Dick's Picks, Vol. 25 is one of a series of archival live Grateful Dead CDs were overseen by the late Dick Latvala. It differs from the band's From the Vault series in that the Dick's Picks releases do not feature entire concerts, and are mastered from two- and four-track recordings, rather than eight- and 16-track recordings. Latvala was the official keeper of the Dead's tape archives; the Grateful Dead organization describes him as "one of the original Dead tapers."
