Originally released on November 9, 1993, Remember Two Things became a bona-fide word-of-mouth sensation and remains the first and best introduction to the DMB sound. It was the first official release on the group's own Bama Rags label.
Before they sold over 30 million records worldwide, saw six consecutive studio albums debut at No. 1 and attracted untold millions of fans across 20 years of acclaimed live shows, Dave Matthews Band was a one-of-a-kind group from Virginia looking to make a name for itself in a music scene dominated by loud guitars and louder angst. Remember Two Things was recorded live at three clubs - Trax in Charlottesville, VA, Flood Zone in Richmond, VA and The Muse in Nantucket, MA - with the exception of "Minarets" and "Seek Up", which were recorded at Flat Five Studios in Salem, VA. The two new bonus tracks included on this digital download were recorded during this same session at Flat Five Studios.
This high-spirited set found the band - singer/guitarist Dave Matthews, drummer Carter Beauford, saxophonist LeRoi Moore, violinist Boyd Tinsley and bassist Stefan Lessard, with guest contributions by guitarist Tim Reynolds on four tracks - unleashing easygoing but spirited original songs. Dave Matthews Band's foot-stomping take on "Ants Marching," the soothing acoustics of "Satellite," and future concert staples like "Tripping Billies" and "Recently" captured the energy and excitement of a band truly on the verge of major success.
Under The Table And Dreaming, Dave Matthews Band's major label debut, followed in 1994, but for the group's most loyal fans, Remember Two Things is truly where the band's story begins. The album was certified Platinum in 2002. The album cover contains an autostereogram which, when focused on correctly, reveals a person's hand displaying a peace sign.
