Notes

The rear cover of Dick's Picks 10 carries the following message.

Caveat Emptor:

This release was digitally mastered directly from the original half track 7.5 ips analog tapes. It is a snapshot of history, not a modern professional recording, and although it may exhibit some minor technical anomalies, it is nothing more or less than just exactly perfect.
This notes refers to Bob Weir's announcement to the crowd before the start of the show on 12/29/77 as technical problems are being remedied;
We're gonna try to get everything just exactly perfect . . . on account of our new name is the Just Exactly Perfect Brothers Band.
The rear cover of Dick's Picks, Vol. 1 carried a similar Caveat Emptor and also a message briefly explaining the reason for the Dick's Picks series;
Dick's Picks differs from our From The Vault series in that we simply did not have access to complete shows (nor the modern mixing capabilities afforded by multitrack tapes) But we think the historical value and musical quality of these tapes more than compensates for any technical anomalies... In other words what you hear is what you get. And what you get ain't bad!
