Allmusic 3/5 stars [1]

On Allmusic, Steve Leggett said, "This ten-song budget compilation can hardly begin to catch the whole ragged familial appeal of the Dead, but it does, given its brevity, provide snapshots of the band at different points in time, which makes it a pretty nice and low-priced purchase for the absolute novice fan. Deadheads will already have every song here ten times over and in countless versions."[1]
