Critical receptionEdit

On AllMusic, Fred Thomas wrote, "This date finds the band in fantastic form, using a sound system that predated their famous "wall of sound" amplifier system by just a month, and spinning their cosmic wheels through a spirited first set of rockers... before relaxing into more wide-reaching territory in the second and third sets on extensive jams.... The sound is exceptional... and the vibe is more energetic and bright than usual, resulting in one of the more lively Dave's Picks to focus on the early–'70s era Dead."[5]
