About this album

Before These Crowded Streets is the third studio album by Dave Matthews Band, released on April 28, 1998. It is the last official album by the group to be produced by longtime producer Steve Lillywhite and their first album recorded at The Plant Recording Studios in Sausalito, California. The album title is taken from the lyrics of the song “The Dreaming Tree.” It is one of only two Dave Matthews Band albums released on vinyl; the other being Big Whiskey And The Groogrux King. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 charts after selling 421,000 units in its first week of release, which in turn knocked off the Titanic soundtrack from the top spot after a run of 16 consecutive weeks at #1.
