Jamie first appeared on DGC Rarities, Vol 1, a Geffen compilation of rare and unreleased tracks by the label’s artists. A paean to the band’s lawyer Jamie Young, it was scheduled to be Weezer’s first release, but was dropped (not even the Weezerpedia knows why), and didn’t even make it onto their debut album, The Blue Album.

In September 1994, Jamie appeared as a b-side to the single Buddy Holly, before inclusion a decade later on the re-released deluxe 2CD version of The Blue Album.
