DM without the B
on 27 October 2002
I know that due to the "Import" status, this is rather pricey in the UK, but it is a great 2CD set.
This is a great record. I am not a huge DMB fan, but I love acoustic break-downs. It amazes me that there isn't a bigger market for the "unplugged" kind of stuff any more. It is wonderful in that, I think, that you get closer to the music when it is simple without a lot of distractions. You hear a lot more of what is trying to be said.
The thing I like about this record most, is the band arrangements played by the guitar. A very competent musician, Tim Reynolds was a very good compliment to Dave Matthews.
I love the versions of Ants Marching, the Christmas Song, Crash Into Me, and quite a few more. The best song, thought, is the the improv song called "Little Thing." This record is a must have for any Dave Matthews fan, but it is also great for those who are not all that in to the fiddle, and sax music that is staple in Dave Matthews Band record.
