Assorted Secrets

Rev. Syung Myung Me: The Residents have said that they hate this release. It's not actually that bad. It's re-recorded versions of their older songs, taken from a Rehearsal for the 13th Anniversary Show; it wasn't ever intended to be released, but they needed to make some quick money to cover it, so they quietly released it on cassette only. It's kind of low-fi, but considering it was intended for in-house use only, it's not so bad. The arrangements are kinda cool, and it's kind of neat to hear, say, a Resident count off a song – it's one of those things that brings them a little bit of humanity, in a weird sort of way. This was finally re-released on CD by Ralph America, but it's out of print as well. It's not really something to seek out, necessarily, but it's not nearly as bad as everyone says.
