Formats and Editions


''Live at Red Rocks 8.15.95'' is an album by the Dave Matthews Band, released on October 28, 1997. It was recorded live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado on August 15, 1995. The album is known on the Internet by the abbreviation L@RR. The band's performance was during the third consecutive year at which they had played at the venue (although in 1993 only as a warm up for The Tragically Hip / The Samples). Guitarist Tim Reynolds guested with the band during the entire show. Most of the songs featured were from the band's most recent album ''Under the Table and Dreaming''. "Seek Up," "Recently," and "Tripping Billies" originally appeared on the band's first album, ''Remember Two Things'', while "Proudest Monkey," "Two Step," "Lie in Our Graves," and "Drive In Drive Out" would not appear as studio recordings until the release of ''Crash'' in 1996. "#36" was later reworked into the song "Everyday," which was included on the album of the same name in 2001.

''Live at Red Rocks'' was the first of many live releases by the Dave Matthews Band. Before this release, live concerts were only available as bootleg recordings, which lacked audio mixing and remastering. Despite being a live release, the album was very successful during its release, hitting #3 on the album charts, and selling over two million copies. This release has so far been the band's most successful live release to date. Due to its popularity, the band went on to release the live album ''Weekend on the Rocks'' featuring highlights from a four-night stand at Red Rocks in 2005. - Wikipedia
