Dave Matthews Band Wiki

Recently is a Live EP by the Dave Matthews Band, released in 1994. It was recorded at The Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia on February 21, 1994 as well as at Trax in Charlottesville, Virginia on February 22, 1994.

The image on the cover of the EP represents the nature of the title track, which is about the struggle of two people in an interracial relationship. Lyrics in the song, such as "People stare and we just ignore them," explain the difficulty that they feel in their relationship due to their different skin colors.

The promotional cover of Recently exposed a portion of the woman's breast, and the man stood farther back towards the left side of the image, with a pumpkin visible in his left hand. The Recently promo with this cover was released before the EP itself and features all different tracks, including an alternate edit of the title song. The promotional release, informally referred to as the "Pumpkin Recently," is currently the rarest and most valuable release in the band's catalog. Copies of the "Pumpkin Recently" have appeared on websites like eBay and have been sold for over 500 dollars.
