“I read a review that said that the material from disc one was recorded from Elliott Smith and disc two was Either/Or. It said a song was acoustic that had drums on it. It said that he was a drug addict at the time, which is definitely not true. I mean, I was fucking there. I can tell you that in 1996 and ’97, I was not dealing with an addled drug addict. I was dealing with a person who, at the most, would go out and have some beers with me. The review made so many assumptions that it was just a bummer to read.
To the point where the writer said that the major label let him have a steady stream of drugs . Oh my God.”
