AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

This 2012 disc is a semi-official release of the 1992 radio concert Green Day performed for New Jersey's WFMU FM. Two years shy of Dookie but already banging out "Welcome to Paradise," the trio still sounds raw, which is naturally part of the appeal of this performance: they're stumbling toward greatness, occasionally tripping into the transcendent but most often just knocking out these three-chord anthems with invigorating abandon, and that energy makes this well worth a listen.
