Dick's Picks Volume 3 is the third live album in the Dick's Picks series by the Grateful Dead. It was recorded on May 22, 1977 at the Sportatorium in Pembroke Pines, Florida. It was released in November 1995 on Grateful Dead Records.[1]

Dick's Picks Volume 3 was again released, by Grateful Dead Productions, in November 2005 as a digital download.[4]

The track "Sugaree" was also used on the promotional sampler A Glimpse of the Vault, released in 1996.[4]

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 label for Volume 3 reads:

"This show was originally recorded on analog tape manufactured in the late 1970s. Many tapes from this period have exhibited severe deterioration in recent years. The chemical formulation has failed over time, causing the magnetic oxide (which holds the musical information) to separate from the mylar backing. Fortunately we were able to recover the music on these tapes by using a baking process which rebonded the oxide to the tape. While the results of this restoration were quite remarkable, occasional weirdness remains."

Set list[edit]

The complete concert set list for the 5/22/77 show at Pembroke Pines, Florida was:[5]

1: "Funiculì, Funiculà" tuning*, "The Music Never Stopped"*, "Sugaree"*, "El Paso", "Peggy-O", "New Minglewood Blues", "Friend of the Devil", "Lazy Lightning"* > "Supplication"*, "Ramble On Rose", "Dancing in the Street"*
