The rear cover of Dick's Picks, Vol. 17 carries the following message;
Caveat Emptor This release was digitally mastered from the original 2 track digital audio tapes, and was not recorded with the intent of producing a commercial release. It may, therefore, contain some minor anomalies, although we have aimed to make it just exactly perfect.The rear cover of Dick's Picks, Vol. 1 carried 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!Related releases
