As you might remember from the last episode, this show marks the 1 year anniversary here at the LMP. It has been a year filled with some pretty amazing live performances and I'm hoping the following year will bring more of the same. Looking back on the last 12 months I am blown away at the number of listeners that we have received and also the positive comments I have gotten from some of you. Thank you to everyone for tuning in and for your support of the show.
On that note I'll begin the 2nd year of the live music with a download featuring two of my favorite musicians which were also featured in the very first LMP. This time however they will be joined by a few more friends. During the winter of 2003-2004 Dave Matthews and a few close pals including Tim Reynolds and Trey Anastatio combined musical forces for a limited stop tour in support of Dave's solo album "Some Devil". I was lucky enough to catch their stop in Chicago and to this day it still sits at the top of my all time concert list. In all fairness to other shows I've seen, this was really 3 or 4 shows in one. The concert began with Dave and Tim on acoustics, followed up by the full band, then by Dave and Trey on acoustics and finally an encore with the full band. The variety of songs and band's energy really stand out to me and you can tell my the crowd's energy that everyone else there was equally impressed by it.
The songs I am featuring were included as part of a Best of Dave and Friends compilation I downloaded from dreamingtree.org. Thanks to Brian at antsmarching.org for assembling it!
