|Dave Matthews Band's THE GORGE captures highlights from DMB's legendary 2002 three night stand at one of the most magnificent venues in the country. Carved in the high basalt cliffs overlooking the Pacific Northwest's Columbia River gorge, the spectacular visual beauty combined with amazing natural acoustics has made The Gorge a special place for Dave Matthews Band and their fans. To make THE GORGE even more special, the band called upon their official fan association, The Warehouse, to help create the track listing for this one-of-a-kind release.
THE GORGE is a special value 2 CD, 1 DVD set containing over 3 hours of music and video. Extra DVD features include the documentary short, "A Look Inside The Gorge," "The Making of The GRACE IS GONE Video," the GRACE IS GONE video, and multi-angle coverage of ANTS MARCHING & WHAT WOULD YOU SAY.

|Though the Dave Matthews Band has released several live albums, THE GORGE stands out from the pack due to its unique recording environment. The outdoor venue in question is carved out of the basalt cliffs adjacent to Oregon's Columbia River Gorge, a canyon in the Cascade mountain range. The space is renowned both for its scenic splendor and natural acoustic properties. As such, the sound quality here is warmer and clearer than a typical concert recording, and the ensemble seems inspired to deliver a top-notch performance. As on the group's other live outings, several tracks here are much longer than their studio counterparts. Particular beneficiaries of this treatment include the baritone sax-driven rocker "Two Step" and the funky world-beat exploration "Lie in Our Graves." In addition to the two audio discs, the set also includes a DVD that presents live footage, videos, and a documentary.|
