From a Basement on the Hill

From Academic Kids

Template:Album infobox From a Basement on the Hill (2004) is the name of the final album by the late Elliott Smith, which was released posthumously on 19 October, 2004. Originally intended to be a double album, Basement was incomplete at the time of Smith's death. Smith's family and friends (especially Rob Schnapf and Joanna Bolme) sorted through the more than 30 songs Smith had been working on and put together an album of 15 songs.

Because the album was originally intended to contain more than 30 songs, the possibility remains that a collection of unreleased material may someday be released.

The album was released on Anti- Records on October 19 2004 on Compact Disc and vinyl LP.
