Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: Dave Matthews Band
Under the Table and Dreaming was the 1994 debut album from the Dave Matthews
Band. The album contains the single "What Would You Say," which features Blues
Traveler's John Popper on harmonica. Two other singles from the album are "Ants
Marching" and "Satellite."
Originally released on RCA Records on September 27, 1994, Dave Matthews Band's
Under The Table And Dreaming introduced the Virginia-based quintet to a national
audience with an alternative, folk-tinged approach to pop/rock music that
resonated in a post-grunge world.
The Virginia-based Dave Matthews Band — singer/guitarist Dave Matthews, drummer
Carter Beauford, saxophonist LeRoi Moore, violinist Boyd Tinsley and bassist
Stefan Lessard — earned early acclaim as independent artists for Remember Two
Things, which captured the band's diverse sound in a mostly live setting. The
group's impressive fan base led to a deal with RCA Records, who paired them up
for their first studio album with acclaimed producer Steve Lillywhite, whose
eclectic work included collaborations with U2, The Rolling Stones, Peter Gabriel
and The Pogues.
Lillywhite's crisp approach in the studio was an intriguing complement to the
band's loose and easygoing but intricately-arranged song styles, making for an
album that satisfied longtime fans while attracting new listeners. (Lillywhite
would produce the band's next two albums and reunited with DMB on 2012's Away
From The World.)
New studio recordings of "Ants Marching" (their first Top 40 hit) and
"Satellite," heard in live form on Remember Two Things, remain highlights, along
with the spirited lead single "What Would You Say" (powered by a harmonica solo
from John Popper of Blues Traveler and a colorful, Grammy Award-nominated video
that earned heavy rotation on MTV) plus live favorites "Jimi Thing," "Dancing
Nancies" and "Typical Situation." Ultimately, the album was certified six times
platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and remains one of the
band's most beloved studio releases.
