Grateful Dead Download Series: Family Dog at the Great Highway is the first non-sequential release in a series of live digital downloads of the band the Grateful Dead. It was released on December 6, 2005 along with Grateful Dead Download Series Volume 8. The album was recorded February 4, 1970 at Family Dog at the Great Highway, in San Francisco, California. Three of the songs (tracks 1,4 & 5) were broadcast on an NET television special at the time.

Three bonus tracks also date from 1970 in San Francisco. "Dancing in the Streets" is from October 5, 1970; "Monkey and the Engineer" and "Good Lovin'" are from December 31, 1970 (see The Closing of Winterland for another track from the latter concert).

The album is not to be confused with the similarly-titled Family Dog at the Great Highway, San Francisco, CA 4/18/70, recorded the same year at the same venue.
