This extra is exclusive to this collection. Even if you bought all of the songs as audio and video downloads (not yet), you'd need the actual CD 2 for the chords to 51 songs, plus brief commentaries you might not otherwise encounter unless you heard Kathy perform the particular song live. The lyrics alone to these songs (and many others) can be found on Kathy's web site, along with a detailed discography of her other published recordings (invaluable for finding some of her melodies).
