Caveat Emptor[edit]

Each volume of Dick's Picks has its own "caveat emptor" label, advising the listener of the sound quality of the recording. The one for Volume 27 reads:

"Dick's Picks Vol. 27 was mastered directly from the original stereo soundboard digital audio tapes, and was not recorded with the intent of producing a commercial release. It may, therefore, contain some very minor anomalies, although everything in our power has been done to make it just exactly perfect."
