New and Exclusive(ish) - WEEZER - Red Album Bonus Track - 'The Weight' (The Band cover)

In an unashamed act of commercialism and pandering to the populous, I'm trying to recreate my most-visited post ever - this one - by posting another brand new, unreleased, and previously un-blogged Weezer. It's a UK bonus track (unavailable even on the US deluxe edition, in all it's 16-track glory) - a cover of 'The Weight' by The Band. Both cover and original, right here:

mp3: [mp3 removed]
(from the UK version of The Red Album)

mp3: [mp3 removed]
(from Music from Big Pink)

The cover is a faithful one, but you can still hear the Weezer-ness. And it's a great song, so it'd be just plain silly of you not download it. And even sillier of you not to say "Ooh, Silverese, you're so big!" in the comments. To which I shall reply: "Thank you ladies. You didn't have to say that."
