With the Wild Crowd was recorded in February 2011, just a few days after the anniversary of their debut show on Valentine's Day, 1977.
The album contains classics such as "Love Shack," "Rock Lobster," "Roam," "Whammy Kiss" and "Private Idaho," as well as recent material from 2008's Funplex such as "Pump," "Hot Corner," "Ultraviolet" and the title track.
