The Black Sessions is a series of bootleg CD releases from the label Sangatte Records of Weezer's February 16, 1995 performance on the French radio show, C'est Lenoir.


The Black Sessions is a regular live-performance series on French radio. Like other artists, Weezer played the show live to air, and the recordings were later made into a very limited set of promo only CDs, for purposes of re-broadcast. These were not offered for sale and are very tough to find on the secondary/collector's market.

However, years later, several re-pressings were made and distributed, and can occasionally be found at online retailers or eBay. Lossless files taken from such a repressing were shared at albumsix, but it was soon discovered that the recordings were of lossy, mp3 quality. It has been theorized that these repressings were made from secondary sources, or even of bootleg origin.

Regardless of quality, many fans still seek out either an original disc, or digital files, of these sessions, as Blue-era soundboard recordings are scarce.
