Critical reception[edit]

On AllMusic, Fred Thomas said, "Ending the first leg of their 1978 spring tour, the Grateful Dead pulled into the relatively tiny town of Normal, Illinois in late April of 1978 to deliver one of their legendarily epic concert experiences. Dave's Picks, the archive series that picks up where the seemingly inexhaustible Dick's Picks left off, captures the performance in total of over two hours of recordings."[5]
