Other releases

A 40 minute concert DVD of Smith playing at the July 17, 1999 Yo Yo A Go Go Festival, titled "Elliott Smith – Olympia, Washington", was announced to be released sometime during 2004 by HIQI Media, but has since been legally challenged by DreamWorks and as of 2006, is still in limbo.

Rob Schnapf and Joanna Bolme had made it clear that they wished and considered "From a Basement on the Hill" to be Smith's final record, and it was unknown whether the Smith family or DreamWorks planned to release any more posthumous albums.

"Elliott Smith: Live at Largo", a five-song CD featuring previously unreleased live recordings of Smith performing acoustically at Club Largo in Los Angeles is included with Autumn de Wilde's book "Elliott Smith", released on October 25, 2007.
