Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Lay down in your mother's arms... July 4 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Start for a Great Band April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
Remember Two Things is an album which documents a certain time and place for the Dave Matthews Band and it's fans. It is a fine self-produced showcase of the roots of a band that would explode with the more polished and vibrant Under the Table and Dreaming. The three songs that would show up on later studio albums, as well as numerous live albums; Ants Marching, Tripping Billies and Satellite, sound a bit flat here. There are also better live versions of Recently and Seekup, most notably on Live at Red Rocks. But this is the only place to find full band treatments of One Sweet World(probably the best song on this disc), The Song That Jane Likes, Minarets and I'll Back You Up(the other highlight). For those of us who have a worn out Bama Rags copy, this album will always bring back memories and hold a special place in our hearts. For newer fans used to the better produced albums, this album might disappoint. But then again, it might not...

3.0 out of 5 stars Somebody Wake Me When It's Over March 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
Remember Two Things is oh so sensitive, oh so soft, oh so meandering, oh so indulgent and oh so l-o-o-o-o-n-g. From the interminable repeated one note drum opening on Ants Marching to DMB's take on Jesus, Christmas Song, you listen to this and see how his underground reputation built steadily. But even back then you also see his long-range limitations, kind of this decade's Bruce Hornsby and the Range. For me, I'm mighty glad he got some good advice along the way on livening up his arrangements, making some of the best cuts on his first couple of albums well worth keeping as mp3s. As for Remember Two Things, once you get through the single drumstick opening, Ants Marching and Satellite carry the CD but the rest is for historical and rabid DMB fan interest only.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where it all started March 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Listening to Remember Two Things is like listening to album 1 of DMB's greatest hits. Every song is notably good, especially my favorite Seek Up. My one complaint with this, and its a small one, is that the songs are almost too slow at points. Ants Marching and Satellite take a long time to start. The studio versions of these songs were altered slightly to speed them up in places. Still, Remember Two Things stands unmatched for a top self-produced debut album.

4.0 out of 5 stars simply beautiful Feb. 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beginning of Something Great! Feb. 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This cd has mostly live tracks with only 2 tracks (Minarets and Seek Up)being done in the studio. This is a strong release with some of the bands best tunes on here like "ants marching", "tripping billies" and "seek up. The audio quality of the live tracks is great. All of them sound crystal clear. You really cannot go wrong with purchasing this piece of music history. I can't believe it took me so long to buy it!

I just appreciate how the album highlights Trax and The Floodzone. Can you tell which is which? The Dave Matthews Band was, is, and always will be a live band.
