|Uncovered Elliott Smith demos includes Beatles track|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Sunday, 02/15/09 2:33 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Rawkblog has posted an album's worth of leaked, unreleased demo tracks from the late Elliott Smith's album, From a Basement on the Hill.
One of the tracks in the demos is a cover of the Beatles' 1964 song, "I'll Be Back." At the end the demo, Smith mentions the Beatles' names, as if they were talking the studio. This track is not on the released Elliott Smith album, as are several other tracks in the demos, including a beautiful rendition of the Cat Stevens song, "Trouble".
The tracks have the gritty and raw sound typcial of demo tracks, but for the most part, don't sound unfinished, either. The tracks are currently available in a zipfile on the Rawkblog site, and the Beatles track is available as a separate MP3 download.
There has reportedly been no comment on the leak of tracks from Elliot Smith's people.
Smith rose to mainstream prominence when his song "Miss Misery", included in the soundtrack for the film Good Will Hunting, was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Original Song category in 1997.
