Culled from the seemingly bottomless vaults of live Grateful Dead material, Dick's Picks, Vol. 24 finds the band in one of its jammier modes during a 1974 concert in Daly City, California. This era of the Dead is one of their better documented, with the early '70s representing what many consider a creative peak for the group, especially in the live arena. Apart from the usual host of originals and lively covers, they dedicate no less than 40 minutes of their set to playing one of their only occasionally offered "palindromic" medleys, beginning with "Playing in the Band," transitioning into "Uncle John's Band," centering with "Morning Dew," then jamming backwards again into "Uncle John's Band" before ending with four more minutes of "Playing in the Band."
