Notes

The track with Garcia was recorded at Grisman's studio in Mill Valley on December 28, 1992.

The CD booklet provides brief notes about each track. The notes for Dawgnation are;

Many happy hours were spent in Dawg Studios when Jerry Garcia would come over to jam. Between August 1990 and July 1995 (just three weeks before his untimely death) Jerry and David logged some 40-odd recording sessions. This tune was written by David during one such get-together, and this first recording was made the following day. It is now heard regularly at the DGQ's live performances.
