Elissa's Music

My friend Page sent me a ton of scanned pictures, a few of Elissa and mostly of old Lenny era show flyers, news clippings, handwritten lyrics and set lists, and a picture that Elissa had colored which made me laugh out loud. I uploaded everything to a gallery that you can find here. Image thumbnails are set to open into full size - just keep clicking on the individual pictures and they'll open to full size for you. I'm planning a memorial post for her upcoming birthday, but decided that I'd go ahead and do this much now while I had the opportunity.

It's funny too, because I've been thinking a lot about her lately and listening to the music again while I'm doing different things at home.

I've re-uploaded all of the music as well, in case anyone is missing it:

  1. Take Me

  3. Feed The Ghost
  4. Driving In My Car
  5. Enemy
  6. Purple Thoughts
  7. In This Land

  9. Little Girl Blue
  10. Banquet
  11. This Is Just A Love Song*
  12. Dangerous Relationship*
