Possible Pinkerton Deluxe Tracklist From Japan

Update 9/27: The official tracklist has been confirmed and is somewhat different from the below list. View the official tracklist here.

Yesterday I posted that a poster on a Weezer message board found a possible tracklist for Death to False Metal (hitting stores November 2), a compilation of unreleased Weezer material on a Japanese Web site.

Last month, Weezer.com reported that accompanying Pinkerton Deluxe (though probably not released on 11/2) would be the third installment of Rivers’ Alone series, titled the Pinkerton Years. If that’s true, I’m guessing tracks 37-62 are Alone 3.

This is a very impressive collection of songs here. While it doesn’t look like there will be a full-band Superfriend or Blast Off!, this is probably all the mixed-down, final material available from the Pinkerton sessions, including the long-awaited, but never heard, Getting Up and Leaving.

As for the material on Alone 3, combined with the first two editions, we’ll finally have everything Rivers recorded for Songs from the Black Hole, his unfinished Space Rock Opera concept, plus what looks to be a number of other gems.

I know we just got a new Weezer album yesterday, but between Death to False Metal and Pinkerton Deluxe, I’m really looking forward to November 2.

  1. I’m speechless.

    Between Death to False Metal, Pink Deluxe and Alone III, that’s quite a plethora of new songs.

    One complaint- they couldn’t find or use the Blast Off recorded in 9/95 or the Superfriend they were doing as seen on Video Capture Device?

    Maybe they switched over to the new site and deleted the recording history so fans wouldn’t call them out for what isn’t on there.

  2. Hey – thanks for the reference yesterday re. the False Metal tracklist 🙂

    Hope this is of help to anyone reading this – I read katakane, and have cleaned some of this up. The split between disc 1 and disc 2 is tentative, but I’m hearing its about right.

  3. I read ‘katakana’ was meant to be said there… dunno where that came from. Sorry about the formatting errors, forgotting to HTML that bizzatch up.

  4. Thanks for clearing that up! Was in a bit of a hurry when originally writing this post. Kinda disappointed we won’t get to hear El Sukorucho, though.

  5. Steve- thanks for the update. Looks like you were posting this just as I was typing up what I found out. November second’s going to be exciting, eh, Steve?

  6. I’m disappointed that the band-versions of “Superfriend” and “Blast Off!” aren’t going to be included.

    I hope that this changes before the release date. A guy can still hope, right? Mr. Cuomo is reading this for suggestions…right?

  7. Mike- after seeing VCD and reading the recording history, it would be great if Blast Off and Superfriend were included. But I’m guessing there’s a reason they’re not. I’m not saying it’s a good reason though.

    And I can only hope Rivers reads this. But probably not!
