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.
