Weezer Fanclub Cover Compilation Vol. 1 is a compilation album featuring covers from members of the Weezer Fan Club. It was compiled by fan club founders, Mykel & Carli, and released in 1996.

Overview

Submission guidelines for the compilation, featured on page 14 of Weezine Issue #5

A request for covers of Weezer songs was placed in the Winter 1996 edition of Weezine, with the announcement that a number of submissions would be chosen for inclusion in a "Weezer cover compilation tape".[1] Approximately 60-70 submissions[2] were sent in via cassette tape and sorted through by Mykel and Carli Allan, publishers of Weezine and heads of the fan club. After choosing 18 final tracks, the submitted cassettes were mastered by Pat Wilson, and around 250 copies were produced by a local Portland tape duplication service.[2] The compilation was made available for purchase for $5 via mail order in the Summer 1996 edition of Weezine. The album sold out within 6 months.[2]

Two of the selected covers were performed by members of the band Ozma; Daniel Brummel and Jose Galvez. Brummel performed "You Gave Your Love to Me Softly" under the pseudonym "Chee Chee Boyz" (leaving a note on his credit, stating "I can't hit Rivers's high notes"), while Galvez performed "The World Has Turned and Left Me Here" under the abbreviated name "J.Galvez".

A second compilation was planned, and new submissions were requested in the May 1999 edition of Weezine. However, likely due to the untimely death of Mykel and Carli Allan and slow decay of the fan club, the album would not be released.[3][4]
