Road Trips Volume 1 Number 4 is a two-CD live album by the American rock band the Grateful Dead. The fourth in their "Road Trips" series of albums, it was released on September 30, 2008. It was recorded at the Winterland Arena in San Francisco, California, on October 21 and 22, 1978.[3]

A third, "bonus" disc was included with early shipments of the album. The bonus disc contains songs recorded live at Winterland on October 17 and 21, 1978.[4]

Road Trips Volume 1 Number 4 is subtitled From Egypt with Love. The Winterland concerts of October 17, 18, 20, 21, and 22, 1978, were the first shows played by the Dead after their concerts near the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt a month earlier.[5] Songs from the Egypt performances are contained in the album Rocking the Cradle: Egypt 1978, which was released on the same day as Road Trips Volume 1 Number 4.

Road Trips Volume 1 Number 4 includes a few minutes of music from an audience recording, edited into the mix to complete several songs that were cut on the master soundboard tapes.[6] These songs are "Sugaree", "Stella Blue", "Sugar Magnolia", and "Goin' Down the Road Feeling Bad".
