There's so many good songs, and so many good singers. As related above, this project grew up organically, and at a certain point, we just hit the limit of what two CDs out for wide distribution could hold. (The collection has well over two hours of music on it.) I'd love to see another collection come out in a few years with different songs, different singers. There's a wealth of legacy and friendship out there.

Jay's piece on the CD is a wonderful version of Daddy What's a Train, sung for his daughter. For those who never heard him on A Prairie Home Companion or elsewhere - you're in for a treat. Jay's a top-notch guitar player and a fine singer.
