It was recorded on February 26, 1973 at the Pershing Municipal Auditorium in Lincoln, Nebraska and on February 28, 1973 at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City, Utah. Dick's Picks Volume 28 includes two early versions of "They Love Each Other" with an additional verse.The album liner notes list Ron "Pigpen" McKernan as one of the band members "in spirit". A few days after these concerts, on March 8, 1973, Pigpen died at the age of 27.
Each volume of Dick's Picks has its own "caveat emptor" label, advising the listener of the sound quality of the recording. The one for volume 28 reads:"Dick's Picks Volume 28 was mastered directly from the original analog 2 track tapes, running at 7.5 ips. Although these 30 year old tapes have held up remarkably well, they may exhibit some very minor effects of the ravages of time. However, we've done all we can to ensure your listening pleasure".
