Road Trips Volume 3 Number 3 was billed as a 40th anniversary celebration of the album Workingman's Dead. It includes several versions, some acoustic and some electric, of seven of the eight songs that appear on that album, omitting only "High Time". The album contains material from two concerts — the early show and the late show — performed on May 15, 1970, at the Fillmore East in New York City. Like many early 1970 Grateful Dead shows, these concerts featured both acoustic and electric sets. The New Riders of the Purple Sage (NRPS), with whom Jerry Garcia was playing pedal steel guitar, also performed at these concerts, between the Dead's acoustic and electric sets. The NRPS sets are not included on this release.[4]
Bill Graham is heard introducing the band at the early show, identifying them as "Pigpen on organ"; "from Atherton, California, this is Mr. Robert Weir"; "from Marin Junior College, Mr. Philip Lesh" (to which Lesh responds, "That's a lie!" followed by Garcia remarking, "That ain't Philip Lesh"); "from 710 Ashbury Street, Mr. Jerry Garcia"; and "on drums, the son of Lenny Hart, Mickey Hart." Hart's father was the Grateful Dead's original money manager and had disappeared with approximately $155,000 of the group's profits only two months before.
A fourth, "bonus" disc was included with early shipments of the album. The bonus disc contains additional material from the same concerts as well as four songs from the concert held the previous evening, May 14, 1970, at Meramec Community College in Kirkwood, Missouri. The version of "Easy Wind" from May 15 was previously released on the album Fallout from the Phil Zone.[5] Including the material from the bonus disc, this release includes both May 15, 1970 Fillmore East Shows in their entirety except for the acoustic performance of "Candyman" from the late show.
Another live Grateful Dead album recorded during this same month is Dick's Picks Volume 8, which also includes both acoustic and electric sets.

Sound quality[edit]

The album was released in HDCD format. This provides enhanced sound quality when played on CD players with HDCD capability, and is fully compatible with regular CD players.
