AllMusic Review by

A promotional compilation album sent out to various American radio stations to promote the Residents after the release of Duck Stab, hence the full title "This is a special DJ record of the Residents' alleged music. Please Do Not Steal It! Keep it at your station - we need the radio airplay. Much obliged." Drawing from all four albums up to that point, the selection focuses on the side of the group that approaches pop, as much as you could call "Constantinople" and their tortured version of "Gloria" pop. Also includes Snakefinger's "The Spot," which is pretty close to a Residents number anyway (they wrote and produced it). A very rare promo LP, but contains nothing unavailable anywhere else. Released in Europe and Australia as Nibbles.
