Tracks 1-4 studio demo 11/92 [Cuomo/Bell/Sharp/Wilson]
The guy I got it from says, "These were demo versions of some of our favorite songs recorded in November of 1992 with Brian Bell on guitar. They were recorded before Ric Ocasek did anything to them. You can see how much of a metal band weezer was before Ric tamed the wild hair band solos to a more pop-type sound. A big highlight is the super rare "Undone" with the T.V. intro (Exerpts from various T.V. shows in place of the dialouge on the blue album)"
Tracks 5-9 The Kitchen Tape (venue demo) 5/92 [Cuomo/Cropper/Sharp/Wilson] The band gave this tape to clubs to get gigs in L.A. "It was recorded in May of 1992, two years before the blue album was released. It has Jason Cropper (now of Chopper One) on guitar in place of Brian Bell. It includes 3 now dead songs: "Paperface", "Let's Sew Our Pants Together" (one of Mykel and Carli's favorites), and "Theif, You've Taken All That Was Me" (AKA "Silent Dreams"),and two blue album favorites: "My Name Is Jonas" (written by Jason Cropper), and "Only in Dreams"."
Track 10 from DGC rarities compilation cd
Notes- the quality isn't super on the demos (a bit distorted and hissy), likely a result of crappy recording equipment used by the band, probably in addition to being high generation. could be worse, though.

Notes- this has the same Weezer songs as the above cdr. But these seem to be mixed a tad differently. Also on the disc are songs from Chopper One, which is the band lead by Jason Cropper (an original member of Weezer, and once frontman of 22 Jacks). The cdr was made from a 4th gen tape, so the quality isn't too good.

Notes: This was only Weezer's third show in like a couple years. It was a semi-secret (yet very sold-out) show and they played under the name Goat Punishment. They did four new songs
(only one of which, Hash Pipe, made the cut for the album). Some jackass did a few disco calls ("ooh ooh!!") in the first few songs, and some lame girls kept yelling "take off your pants!!" during the last few songs, but other than that the recording came out pretty good (especially during the new songs, because everybody shut up during them).

Notes: The second Weezer recording I made. I was right by the speaker-- I mean, practically hugging the thing. Doesn't sound too bad, though. Lots of pushing going on, and the stop button got knocked a couple times.. resulting in a few seconds missing from "Why Bother?" and "Say it Ain't So". I checked around on some Weezer message boards and lots of people were saying it was one of the best shows they'd ever seen.
Karl, Weezer's longtime roadie/5th member had this to say, "Anyway yesterday's show in San Diego was excellent, the band debuted another new song, provisionaly titled "Mad Cow". The crowd was wild, chanting along and spazzing out the whole time."
I might be stingy with this recording for a while, and only trade it for other good quality 2000 =W= shows or other rare stuff.

15. buddy holly
16. surf wax america

Notes- fine audience recording. Sounds like it's probably DAT sourced. I'm a little suspicious that it might have been in mp3 at one time, judging by the sound. The band had some technical difficulties at times, but this resulted in some extra jamming between songs. This show was the first time "your sister" was played live.

Notes: This recording is incomplete.. missing the last few songs. That's the way the master is.. I got this cdr from the guy who recorded the show (he put the backup battery pack on backwards, so it ran out early). But it has the 4 new songs that were played (plus No Other One which was seldom played in 2000).

Notes: nice sound (source: DM 48k DSM-6S>PA-6LC3>M1 *50ft FOB*) but a little too much crowd noise at times.
Karl's Corner wrap-up: "Austin, TX. A big outdoor festival show today at the Auditorium Shores dust bowl. Also appearing were such hip-hoppy acts as Everlast, the Kottonmouth Kings, and Cypress Hill. Weezer held their own against these aggro groups, pulling in at least as much crowd noise if not more! Also, the guys went to an autograph signing booth after their set. A huge line of over 1500 kids quickly lined up for autographs! The guys stayed and signed EVERY ONE, signing through the entirety of Everlast's and Cypress Hill's sets! after 3 hours of writing their names and greeting happy fans, the guys scoured the town in search of much needed food."

Notes: the 3rd weezer show i taped; the first in a big arena (first time i'd been in to big arena show in several years, in fact). this was the last show of their Yahoo!Outloud US tour. i was pretty far from the action.. way in the back. not much, if any, crowd talking or siging along picked up on the recording, but as with most of my masters, the drums and bass are a little distorted. The first couple seconds of the slow Buddy Holly intro are missing from when i flipped the tape. The remixes at the end of the disc are bullshit things i threw together for filler.. kinda kooky and fun, but nothing i should be too proud of.

This was the 4th of 5 shows he did in the Boston area in late 97 / early 98. The songs are great, but the recording is a little hissy, and there are a couple annoying fans in the crowd.

Notes- Rivers solo shows with a band. Mikey [later to join weezer] on bass, Zeph [from Stompbox] on drums (tracks 1-10), Pat Wilson [Weezer] drums on 1/14/98, and Fred [?] on keyboards. The songs are great, but the recordings are a little hissy. "A Thousand Years" is the only track I have from the 10/7/97 show.
This is what Karl had to say about these shows, "According to various conversations with Rivers, the new material showcased at these shows was both 'in consideration for new weezer songs' and , paradoxically also 'goofy country songs that are not weezer'. While the set lists of the first 2 shows are not available at present, I deduce from the last 3 shows that they were actually a mix of the two ideas. In playing "No One Else" alongside "Hot Tub", surely Rivers was not implying that "Hot Tub" was being considered for weezer! Rather, I conclude that he was simply playing what he felt like playing, some old weezer, some possibly new weezer, and some 'goofy stuff'... which was later named 'Homie', and in the case of one song, was put on a soundtrack CD ("American Girls"). The 5th show, however, was a bit different. As I've learned, the new songs played there, with Pat on drums, were definately under consideration for weezer, and remained so until sometime in the summer of '98, when rehersals started getting a bit confusing and odd, and songs started flying out of the window, never to return to the fold."
