Roman Candle / From a Basement on the Hill
(Kill Rock Stars)
US: 6 Apr 2010
The female-run indie label Kill Rock Stars have recently added Elliott Smith to their extensive catalog. KRS plans to re-issue Smith’s first solo album, Roman Candle, on vinyl for the first time in the U.S. on 6 April 2010. The album was remastered by Smith’s archivist and editor of Tape Op Magazine, Larry Crane. The label also plans to re-release Smith’s posthumous From a Basement on the Hill, making KRS the official haven for Smith’s independent releases.
In celebration of the re-releases KRS has unleashed a previously unreleased Elliott Smith tune “Cecilia/Amanda.” The song was recorded by Crane in 1997 at Jackpot! Recording Studio. You can download “Cecilia/Amanda” at the KRS official site.
