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!

We haven't selected a daily winner yet. The first person to answer correctly will get to pick a Road Trips of their choice. To get started, login or register using the form above.
We haven't selected a winner for the week of 11/22 yet!

smokes

I just finished listening to this whole show, it fairly smokes! There's a killer Scarlet/Fire in the Cornell mode (i.e., spot-on and energized with a super-sweet Jerry solo in Scarlet), a real smooth Terrapin and a moment in drums that kinda scared the shit outta me.
I hope that's not too much in the way of a hint! It's almost midnite though so maybe that's not such a bad thing if it is...

yepp, uh-huh

I just wanted to thank Dead.net and also the Heads that help out on here. The whole thing is truly beautiful in every sense of the word and can in no means be interpreted using mere words.

...free yourself...

He's Gone (B)...

Does anyone know if there is any way I can get the "He's Gone (B) @ L'Olympia Theater Paris France - 5/4/72"? I missed one day, and of course, now I cannot download it!
Thanks for the help!

Too Much Fun

This was the first day that I missed the morning.

Just got home and all your hints were fun to read. Hadn't used hints before.

I'm tired, and baked, and it took me like 20 minutes to understand what you all were talking about. I'm like: Oh right. Holiday. Far out man!

I love this S#*%!

I pretty much knew in my heart it was from 78. Reading some of the clues pointed me in a direction, along with my Deadbase X to help narrow it down more. This is fun.

Hmmmmmm...

No clue last night. A "pop quiz" would be an interesting, especially since I don't have to work today and I'd have time for research.
One of the things I like about this promotion is when some of the heads write, "Hey, I was at this show!" That's cool, especial if they give a little story of that day, like, "That was the show where I got separated from my brother and I got a ride home from a girl I never met before. I ended up getting married to her three years later."

SirMick?!?!?

SirMick?!?! SIR-Bleedin-MICK?!?!? How the HAY-el did he manage to win yesterday's when he couldn't even guess the New Speedway from 09-20-70?!?

(Oh, wait; here's a clue for you--SHN 27583!!!!!)

Yeesh! Here's hoping David picks Reuben and Cherise before this contest is over. I doubt I'll stand a chance otherwise.

my policy is to listen now, make my guess, and download later today (when the site is less crowded)

Okay download seems to be working. Checked, and this is not from 10/3/80 as guessed. Into drum is different, 10/3/80 ran longer, and this has some decently savage runs toward the end not present in the 10/3/80 version. That version ran about 7:25 song length, this file is 8:52 long, and the song runs 8:36 of that, placing it over 1 minute longer than the Warfield version guessed.
