Warehouse Statement on 7/19/2005:
4.30.1996 Classic Amphitheatre, Richmond, VA was the show that started the Crash tour. In addition to hearing many new songs for the first time, fans in attendance were the first to hear the new sound system which DMB had recently inherited from the Grateful Dead. This sound system helped to take DMB's live show experience to the next level. The Richmond show was also the show that marks the introduction of multi-track recording on tour. Thankfully, someone was smart enough to realize that fans may want to hear these shows in the future.
Old school fans of Two Step will hear the beginning of the dark side of the song, while Jimi Thing fans are going to be completely blown away by the incredible, almost fifteen minute jam. The band experimented during this show with old favorites and began playing new songs that were soon to become crowd favorites.
The great thing about this show is that it catches the band at a really interesting point in their development. One can still hear the raw energy that the live show was known for, but can also start to hear the polish of a veteran band that is completely comfortable in their surroundings.
