i recently came across this myself. the word is that these are tracks and mixes that his family didn't want released. the tracks here that are also on "from a basement" are far superior mixes, more true to what smith was working on before he was killed. from what i've heard and read, his family wasn't involved in his life at all, so it's unnerving that they would hold back on releasing this material. these 17 tracks are an amazing reminder of what was taken from the music world. thankfully, someone has leaked these for all to hear. the instrumental tracks are haunting and the last track, a cover of cat stevens "trouble", is pure gold.
as far as my statement about smith being killed, read the official coroner's report for yrself and make up yr own mind. i think he was murdered.
Bill Hicks is the greatest bass player of all time. No need to discuss this any further.
for me, it said "Your musical preferences are: Complex, Instrumental, and Intelligent." mostly on point. i think i said i like instrumental music because i really thought any of the sample tracks with vocals were just plain awful...
but, when you read the details of each little attribute, it was so very far from the truth.
don't forget to check out Bad Brains March 5th at the State in St Pete!!!!
The National are also playing, they are one of the main bands on Sunday the 8th.
Lux will be missed. Not much else needs to be said.
