One of his very best.
For anyone who has been waiting to see this Elliott Smith documentary in the UK and who missed the poorly publicised screenings in Brighton, Hackney and Manchester recently, it now seems the film is getting a wider release and nationwide dates have just been announced for May. They include eight at The ICA and elsewhere in London, plus Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Bradford, Leeds, York, Liverpool, Derby, Norwich, Cardiff and Brighton.

I was fiddling around on the piano, working out the chords to Elliott Smith’s “Happiness”, and as I cracked the chorus I suddenly realised that the guitar solo from the Carpenters’ “Goodbye To Love” could be played perfectly over the top of it.
Wow. Unexpected fit.
