The album omits the songs "It Must Have Been the Roses" and "Sunrise", which followed "Good Lovin'".[1] It also includes the first performance of "China Cat Sunflower" in over three years, which is audibly greeted with applause from the audience.[1] The final four tracks on disc three constitute the songs taken from the December 30 concert.[1]

Caveat emptorEdit

Each volume of Dick's Picks has its own "caveat emptor" label, advising the listener of the sound quality of the recording. The label for Volume 10 reads:

"This release was digitally mastered directly from the original half track 7½ 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."
