Before Dave Matthews Band sold over 30 million records worldwide, saw 6 consecutive studio albums debut at No. 1 and attracted millions of fans across 20 years of acclaimed live shows, they were a one-of-a-kind group from Virginia looking to make a name for themselves in a music scene dominated by loud guitars and louder angst. Remember Two Things, the band’s first official release on their own Bama Rags label, remains an important calling card for fans everywhere — and it’s being reissued this year, including two bonus tracks and a vinyl release for the first time ever!
This new CD reissue features the original album expanded with two previously unreleased bonus tracks: early studio versions of Pay For What You Get and Typical Situation, newly mastered by original album engineer David Glasser. A 2LP 180-gram deluxe audiophile release, cut from new lacquers, features the original album packaged in an individually numbered gatefold jacket and a new eight-page booklet with full lyrics and rare, unseen photos of the band. A download card is included that features the full album and both bonus tracks.
Remember Two Things, a bona-fide word-of-mouth sensation which earned the band a platinum record in 2002, remains the first and best introduction to the DMB sound. That sound would soon take the world by storm with the release of their major-label debut Under The Table And Dreaming in 1994, but for the band’s most loyal fans, Remember Two Things is truly where the band’s story begins.

Also available is Live Trax, Vol 30, 8.16.93-8.18.93, The Muse, Nantucket, MA, a perfect companion to the reissue of Remember Two Things and takes the listener to a certain place and sound in DMB history. There couldn’t be a more comprehensive picture of what it was to witness the band at this time.
