To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Elliott Smith’s best-selling and greatly beloved album, Either/Or, Kill Rock Stars proudly presents Either/Or: Expanded Edition. This album features the original tracks carefully remastered from original tapes under the supervision of Larry Crane, owner of Jackpot! Studios and archivist of the Estate of Elliott Smith. The second disc features five live multi-track recordings from the Yo Yo A Go Go Festival in Olympia WA in 1997, as well as three previously unreleased studio recordings and one b-side gem.

The double LP is packaged in a gatefold jacket that includes an insert of the original liner notes, a postcard of the original master tapes, and several never-before seen photos. This gorgeous collection is an essential listen for longtime fans and newcomers alike.

"Elliott Smith's third and final independently released full-length has always been the favorite." - Pitchfork

Singer-songwriter Elliott Smith crafted memorable, sharply drawn lyrics set against chord sequences of remarkable ingenuity and beauty, and performed with a whispery, decidedly fragile-sounding voice. His earliest recordings were basic in the extreme, made mostly in his own living room and in low-budget studios - as it is here, on his third album, made and released in 1997 and reissued in 2017 with live performances, alternate takes, and previously unreleased material. Among the last is 'I Figured You Out,' an acoustic-guitar-and-harmonium-driven song with an uncannily insightful lyric and a hook-laden melody: It alone is worth the price of admission... Smith went on to record two more albums during his lifetime. The more polished XO (1998) is also indispensable, but the raw, decidedly lo-fi Either/Or remains his most moving work - and, at times, his most harrowing.
