Michael Doherty”s Music Log
The Grateful Web

On December 3, 2011 at The Fillmore in San Francisco, the Rex Foundation presented the benefit concert Run for the Roses to celebrate the music of Jerry Garcia, Robert Hunter and the Jerry Garcia Band.

With this compilation of selected tracks from each set, we are able to make the evening’s unique musical experience available to people who could not attend the concert, as well as extend the reach of the benefit so as to provide additional charitable support to the Rex Foundation. This compilation is made possible thanks to the generous contributions of music, talent and resources of the participating artists, as well as the people involved in producing the benefit concert and album.
