Dick's Picks was a series of archive releases of live Grateful Dead music. Generally each volume contains a complete Grateful Dead show (or shows), the majority of a Grateful Dead show (or shows), or a selection of music from a series of consecutive shows.

The releases were sourced from two track master tapes housed in the Grateful Dead vault. Modern mixing methods were not possible and glitches and omissions in the original tapes were carried over onto the released CDs. For this reason Dick's Picks were distributed by Grateful Dead Merchandising and not initially through normal retail outlets.

Dick's Picks Vol. 1 was released in 1993. Band member vetoes delayed the selection and release of a second volume until 1995. Volume 3 followed nearly a year later. From 1997 onward 3 or 4 volumes were released each year.

It appears that DP 36, released in June 2005, was the last release in the Dick's Picks series.

Dick's Picks were named for and were initially organised by Dick Latvala, the custodian of the Grateful Dead tape vault until his death in 1999. From 2000 onwards the vault and the Dick's Picks series was overseen by David Lemieux but the original series name was retained.
