AllMusic Review by

Released to celebrate Mark & Brian's 10th anniversary at KLOS FM in Los Angeles, You Had to Be There! is a double-disc set that features a full disc of morning-radio comedy routines from Mark & Brian and a disc of music culled from their show. As always, if you enjoy wacky morning radio, you're likely to laugh at the selection of broad comedy sketches and song parodies that fill the first disc; if you're not a fan of that style, nothing here will change your mind. The second disc, however, may have enough highlights to appeal to doubters. Like any various-artists collection of this nature, there are several weak moments on the collection, but there are also such songs as Matthew Sweet's "Sick of Myself," Gary Hoey's "Wipe Out," Joan Osborne's "Right Hand Man," INXS's "Need You Tonight," Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein," Mel Tormé's "Blue Moon" and Carl Perkins & Billy Bob Thornton's "Matchbox" that make the collection worthwhile.
