Geezer is an unofficial CD released by the label "Kiwi Records" in the year 1995.

History

"Geezer" is generally considered to be the very first physical Weezer bootleg ever released, being highlighted on the band's Facebook page on December 4, 2013.

In any event, TODAY'S headlining show at the Sting was illicitly recorded and later turned up on the spring 1995 unauthorized bootleg CD "Geezer", on the Kiwi Records "label". The shows setlist (CD tracklisting): 'intro', my name is jonas, no one else, the world has turned, buddy holly, in the garage, say it aint so, jamie, 'get to my heart' (erroneous title of the eventual Pinkerton track "Getchoo", which the band had introduced to their set around this time), only in dreams, undone, surf wax america. This was first ever weezer show to get bootlegged on CD - but it wouldn't be the last - also pictured here are #2, "American Holiday", and #3 "Rock Candy", both from later in 1995.

The audio is taken from Weezer's December 4, 1994 show at New Britain, CT, containing primarily Blue songs, as well as an early, higher tempo version of Getchoo, erroneously titled "Get To My Heart" on the tracklist. The CD was produced in Findon, South Australia by Kiwi Records and released at some point in 1995. Now, the CD is incredibly difficult to locate on the second-hand market and is considered a rare gem by some collectors.
