Volume 4 is the fourth in a series of live digital downloads of the band the Grateful Dead released by The Grateful Dead Productions. It was released on August 2, 2005 and is a three disc set featuring virtually all of the June 18, 1976 show from the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey. "Tennessee Jed" was omitted because the master tape was plagued with technical problems that could not be fixed in mastering. As a supplement to this omission, the third disc contains highlights from concerts later in June 1976 in Philadelphia and Chicago.

June 1976 was the beginning on a near non-stop touring circuit by the Dead that would last up until the band dissolving in 1995 after Jerry Garcia's death. Also, Mickey Hart had just recently returned as the second drummer to the band after a five year hiatus. In the middle of June, the band played three nights at the Capitol Theatre.

New songs for 1976 included "The Music Never Stopped", "Crazy Fingers", "Samson and Delilah", and "The Wheel". The show also featured one of only five Grateful Dead performances of Garcia's song "Mission In The Rain".

Volume 4 was mastered in HDCD by Jeffrey Norman.
