Road Trips Volume 4 Number 5 is a live album by the rock band the Grateful Dead. Subtitled Boston Music Hall 6–9–76, it includes the complete concert recorded on June 9, 1976, at the Boston Music Hall in Boston, Massachusetts. It also includes six songs recorded on June 12, 1976 at the same venue.[1] The 17th of the Road Trips series of archival albums, it was released as a three-disc CD on November 1, 2011.

This album was the last in the Road Trips series. A new archival release program, entitled Dave's Picks, began in 2012.[2][3][4][5]

Critical reception[edit]

In All About Jazz, Doug Collette wrote, "Set to be supplanted in 2012 by a new sequence of concert recordings dubbed Dave's Picks (overseen by chief archivist David Lemieux), The Grateful Dead's Road Trips archive series ends in stellar fashion with a complete show (plus), capturing the iconic band at one of the highest performing plateaus of its career in one of its favorite cities. Volume 4 Number 5 is a beautifully played and precisely recorded triple-disc set from The Boston Music Hall. The third show of the Dead's first lengthy jaunt since returning from its 1975 hiatus, there's a down-to-earth but nonetheless playful quality to this music.... Few if any notes are wasted there or anyplace during the course of this June 1976 show (or the "filler" that completes the third CD in such rousing fashion).... Road Trips Vol. 4 Number 5, then, is a prime example of what wondrous sensation comes from just the right mix of material played with a commensurate sensitivity."[6]
