15.jpg (me and Elliott rolling in Jackpot!'s original MCI JH-16, Feb. 1997) As most readers of Tape Op may have picked up on by now, I have been involved in the archiving and cataloging of the music of my late friend, Elliott Smith. Here's an interview I just did about this if you are curious. I also was interviewed for one of those little 33 1/3 books about Elliott's XO album. I was allowed to fact check and contribute to this book and I feel it's one of the better things to come out about my friend. Buy it here. Author Matt LeMay will also be doing a book tour for this. See him in Portland at Reading Frenzy on May 21st, 7PM.

 

Tape Op is a free magazine exclusively devoted to
the art of record making.
