Altri documenti dai due ultimi concept tour dei Residents, Wonder of Weird e Shadowland: rispettivamente una compilazione dal vivo con il meglio del concerto tenuto ad Amsterdam il 20 maggio 2013 (Marching to the See) e le musiche di ingresso utilizzate in apertura dei concerti dello scorso maggio (The Highway).

Holding up the underground since 1972, The Residents celebrated four decades of unbridled creativity with The Wonder of Weird, their 40th anniversary tour. This album, Marching to the See, collects the musical highlights from that tour. Having recently come out as Randy, Chuck and Bob after years of anonymity, the group now presents itself in concert as the ultimate offbeat power trio, pared down to guitar, keyboards and vocals. Shrugging its collective shoulders, the band re-interprets and devours its classic material like a hungry horse inhaling hay, while still stumbling along at full speed. Sex, shrugs and anti-rock'n roll - it's all there in The Residents' Marching to the See.
If you got to see the Shadowland concerts, then you will be able to relive the moments prior to said shows. If not, you can pretend as if you are there (but then are forced unexpectedly to leave just before the show starts): The Highway.
