Product Description


Dave Matthews Band's first album, Remember Two Things, was self-released in 1993, and was reissued by RCA in 1997. Truly serious Dave Matthews fans all have well-worn copies on the original Bama Rags label, and will tell you they bought them from Dave himself. But if you're less of a hard-liner, this package will do nicely. It's a live album, with the exceptions of "Seek Up" and "Minarets," and the band's sound is pretty much all there. So are the radio hits from Under the Table and Dreaming. If you want only one live document, Live at Red Rocks has more key tracks. But no Dave Matthews fan wants only one live document. Bonus Track (of sorts): "Seek Up (Reprise)." --Gavin McNett

The opening live songs fall flat compared to their later versions, but don't let that fool you. The rest of the album is worthy of masterpiece status. From the smooth funk of "One Sweet World" and "The Song That Jane Likes" to the dark, dreary "Seek Up" to the sweet acoustic number "I'll Back You Up," the band's then-developing musicianship and Dave's flowering songwriting make this one of the greatest independently-released albums of all time.
The album opens well with "Ants Marching" and "Tripping Billies," though those who are accustomed to hearing more developed versions will cringe at the smooth edges of these two early versions. Then we get to "Recently," a song that showcases the band's early jamming capabilities and is one of the album's highlights. An early "Satellite" comes next, which really doesn't sound much different from the single version. "One Sweet World" follows, which is one of the strongest tracks on the album and DMB's pocket gem of sorts. "The Song That Jane Likes" is also an amazing funk number. "Minarets" is the first of two studio tracks featured on Remember Two Things, and is also amazing. "Seek Up," the other studio track, is an extremely dark look at the world, and is on and off my favorite DMB song. "I'll Back You Up" and "Christmas Song" are two acoustic songs that Dave recorded with Tim Reynolds and are a fitting end to such a wonderful album.
Chances are, if you're reading this, you'll enjoy this CD. Maybe even be obsessed with with. I was. It's also essential for DMB fans.

I think it's generally agreed that when most bands first start out they're a bit wobbly and uncertain of what their sound is, and it takes a few studio releases and several years of experimenting together before they come into their own to put out a really good album. Roughly two years after their inception DMB proves they're the exception to the rule with their first, independently released album, and that's probably because it's largely an actual representation of what they're known for doing best: performing live. The mood is delicate, the songs are generally slow and lenghty, and the band takes its time carefully crafting a masterpiece featuring lyrics that are simple but that carry a deeply affecting message. It's an album that celebrates nature, love, and the joy of life, not to mention that Matthews showcases one of his most beautiful love songs ever (something he has a genius for). "I'll Back You Up," "Song That Jane Likes," and "Seek Up" alone make this album worth purchasing.

I first got this CD in 1993 when a friend showed me the cool cover. Since then, it is the most listened CD I own, and a must for all DMB fans. For those who prefer live DMB to the radio edits, and who enjoy the sound of "Under the Table" more than "Everyday," you have to listen to this.
The great thing about R2T is that it doesn't sound overproduced and made for the masses. For a self-produced CD, the songs are very clean and high quality. I had this for abo 2 years before I realized it was actually a live CD.
This has the best version of Ants Marching I've heard, including the 60 second drum solo up to the first cord. You can almost feel the excitement of the crowd as it approaches closer and closer and it's a great way to start the CD. "The Song that Jane Likes" and "Christmas Song" are also on this CD, and a must for any early DMB fans.
If you want to hear what DMB sounded like in the prime of their careers, without the songs muddled down with electric guitars, backup singers, and tons of instruments, R2T is the way to go.

Being a hardcore Dave fan, I have a well-worn copy of this album. This album shows listeners what the band was like before they hit it big, and they truly were amazing back then, too. The songs are all great, and this is the only place you can find a studio version of the track "Seek Up," and the only album that has "The Song that Jane Likes." The CD is wonderful, and it's got the original version of "Ants Marching" with seventeen snare taps, rather than the three that Steve Lillywhite (their long time producer) cut it down to for the cut on "Under the Table and Dreaming." The album is a wonderful mix of live and studio tracks, all of which are awesome. The CD is a must own for any Dave fan.
Ants Marching (10 of 10)- A great live version of a song that would make them huge. The song is awesome, and the band does a great job on it. The lyrics are upbeat, great, and the music is awesome. Boyd does a great job here.
Tripping Billies (10 of 10)- It's cool to see how long a song has been around before finally making its way onto a CD. It waited to appear on "Crash" several years later, their second major album on RCA. The song is great, and once again Boyd plays awesome, in a rockin' solo. This song contains probably their most quoted line, "Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die."
Recently (10 of 10)- Although the live version on "Red Rocks" is a lot better, this song it still awesome, and it's cool to see how it's evolved over time. It's a very good song with very original lyrics.
Sattelite (10 of 10)- One of my all time favorite Dave songs, it is awesome to hear it this early in their career. This song was originally called "After Her" (you can find it on the internet to download) and it later evolved into this.
