Rev. Syung Myung Me: Where the Residents live videos are typically lousy, their live albums (and their live shows themselves) are excellent. This is one of my favorites – it's a retrospective show, with new arrangements of their songs, typically a couple from every album, along with a few covers, a few side projects (some stuff from Title In Limbo and a Snakefinger song show up) and whatever else they felt like putting in the show. It's recorded pretty well, and they're good arrangements. I've heard rumors that Mark Mothersbaugh was a Resident for this tour – there's a little musical quote from "Jocko Homo" in the synth part to this version of "Eva's Warning", which I've always thought was a little nod to that. This is definitely an essential release, and a pretty good starter, actually.
