New Jerry Garcia Tribute Album

There is a new tribute album titled Jerry Jams For Rex. It's a compilation of live recordings by different bands, such as Yonder Mountain String Band, The String Cheese Incident and Phish. And the album is a benefit for the Rex Foundation.

The Rex Foundation was established in 1983 as a non-profit charitable organization by members of the Grateful Dead and their friends. The Grateful Dead did many benefit concerts over the years for the Rex Foundation.

Jerry Jams For Rex was released yesterday, and is available on CD and as a download. There are three bonus tracks on the download version.

I'll be writing a review of this compilation shortly and posting it on Suite101. But the tracks i've listened to so far are all excellent.
