We're on a mission to make a miracle every day. As a token of our appreciation for making 2010 an epic year, we're giving away a high-quality 320Kbps download every day this November. That's 30 days of Dead! Intrigued? We're also going to put your knowledge to the test and give you the chance to win some great music from the Dead.
                                                     + More Info
You know your Ables from your Bakers from your C's, but can your finely tuned ears differentiate the cosmic "comeback" tour from a spacey 70's show? Each day we'll post a free download from one of the Dead's coveted shows. Will it be from that magical night at Madison Square Garden in '93 or from way back when they were just starting to warm it up at Winterland? Is that Pigpen's harmonica we hear? Brent on keys? Step right up and try your hand.

Each day, the first person to guess the venue & date correctly will get a Road Trips of their choice. If you’re not first but you've answered correctly, you will also be automatically entered for a weekly prize of THE WARNER BROTHERS STUDIO ALBUMS VINYL BOX (EXCLUSIVE EDITION) or a FORMERLY THE WARLOCKS boxed set. Log in now and enter to win!

Oh Really Now!?

Well, there were shows on 17,18, 19th - see the poster

However, no setlists seem to be around 'after all these years' for 17 or 19. (& 19th was Fillmore West).

I overlayed the 2 tracks (dead.net's & the archive one from the 18th):

Identical!

So, either the archive show is not really the 18th, after all these years!..

Or, Dead.net has a correction to make - because the track on archive IS the dead.net track's doppelganger!

All good fun, though...

Peace, folks!

It's 3-18-67 that's for sure. Congrats to the winner. It's prolly a typo by Dead.net.

Unfair Contest

Hi ladnarc,
I agree with you that if someone found advanced information and used it, they would be cheating. I did poke around, but did not find a list of songs and dates, and as far as I know, that information was not available to a "poker." I did find other things, and wish I had not done that, as that has sorta spoiled the "surprise factor" of the daily selections. On the other hand, the official Facebook clues (and subsequent replies) make it pretty easy to identify the next day's song Because of what I found, I am personally not entering the contest. I guess sometimes we do things, only to regret them later. If folks do cheat, they just gotta live with themselves.

wrong show date?????????

Wasn't the album The Grateful Dead (1st album) released on 3/17/67? It states it was on wiki and other links I've found. Either the recording date is wrong on the 3/18/67 show I have or Dead.net made a mistake.

A & B???

I downloaded a few of these after the fact. Can someone explain Easy Wind A vs. Easy Wind B? Which one is the official Thirty Days download, why is there an A and b, etc?

cheating

This is a contest to guess specific versions of songs. With more than thirty years of shows, even the most studious of Deadheads would find it nearly impossible to guess exact versions without finding out a little more information. There is nothing in the rules that prevents any of us from using the available resources, and there are many, to help in our efforts. Even with these resources I have spent three or four hours a day before I actually figure out the correct answer. And I don't always get the correct answer. You take the clue for the next day, do a little research and narrow down the possibilities. I do NOT consider it cheating. Anyone else?

Cheating, Part 2

Hi D-Rae,
I do not consider using the Facebook clues and doing research cheating. I'm sorry if my message implied that. I found out the first day of the contest that many, if not all, of the songs where in the download directory. They have subsequently removed them. What I was saying was that, if people found those songs by substituting files names in the links, downloaded them, and then used that information to enter the contest, that would be cheating.

Did anyone ever get this song to download? I kept getting a "Page Not Found" error all day on the 10th and then, of course, it was the 11th and a different tune.

@ D-RAE

I guessed based on my knowledge of the tunes. I submitted my educated guess at 11:01 on the 4th. I guess that's why I won, but come of it had to be attributed to luck! I was not 'sure', but had some semblance of a feeling of the era it was from. All the more fun to win, without toiling on research! It goes to show, you don't ever know...

Size determines if you were

Size determines if you were able to download the whole file or if it cut off in the middle

file size

Gr8fulTed - the song time may be reported incorrectly by your music player. The file size at least lets you know if the right number of bytes were received. Some folks would also like to have a hash value to ensure that all the bits were properly received, but that's probably overkill for this endeavor.

this was my prediction for today's song...

... back on the posts for yesterday's China-Rider (got the clue from dead-net)

grateful ted - file size is important cos many folks get their downloads cut off before they complete - so it's a check to see if they have the full download

Dead giveaways...

the guitar knob twiddling at the end (by Weir?), and the girl who shouts,"Yay!"

I'm glad I spent time this morning and listened to all 5 on the LMA, and jotted down notes to distinguish them :)

I'm sure tomorrow's song will be more difficult...

not the fillmore

Most of the versions of this tune recorded at the fillmore in 66 are longer than this one so I don't think it's from the fillmore, maybe Winterland?

Fantastic

I couldn't be happier. If this is the show that I think it is, it sure sounds a lot better than the copy I have on my collection.
It sure would make a nice release someday.

That's great that some people get a headstart and know what song it is going to be beforehand so they can cheat.

File Size

Not sure why the file size for mine is larger than others. I downloaded on a Mac and opened in iTunes. Maybe that bumped the file size up? Oh well...

Fore Knowledge of Song

The hint posted on Facebook last night practically gave the song title. I don't consider that cheating. Now, for some folks that have poked around on the file server even before the hint was given, that would be cheating.
