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!

Wow...

....never heard this "dark hollow" verse before ~ reminiscent of the "muddy water" verse in Rider.
Funny, the recent May '70 road trips was the first live version I've heard where Bob actually sings the "don't make it hard to believe in you" verse (does anyone else get the impression he wrote that one himself? It's very "ring around the sun"-ish for an old swamp tune).

I'll definitely take a stab at this one, though I've never heard it before today.

How do people know

I really don't understand how people are so confident that they can guess when and where each song was performed. I have been a dead head for many years and I own most of their live shows that were officially released on CD. I also have a few old bootleg cassette tapes that I acquired from several friends. Even though I usually can tell by listening to the song a rough estimate of what year it was but to actually know what city the show was actually recorded at is amazing. I even have the dead base book XI. so I have used it to look up the information on shows and I admit I came fairly close on a few of my guesses but I have been wrong every time so far. My guess is that people out there who are actually winning this contest are way more dedicated to the Grateful Dead then I am. I must give these people a real patt on the back for being able to guess correctly on every song. If anybody out there wants to give me some tips or hints on how better to correctly guess these songs I would appreciate it. Anyways, I am just happy that I am able to add new songs to my collection. Also I would like to thank the people who have posted the links to past songs. There were several days that I was unable to download the song or even get on to the site. If it wasn't for those people I would not have the complete list including the two songs with the "B" versions.

The sun will shine at my back door some day, March winds will blow all my troubles away.

Yeah definitely agree with Jace and others, this has to be from '71, such a good year, not so early as the Port Chester run though I would dare venture. Just love that '71 sound!
Thanks to the band and all at Dead.net for this one, Truckin' has to be one of the two or three master all time essential Dead numbers! Yeah:-)

This one's a little tougher

Getting to "about when" isn't too hard - who's there and who's not - but I don't have access to all the shows in that time period so I'mma rollin' the dice here... Thinkin' if you don't already have this show you might have a harder time than usual getting it.

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

what happened to all the links in the comments for downloading past days songs, I missed a couple of days. It would be great if someone could point me to a place where they are available.
Until then I guess I'll keep Truckin'

song endings.?

WHAT is with the ends of these songs.? It seems like every download, I wind up re downloading, just to make sure that the track they are giving us really ends that way. really.? is this the way Truckin ends.? I get 8:27 and 19.38 MBs. Anyone get any different.? Its nice music. I greatly appreciate having a new song to be my song of the "day" but do something with the dangling ends. HUH.? Enjoy your days. !

Lovingly, Steve

Post-Mickey & Pre-Keith 1971

That's my best guess at this point. Cannot hear Pigpen's voice, but can hear his Hammond at points. Nice and raucous performance, even a little raw, and so perhaps somewhere in the February Port Chester shows, Quick guess though, and I could be off. Cannot pick a specific date at the moment. So many of these splendid 1971 Truckins. There's sort of a focused earnestness to the vocals of those February Port Chesters, which is why they come to mind. Monstrously good guitar work from Bobby and Jerry in the last third of the song, starting at 5:31. Lingering drums at the end, and so perhaps one of the many truckin-drums-other sequences. Could also be one of the as yet unreleased Houseboat Tapes. That leaves plenty to choose from ... (smile)

Yeah, this one is fun!

The site continues to perfom FABULOUSLY...

...so good, in fact, that it seems a shame to waste all that server work on a contest that will end in 17 days. I propose A Jerry Little Christmas: twelve days of Garcia downloads followed by a Christmas release of a new Pure Jerry set.

Somebody call up the Garcia girls, let's get this in motion ;)

GREAT Truckin' to start the day! (Yeah, I slept in on the west coast ~ it's that kind of day.)

Definitely sounds like '71, love the Pigpen organ flourish at the very end, wish he'd have been putting that in throughout. LOVE Pigpen's organ.
