A Thanksgiving Challenge

Talk about Elliott here, in the most broadest of terms. For any ES talk that doesn't fit anywhere else.

A Thanksgiving Challenge

Postby eddiebrock » Sat Nov 19, 2016 5:28 pm

Full disclaimer, i have not heard nor do I have any way to get any of these. This excludes all the side stuff and anything recorded before '93. I probably also missed a few items that even I already know about just because I don't prefer to make these lists and quickly threw this together, but I wanted to post this because I saw a lot of people commenting that "we already have most of what Elliott did" which is categorically not true. There is a ton of stuff by the man still out there, much of it in the hands of the estate but undoubtedly much more sitting in the hands of others, likely in dusty attics or closets. Please note these are all STUDIO recordings; that includes the songs that you probably heard below that might have been performed live but their inclusion on the list below indicates there is also a studio recording out there.

Yer Blues

This is just a taste and also an encouragement for those that have it to feel free to come forward and share.

As far as my bold challenge, I will offer to donate $50 to Outside In for every song off this list that someone comes forward with before Thanksgiving. To show I'm serious about this, I have already gone ahead and donated $100 already (message me for the proof) in faith that someone will be touched enough to "surface" two songs.
I realize this could really destroy my pocket if some generous soul comes forward, but it's all for a good cause and I can take the hit. Furthermore, my employer will match my donations up to $250.

So let's see what happens!

Proof of my donation:
