A brand new Elliott Smith performance has just been made public for the first time.
The footage which was taken from a VHS copy of Smith playing a full set at Japan festival Fuji Rock. The setlist includes A message from the uploader stated: “When I was working on the documentary ‘Heaven Adores You’ many friends and fans were gracious enough to share their keepsakes with us – memories, videos, pictures and etc. During the production, one of Elliott’s close friends and collaborators gave us an old VHS tape that had a performance that they had acquired and kept for a keepsake. I had it transferred from VHS tape and digitized for potential inclusion in the Heaven Adores You project, but it never made the final cut. With the blessing of the tape owner I am uploading the full performance here. This seems to be previously unreleased footage. I hope you enjoy it.”
