Notes

The rear cover of Dick's Picks 18 carries the following message.

Caveat Emptor:

This CD was produced using the original 7" reel-to-reel soundboard tapes running at 7.5 IPS and 15 IPS. It is a snapshot of history and not a modern professional recording and may therefore ehibit some minor technical anomalies. We have, however, aimed to make it just exactly perfect, as Dick would have liked it.
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!
The songs are from the following shows.
