+ 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! - Less Info
The Dead Net website has been working extraordinarily well for the last couple of days. The original intent of the contest was for the songs to be made available for one day only but that was temporarily extended due to a minor technicality and a few technical difficulties.
The difficulties appear to have succumbed to a few well-placed kicks to the minor technicality and very few people have any trouble downloading the song of the day.
It's been a total blast so far and there's more to look forward to for the rest of the month so this will be my last post with links to the contest songs that were posted before November 13th.
List o' Links November 13th.

Anyone have links to the Downloads prior to St. Stephen?
thanks alot for the links, i am very Grateful. happy sunday Go Rams
I was waaaayyyy off. I guessed Sept. '72! On my listen, I didn't make out the organ, so when I started seeing that clue show up in the comments section I realized I was off. I love the way Phil's bass thrumps along in this version...
I didn't hear the organ too well, but it's buried in there. But could have sworn Keith's piano in there (even more buried) too. I guessed 12/31/71.
Thank you for the link.. very kind.
wheres todays song?? Am I blind?
I too, did not hear the organ, my guess was 10-19-71, last show before Keith starts. I had a feeling it was late pig era.
