34 songs with Robert Hunter

Seacoast Times online has an article about Jim Lauderdale, who released an album of songs co-written with Robert Hunter. Here's the part of the article that mentions Robert & Jerry:

Lauderdale won a Grammy for his CD with Ralph Stanley, "Lost in the Lonesome Pines," in 2002, and he and legendary Grateful Dead collaborator, Robert Hunter recently released an album together.

"Robert and I got together for a few days and we wrote 34 songs together," he said. "He picked our 13 favorites and put them on a record called ‘Headed for the Hills.’" When prodded for second-hand Jerry Garcia anecdotes, Lauderdale alleges that Hunter is circumspect on that issue. "He never went into detail and I never pushed it. He did say that Jerry was a highly creative person, and that it was sometimes a challenge to keep him focused on the project at hand."
