Dave's Picks Volume 3 is a three-CD live album by the rock band the Grateful Dead. It contains the complete concert recorded on October 22, 1971 at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, Illinois, with bonus tracks from the previous night's show at the same venue.[1][2][3] It was released on August 1, 2012.[4]

Dave's Picks Volume 3 was the third in the Dave's Picks series of Grateful Dead archival releases, the successor to the Road Trips series. It was produced as a limited edition of 12,000 copies.[5]

Critical reception[edit]

On All About Jazz, Doug Collette said, "Previous entries in Grateful Dead archive series have documented the quietly courageous, not to mention authoritative, fashion, by which keyboardist Keith Godchaux made a place of himself in the iconic band's lineup late in 1971, having been enlisted when charter member Ron "Pigpen" McKernan became too ill to tour regularly. But neither Dick's Picks Volume 35 (Grateful Dead/Rhino, 2005) nor Road Trips Volume 1 Number 3 (Grateful Dead/Rhino, 2009) made the case so vividly as does this latest entry in Dave's Pick's Volume 3."[6]
