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!

aargghh

From all the comments, I know which one this is, but won't get to it for quite a few more hours...

Really psyched if it's true this is better quality than has circulated. Only wish, in that case, that the song it's coming out of was included, too! One of the great early transitions, and a moment that debunks the theory that they weren't the Grateful Dead until Mickey joined. Which is no dig on Mickey ~ he was obviously quite taken with the '67 band, too ; )

Theory debunking

I've never heard that theory about them not being the Grateful Dead until Mickey joined. Does that mean they stopped being the Grateful Dead after Mickey left. That's a silly theory.

THANK YOU @ Canyon critter!

Thank you Canyon Critter for posting the links to the downloads. My work schedule often prevents me from grabbing the downloads on the day they are released and you posting the links helps me out so much!

Thank you Dead webmaster and contest folks

I was quickest with the right location and date on day 3, and today UPS brought my chosen Road Trip. I am currently listening to Fire On The Mountain from the 1993 Cal Expo Vol 2 No 4 Bonus Disc, and it is just great. Thanks very much for everything!

Tomorrow's FB Clue...Turn away if you like to be surprised!

"Tomorrow's 30 Days of Dead Clue: This song was one of the longest-tenured tracks in Grateful Dead's history, played consistently from 1966 to 1995."

Among a bunch of bad guesses: "Tuning".

report from a contest winner

I too was a contest winner like JohnCesano, I won on day 4. But, my situation went a little differently than his it seems. I never received the promised email after I won. I had to follow up on it myself after a week passed with no email. The good news is customer service was great and I should be getting my BIG ROCK POW WOW discs soon. I got the shipping confirmation today and a refund for my pre-order. So here's the lesson: if you win - don't be complacent and wait if you don't get the promised email - follow up!

No BIODTL in '95

Last one was Boston Garden in Oct '94. There are several songs that were played in both '66 and '95 with hundreds of versions in the years between, even if you exclude the covers of Dancin', Baby Blue (which as has been pointed out, dead.net can't really give away free for nuthin').

Less than a helpful clue, but since quite a few of the FB commentators appear to be clueless it's all good

heartily agree!!

Yes, we need more Jerry. Yes, I'd love to hear 1974!! Let It Rock would be fantastic. If not here then the "12 Days of Jerry"? Still my fave idea from these comments. Many thanks!!

Ya Canada eh!

It is so cool to have a better recording from the Toronto show. Anyone know about getting anything from when the Dead played in Vancouver? Awesome recording much appreciated to have north of the 49th included. 30 Days of Dead is an awesome idea, and thanks for keeping the downloads around.

Yeah, he does make it sound like he got the bonus disc...

When I first read that post I assumed he was listening to an RT he already owned, not the one he won. I misread it, obviously.

The store info isn't necessarily 100% accurate, perhaps. Or maybe dead.net has a secret stash of the Trips with the bonus discs - which would piss me off if I was one of the people who had bought a copy and was told the bonus discs were no longer available. I'm easily pissed off though ;). I do have a friend that got the Winterland '77 box several months ago, and he said it had the bonus disc in the box, I thought that was only with the preorders and the Store page doesn't even mention a bonus disc anymore.

John, you got a copy with the bonus disc? Awesome. The set is $46 on eBay, that's a twenty dollar bonus disc ya got there LOL.

(Sure do wish TPTB would get some of the videos back in print on DVD, as long as I'm bitching about the store...)

WELL WELL WELL

I just realized I did go to 1 show in 1980! Maine State Fairgrounds on 09-06 1 day b4 my birthday we got stuck in traffic & missed Roy Buchanan, Levon was just having a grand old time as the 2nd opener of the day. It was a sea of Deadheads in Lewiston, ME. that day a fairgrounds on a DEAD end street. Talk about a log jam!

Tomorrow's download (11/17) -- prediction from Facebook clue

The facebook clue for tomorrow's (11/17) download is that it was one of the most consistently-played songs in the Dead's repertoire. They played it during their entire career, from 1966-1995. My guesses are Cold Rain and Snow, Don't Ease Me In, or Me and My Uncle. Hoping for Cold Rain and Snow.

Loveya,

Jolie

Crap, forgot we already had a Rider...giggles....

My memory ain't what it used to be, not that it ever was.

Yeah I figured Uncle was still under copyright; the guy that wrote BIODTL died in '76 so I don't know about that one, or how to find out if it's still covered. Cold Rain it is, fits the weather lately.

Gotta go now, before that trippy animated rose gives me a seizure...or a flashback..@;^D

Thanks again, Helena...

.. alot of those RTs look sweet, with or without the bonus discs, but it sure would influence a contest winner's decision to know whether or not they are actually available :-)

Love all the back and forth on this board. Much love to all and peace!

Hello Night Owls!!

Based on what we have heard in the two-plus weeks of the 30 Days promotion:

Which of the featured shows would you want to see on the next Road Trips or Box Set?

My #1 vote is Euro 72-Paris.

How about you?

Another possibility for tomorrow although, while they played it at least once every year, they didn't get a chance to play it in 1995 :-(

The same. I should have a "Road trips" with the show of Paris (France) 5 4 72.

Paris sounds pretty good for an RT...

Love the Europe '72 stuff.

Another, bigger multidisc "rare cuts and oddities" release would be pretty cool. I'm guessing there's a bunch of older stuff with bits and pieces that are perfectly enjoyable, but the entire show(s) might be of unacceptable quality due to tape damage.

Without digging into setlists or reviews of the shows, I see some '80s runs at nice venues that look like they might make good boxes.

Yes, my Road Trip did come

Yes, my Road Trip did come with the bonus disc, which was a real bonus as the expectation was that it would not be included. The G-L-O-R-I-A Gloria is so sweet.

I don't know if the bonus disc was thrown in because of the contest win, or if that Road Trip is still shipping with it. Either way, I am truly grateful.

Helena, I never looked on eBay, but it is nice to know my prize was prizier C'mon, prizier is a great new word, so stop with the red underline spellcheck warning.

My prize did not come without a little help. I also had to follow up, but I cut some slack as I figured trying to get the internet right for 1,000 was more important than shipping me my prize. Still, I stayed on it too.

I was really torn between the Cal Expo 93 and the MSG 90 releases. Now if there was a Laguna Seca 88, well...

I'm loving the music, and appreciate the fellowship with you all.

Thanks again to Canyon Critter and 3Phase. I will be away from home and my computer seven days in the next two weeks, and will be looking for your posts to backfill my 30 Days downloads.

I pulled some Cold Rain and Snows to get a sense of date for tomorrow. I am not throwing in first guess for the daily prize, but would love to win a miracle weekly drawing.

could I be first with the correct answer, please?

after the first 5 seconds, I knew the show - it took me longer to locate the venue in the pulldown - it pays to research your subject!

My research also alerted me to the fact that this song really evolved by early 69, with a great melodic bass solo thrown in the middle :)
