Elliott Smith’s ‘Either/Or’ getting expanded reissue

News / Preorders / January 5, 2017

Elliott Smith’s 1997 full length record, Either/Or, is getting an expanded reissue for its 20th anniversary. You can grab it on limited “Buttercream Splatter” vinyl, 1,000 copies, on an indie exclusive of yellow vinyl or on black. It’s a 2xLP set. Breaking our news hiatus as I feel that limited one will go quick.

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.

The records will start shipping out in March and April of this year.
