Since this community has been abandoned by one of its maintainers, I s'pose it's all mine now. I'd like to get it up and running again.

so... what's everyone listening to at the moment?

I love Elliott Smith's album "Unreleased: From a Basement on the Hill II" which leaked a few days ago.
Anyone else get it?
I like it more than "From a Basement on the Hill" because it has Elliott's vibe. I know his friends and family tried hard to put "From a basement on the hill" together but the music on "II" that were left alone are the best.

It's also nearing the date of his death. Any plans?

Hi everyone!! I just joined & I promise I'm not a twat.

I just ordered this album after some extensive internet trolling & an unbelievably good price:
Image hosted by Emitt Rhodes Self-titled

In 1970, and with little fanfare, ABC/Dunhill Records released a self-titled album by a young man named Emitt Rhodes. With more than a slight nod to the Beatles (particularly Paul McCartney), its twelve tracks are among the finest examples of pop-song form in history. More amazingly, the entire album ó every song ó was written, sung, performed, engineered and produced by Emitt himself, a feat he accomplished nearly simultaneously with McCartney. The album and Emitt had what seemed to be a promising future ahead, breaking into the Top 40 (peaking at a respectable #29) and spawning a single that nearly cracked the Top 40 as well. But, through a number of marketing and contractual flubs, Emitt Rhodes ó the man and the album ó faded into the shadows of rock-and-roll obscurity, along with his subsequent releases.

Billboard magazine called him "one of the finest artists on the music scene today" (4/3/71) and later referred to his debut as one of the "best albums of the decade" (11/23/96.) Alternative Press described it as "essential listening...a true pop gem..." (2/96) It's a shame that to your average person-on-the-street today, the name Emitt Rhodes doesn't mean much. But to many who bought that first album, it occupies a special place in their record collection; a pure pop masterpiece that endures countless listens.

If I find that you're for real and want to discuss music, you'll gladly be accepted. Otherwise, take your idiocy elsewhere, and get a life instead of bothering people on the Internet.
