Weir Here - The Best Of Bob Weir is a 2004 live/studio compilation album featuring former Grateful Dead rhythm guitarist and co-vocalist Bob Weir. As well as tracks by Bob Weir it features recordings by the bands Kingfish, Ratdog, Bobby and the Midnites and the Grateful Dead. Andrew Clarke of the The Independent called Bob Weir the genre’s "greatest, if most eccentric rhythm guitarist."[citation needed]

Both "New Minglewood Blues" and "Man Smart, Woman Smarter" are edited performances. The full version of "Man Smart" would later be released on Truckin' Up to Buffalo. "New Minglewood Blues" is missing Brent Mydland's organ solo.
