Featured article: Golden Nuggets


Karlscorner-20020618-h.jpg

Golden Nuggets is an unreleased compilation of Weezer songs arranged in 2001 by Karl Koch.

The compilation was to contain 17 tracks spanning 1993 to 2001, including seven then-unreleased songs. All of these recordings would eventually see release over the next decade, with "Getting Up and Leaving" and the "Longtime Sunshine" coda mix not appearing until 2011. Other songs came out as Green Album b-sides or on future retrospectives like Rivers Cuomo's Alone albums and the deluxe reissues of The Blue Album and Pinkerton.

Koch described the record on Weezerpedia as "totally under wraps at the time of its assembly. The album was decided against and never went into production, but the artwork, liner notes and tracklisting were completed... As time went on and the band accrued an ever expanding library of unreleased tracks and rarities, Golden Nuggets became an anachronism, although several of the rarities chosen for it have still not been released to the public or bootlegged as of 2016."
