Truckin' Up to Buffalo is a double CD soundtrack to the DVD video of the same name by the Grateful Dead. It was recorded at Rich Stadium in Orchard Park on July 4, 1989. There are no differences in the track listings of the CD and DVD versions. Two tracks had already been released: "All Along the Watchtower" was included in the compilation of Dylan songs, Postcards of the Hanging, and "Man Smart (Woman Smarter)" was released on Weir Here - The Best of Bob Weir. The album title is taken from a line in the band's song "Truckin'," which (ironically) was not included in the setlist that night.
