Eyeful is a rarities compilation album by The Residents, collecting their 2011-2012 series of online single releases of the same name.

The compilation was first announced in early 2020 by Klanggalerie alongside the Randy Rose and Už Jsme Doma live album Moravian Meeting and was released on June 7th 2020.

History

The Eyeful series of online single releases was active on The Residents' official website from 25th August 2011 to 26th August 2012. It was referred to as "a Bog benefit", with the Bog being The Residents' blog and chat group. Each download cost $0.79 when originally issued.

With such little information on the benefit preserved, the digital downloads were forgotten by the larger Residents fan-base, and had not been compiled onto a proper album release until early 2020, when Klanggalerie announced they would issue a compilation of the series later in the year.

The album ultimately saw release during the global COVID-19 crisis (which also caused the delay of the group's planned Dog Stab! tour dates) on June 7th 2020, alongside the Randy Rose/Už Jsme Doma live album Moravian Meeting.

Three tracks from the original series were dropped from the track listing of the compilation album - "One Minute Movies" live with Molly Harvey in Bordeaux on September 27th 2001, "The Old Woman" live with Molly Harvey, and "The End" (which featured some samples from The Doors' song of the same name).

The track listed on the album as being a lounge version of "Die-Stay-Go", is in fact "Mahogany Wood" - although these two tracks had previously been merged by The Residents to create "Dead Wood" for Our Finest Flowers in 1992.
