Reckoning is a 1981 live double album by the Grateful Dead.

It consists of acoustic material recorded live in September and October 1980. Some of the tracks are shortened versions of the live performances.

The material recorded in 1980 was originally intended for release on one double LP set. But the format of the music subsequently steered them towards the release of the two double albums, this and Dead Set. Jerry Garcia commented on this in an interview: "We really ended up with so much good material that it was a struggle. The idea of just one acoustic and one electric record was sort of pathetic, since our electric tunes are seldom less than eight minutes long. And that meant our fat electric album would have two songs on a side. It was kind of silly."

Initial CD releases omitted one track for space reasons. One CD and LP release, by Pair/Arista Records in 1984, was given the title For The Faithful. In 1988 the album was re-issued with the original title.
