Not much needs to be said when it comes to Elliott. Many artists pass away before we’re ready for them to go, most begin to fade out and become less relevant by the day. Elliott’s music is timeless and I will continue to play his music almost daily until I’m old and grey. Get this yellow 7″ of a few of his last songs put out before the end.

The Details

"Pretty (Ugly Before)" b/w "A Distorted Reality Is Now A Necessity To Be Free" holds the distinction of being the last recording by Elliott Smith to be released while he was still alive. Originally released as a single in August 2003, the songs were a part of the recording sessions that would ultimately yield the acclaimed posthumous album From A Basement On The Hill. The two songs serve as a powerful reminder of why Smith became the voice for a dejected generation. Limited to 1000 copies on opaque yellow, this is the first time the 7" has been available on colored vinyl.
