Dave Matthews Band Remember Two Things on Numbered 180g 2LP + Download
The Dave Matthews Band originally formed in Charlottesville, Virginia, in early 1991 when vocalist/guitarist Dave Matthews decided to put some songs he had written on tape. Instead of simply recording himself with a guitar, he opted to bring in some instrumental help to give his musical ideas more depth.
Matthews found assistance in drummer Carter Beauford and saxophonist LeRoi Moore, who were both accomplished jazz musicians in the local Charlottesville music scene. Based on the recommendation of distinguished local jazz guru John D’earth, 16-year-old musical prodigy Stefan Lessard came on board to play bass. Completing the lineup was classically trained violinist Boyd Tinsley.
In November 1993, DMB released its debut album, Remember Two Things, on its own Bama Rags label. Co-produced with John Alagia, the 10-song set is comprised of a mix of live material ("Ants Marching," "Tripping Billies," "Recently," "Satellite," "One Sweet World," "The Song That Jane Likes"), acoustic songs with Tim Reynolds ("I'll Back You Up," "Christmas Song") and studio recordings ("Minarets," "Seek Up"). Remember Two Things debuted on the college charts as the highest entry – a significant accomplishment for an independent album - and has subsequently been certified Platinum.
