Both albums feature a host of guest bassists paying tribute to Woody. "Volume 2" debuted at No. 117 on The Billboard 200 in October, its predecessor having debuted at No. 128 in November 2001. Phish bassist Mike Gordon also directed a documentary, "Rising Low," documenting the recording of the two albums.
