18 Steps began as the accompanying bonus mini-album to Trey Anastasio's Bar 17 release, consisting of the cutting room floor material that never made it
onto Bar 17. Originally bundled free to every customer who ordered Bar 17,
what began as a simple bonus CD of outtake material soon became regarded by
many fans as a complete record in its own right. In respons, 18 Steps is now
available as its own record, available only through Trey's online store via
his own Rubber Jungle Records. Featuring studio versions of fan-favorite
live material such as "Dark And Down" and "Low," 18 Steps also boasts unique
acoustic snippets never before released or played live such as "In Spirals,"
"Agnes" and "Rose Alone." In hindsight, 18 Steps is more than just extra
material from the Bar 17 sessions, it completes the picture that Bar 17
started. In fact, Shine completes the trilogy as much of the material from
all three albums was written during the same time period. For a complete
view of Trey's mindset and musical career from 2004-2006, all three albums
must be taken into consideration.
