Notes from the creator:

This is a collection of songs performed by Railroad Earth that were also
done by Jerry in one form or another; Old and in the Way, JGB, and Grateful
Dead. I put together this compilation in an effort to help expand a friend’s musical horizons.

The songs were culled from a variety of source tapes primarily downloaded
from the Live Music Archive. Where more than one version of a particular song was
available I listened to a few to pick the one with the best combination of
recording and performance. This was entirely subjective and not an
exhaustive exercise. Your mileage may vary. I tried to avoid the more
obvious selections like 4/16/05 when Phil sat in with the RRE boys, although
I did use one song from that show, GDTRFB, as it was the only version I knew
of (besides Phil didn?t sing).

I tried to balance recording levels, make cuts and fades so that the
compilation works reasonably well in the order the tracks are listed.
Obviously other combinations would work equally as well, or not.

So I went on vacation and promised that I would be able to post some shows and do lots of links. Obviously that didn’t happen. Turns our we put more miles on the road than I thought (last count was 4,200) which put us in each night late, and made me too tired to care about this blog.

Sorry about that. I’m in Oklahoma for a few days and should be able to post the shows I uploaded before I left. We’ll be home later this week and I’ll upload some more. Then comes Europe and I must say this last week doesn’t bode well for my ability to post links while I’m gone. I remember the exhaustion from last year which makes me think I may not feel like doing anything in Europe. We’ll see. Until then enjoy what I do post, including this excellent Tweedy solo show.

I’m once again in travel mode.  Me and the fam are taking something like two weeks to roam across the Western US.  Over the last two days I did upload a bunch of shows and I’m thinking I’ll slowly pace posting those out so that you guys will get a show or two a day.  Or I might get bored and post them all at once.  Either way I’ll most likely run out before I get home.

Once  do get home I’ll have maybe two weeks before we take off to Europe for three months.  All of which is to say my days of posting regular are coming to an end.  But we’ve gone over that before.

Several of you have recently sent me shows and I want to give a great big thanks for that.  I’m also going to put out a general request for more.  When I’m in Europe I’m really not going to have the time to upload shows.  I’m going to try to link to various bootleg sites with cool shows as often as I can but it would be tremendous if some of my readers could send me shows and allow me to post them.  I love the idea of the Midnight Cafe becoming more of a community site than just me posting shows.

Anyways, as always, thanks for reading.  Enjoy the Talking Heads.
