Default Do you think they will ever re-release Pocketwatch?

As of now I guess the only way to get it is by paying $300 for a cassette on eBay but do you think they will ever re-record the old songs, or just remaster them or anything?

I doubt it highly, I would love it if it was though...
Not even re-master, maybe just re-release one day in one way shape or form...
It's a travesty it wasn't included in the film

I found an unauthorized Pocketwatch CD at a used record store like 7 years ago...but I'll be damned if I knew where it was now.

Whoever made it gave it a decent jewel case, insert, art, the whole bit. I knew it wasn't "official", but whatevs

I hope they rel-release it cassette/vinyl/cd in some sort of box set. I am really surprised Pocketwatch didn't come up in Back and Forth.

there is no way Pocketwatch will be re-released. (at least not any time soon). they didn't even mention this recording in the Foo documentary, which I found surprising.

As far as not being in Back and Forth, maybe its best, why publicize it? Its a thing "fans" know about. If they "spilled the beans" on every cool tidbit that fans know about, every Tom, Dick, and Harry will know and there's no allure to researching the band, it'll all be available in one comprehensive movie.

Just my two cents...

The doc left a lot out, what was 90 minute film could've been a 3 hour film. Left out b-side sessions, letterman, pocketwatch...not much was put into IYH or ESPG either, wheres all the piano inspiration, taylor singing...ect.

I was actually extremely surprised Pocketwatch wasn't mentioned at all.

Precisely! It can't be 3hrs long! That's unrealistic, and most "fans" know about all of those things mentioned.

Thumbs up Re: Do you think they will ever re-release Pocketwatch?

I'm hearing it for the first time right now, love it!

It's like Grohl's "Touch"-Soundtrack.

Just a heads up, but best double check with Jill/Tim that this post doesn't relate to Pocketwatch as well.

Good shout.

I'm sure they'd be ok about it though, the only way you can realistically get hold of Pocketwatch is illegally, either through a CD on ebay or a download.

Oh God Dave did a soundtrack, see this is the kind of stuff I needed to see in the documentary, not a 90 minute summary of stuff all of their fans (the only people who are even watching it) already know.
