Dave's Picks Volume 21 is a three-CD live album by the rock group the Grateful Dead. It contains the complete concert recorded on April 2, 1973, at Boston Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. It was produced as a limited edition of 16,500 copies, and was released on February 1, 2017.[1][2][3]

Critical reception

On AllMusic, Timothy Monger said, "The last show of their winter/spring tour, Vol. 21 finds the Dead stretching out over two very long sets which, in spite of their length, do not contain either of their major gig-stretchers of the era. In place of "Dark Star" or "The Other One", fans were treated to a whopping 34-song marathon... Several nice long jams can be found, particularly in the second set, making for a diverse and engaging listen."[4]
