Vintage NRPS is an album by the country rock group the New Riders of the Purple Sage. It was recorded live on February 21 and February 23, 1971 at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, New York, and released in 1986.[2][3]

At the time of the Capitol Theatre shows, the New Riders of the Purple Sage were regularly performing as the opening act for the Grateful Dead. Jerry Garcia was a member of both bands. Garcia would play pedal steel guitar with the New Riders, then play electric guitar and sing with the Dead. A Grateful Dead concert from the same set of shows as Vintage NRPS was released as the album Three from the Vault.
