Dick's Picks Volume 13 is a live album by the rock band the Grateful Dead. It contains the complete show recorded on May 6, 1981 at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.[4]

Bob Weir dedicated "He's Gone" to Bobby Sands, a member of the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) who died on a hunger strike while imprisoned in HM Prison Maze on May 5, 1981.

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 13 reads:

"This release was digitally remastered directly from the original cassette tapes. It is a snapshot of history, not a modern professional recording, and may therefore exhibit some minor technical anomalies and the unavoidable effects of the ravages of time."
