In 1998, the 'Mashed Potatoes' 5 CDr box set was one of the heavily discussed

Billy gave to a select group of people circa 1994, and contains live and
unreleased songs from 1990 to 1992 or so.
In 1998, seventeen songs from the 'Mashed Potatoes' set were encoded in Real
Audio format and posted on a website for a few hours. As of 2007, the entire
set is available in high-quality mp3 if you look for it.
