I'm gonna go ahead and call a fake.  If I'm wrong, I'm wrong...
 
A.  No source and therefore no credibility.
 
B.  
2. Back To Back (Replacements Cover) - I'd like to think they'd pick a cooler 'Mats song  
3. Take Me Out - Since there's no description, I'm assuming this is supposed to be "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"?  No way they'd put a cheesy novelty song on here before awesome songs like Nothing Change Change You or Don't Change.  And no way they'd put it at track 3.
4. Streets Of Philadelphia/Buffalo (Bruce Springsteen Cover) - No way they'd change words
7. Black Balloon (Robby Vocals) - Seems like a terrible idea.  Like the song, love Robby, but they don't go together.
10. 2(9) Days In February - What?  I'd like to believe they wouldn't have done ANOTHER remake of Two Days.  And I don't think they'd play off an old title.  
11. Acoustic #4 (New Recording) - See #10.
13. Bitch - Just seems unlikely with the Lance vocals and all... I also suspect they'd favor B-Sides from Mike's days rather than George's.
 
C. Skeptical on the video disc because Robby said he was looking at old PBS and VH1 footage to include, which seems to not be present.
 
I believe Lazy Eye will be on there and I believe the possible date.  And that's about it...

I agree with nmf009 for all the same reasons.  Plus "In the Mist" and "Pocket Watch" don't seem like titles they would name their songs either.

I'm inclined to agree with Nicole.  The track listing sounds fake to me.  I could see Lazy Eye and I'm Awake Now being on there, an instrumental of Before It's Too Late, and a cover of a Replacements song, of course.
 
But the rest seems a bit far fetched ...  
a) Black Balloon with Robby on vocals doesn't seem likely at all; they just don't go together at all
b) a new mix of Hate This Place; wasn't that just filler on the Dizzy Up The Girl album
c) Acoustic #4 and 29 Days In February; they sound more like puns than actual songs
d) Pocket Watch and In The Mist; WTF?!
e) Bitch; didn't George do the drums on that track; if they couldn't use the original Name for the first Greatest Hits CD because of George's drumming, it doesn't seem likely this would be on the second Greatest Hits CD either
f) Blood; is this suppose to be In Your Blood? If it is, I could somewhat believe it could be on there
g) Streets of Philadelphia; I think John mentionned he liked Bruce Springsteen, but I don't think they'd be cheesy enough to change the lyrics to be about Buffalo
h) Iris Demo; ugh, put this song out of its misery already
 
I could go on, but I'm already sick of it.
(Plus there's no version of Give A Little Bit on it.  Cheesy)

That deserves a banning, Mike.  Until then, here's a frowny face to show my disapproval.  Angry

I didn't say anything about these because who knows what to except fron new songs, but I agree with Mike and Carlyn, these are very unlikely titles coming from the Goos.  Also, I can't imagine that if there will be new songs on this album that they would have been recorded yet, and therefore wouldn't have proper names yet.
Quote:

I had speculated on GHV1 that the rerecording of Name was done to avoid costs, but it was never officially stated by anyone.  Also, they'd still be allowed to use George's drumming, as shown by EOAC, they'd just have to pay him.  And since I expect there to already be covers on this album, they'll have to pay some people anyways, so it's likely there will be some George drumming (even though I do think they'll favor Mike-era songs).
Quote:
h) Iris Demo; ugh, put this song out of its misery already

Hahahahahaha.  For some reason I'm okay with the chance of an Iris demo.  I feel like Iris was famous enough to make another appearance.  
 
 
Oh, and I'd like to point out that it is almost of unheard of to have a tracklisting out 3 months before the supposed release date.  And I'd like to think that they'll utilize the space on this cd and fill it with 20ish tracks.
 

And it's already been arranged that if GALB is on here in any form, Drew's coming to Buffalo and we're slapping every member of the band.  Feel free to join us.  Cheesy

And none of the supposed new songs are listed in the ASCAP database as John's, Robby's, or the band's.  
 
As comparison, Tuesday is listed as written by John and performed by the Goos.

Hopefully, anything labelled as a "new recording" doesn't indicate a song that was left off of Let Love In. Because I  would assume they chose the best available songs to go on the album. And if something was worse than those...

Anyhow, I like surprises. I will wait to see the track list when it comes out. Not much of a gambler, I am.

Actually, you'd be surprised. Did you ever see/hear any of Name from the Cleveland show? Because you'd never think of Robby singing it before Johnny made him, but it totally works.
...
Even Mike singing that song works...Trust me, I was there...

Yes, I've seen/heard Robby and Mike singing Name.  Mike singing (dramatically reciting Chris Walken style) did not work for me and if I remember correctly, Robby sounded fine, but Name and Black Balloon are two very different hurdles.  And in my opinion, it seems like a terrible idea.  No worries though, because the more I think about it, the more I know there's no chance in hell this is a real tracklist.
