Ween Boognish Rising Thanksgiving 2014 Sampler Tracklist:
The fine folks behind upcoming Ween documentary Boognish Rising have shared a free sampler of Ween rarities, B-sides, oddities, and demos from their first four albums. You can download the compilation in AIFF format via Dropbox or FLAC Torrent files via Browntracker.
The full-length record is a weird one, with hissy demos and bootlegs galore. The overall audio quality isn't great, but the alternate versions provide interesting insight into Ween's early process. Aside from hearing the stripped-down versions of familiar songs, the best parts of the record are the covers. Dean and Gene show off their musicianship with strange and awesome renditions of Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight," The Beatles' "I'm So Tired," and Ozzy Osbourne's "No More Tears."

Hello Ween fans,
Today's your lucky day... it's time for the Boognish Rising Thanksgiving 2014 Sampler CD! We have a full length CD made up of demos and b-sides from their first 4 records. All the tapes were transferred here at Boognish Rising HQ so even if there's a couple songs you've heard someplace else... these versions sound a good deal better. A lot better in fact thanks to JWB who was kind enough to lightly remaster everything and make the CD flow nicely. He also threw in some pretty artwork that's available in the dropbox folder.
Download the .aiff files from my dropbox link here which should drag easily iTunes with the correct titles and sequence. It will also be available in FLAC format for download at Browntracker.net. Huge thanks to the generous Mike Miller who supplied the tape most of the songs came off of.
Last but not least thank you to Gene & Dean who both kindly gave their permission and corrected my track titles for this holiday treat. Tracks transferred and compiled by ChrisB.
