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!

Drums>Space>???

I may have gotten lucky this morning.... I will find out Friday... But if I did, I will list the method... used, which could make the Grateful Dead Jeopardy, more multi-dimensional....

So is it time for Space> ? or Drums>Space>?

Yessssssssssss Drumzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

They've GOT TO HAVE AT LEAST ONE. It would be a heinous omission to not have one. A big MONSTER one. Mark your calendars, they'll save it for last. Somebody needs to light a fire under somebody else and get Infrared Roses II (ULTRAVIOLET ROSES!) made as well.

Now, about "A Jerry Little Christmas": I figure if they set it up for 12 Days of Garcia (at this late date I'm forgetting about a Pure Jerry Xmas release...for now) and they start the party on Dec. 6 (Mon.) then the thirteenth download day (yup, a little Bolty prank there) would be Dec. 18 (Sat.) and leave Christmas week open since everybody will be busy traveling and stuff.

Contest? OK. Name the show and get your pick of a Jerry release, and just have one big winner for the whole thing - All Good Things seems reasonable.

Brilliant!

songs i'd love to hear...

i've kinda given up on the long scarlet-fire, etc, so i've thought of what shorter stuff i'd like. i'd like the rarer stuff, like a late electric race is on or a reuben and cherise. how bout a stagger lee, or a dupree's? from an atlanta 94 show, the last dark star show, which also had the liberty from so many roads, jerry does a beautiful stella that doesnt segue into sugar mags, it ends beautifully, then they tune up, then launch into sugar mags. i'd love to hear the dew from hershey...

I thought I would ask that since you had your hip done and missed some music, the easywindb and hesgone b are now missing, I belive I can email them to you they are smaller than 25mbs. Send me a message with your email and I will try to send them to you tonight or tommrow if you need them

hmmm

Although I am far from sure, I would guess the notes at the end to be hints of Queen Jane, which means this can only be 1 show.

What's with the embedded Flash-rant? Sure, it's funny in a pathetic way but I can't place the Date/Venue of the song, it makes the page load slow and messes up the scrolling. And where is the free(B) version?



Scott "CommanderBeavis": You're welcome, glad you caught up and I hope you're recovering well! I had to have five teeth pulled yesterday; feeling no pain today but I don't even want to imagine a hip replacement. Get well soon!

Guess for Tomorrow

Corrina was my first guess, but upon Furthur review, I realize it will clearly be Jack Straw,

If it's really Jack Straw...

...I hope it's one of the ripping versions from 1977 or 1978. If it's Corinna, um, I, ah, don't care as much. ;-)

Corrina includes Hart.

Jack Straw or Sugar Magnolia according to this page:

Yeah. My Deadbase says it includes Hart, too. If it's Sugar Mags., I hope it's one of the rippin' versions from '72. Yesh.

Revised Guess

I thought Bobby added the Sunshine Daydream part, but I've always thought of Sugar Magnolia as a Robert Hunter song.
Hunter and Weir wrote Sugar Magnolia, so your perception may be more correct. I guess the part about Bill Graham will be supplied with the answer tomorrow. I found no mention of Mickey Hart being an author of Corrina on this site's database. Thanks for keeping me on my toes.

I'll pick Jack...

...betting that TPTB are saving Sugar Magnolia until later in the contest. I wonder what the penultimate tune will be (if its not a Drums/Space)?

"Corinna" is credited to Hunter/Weir/Hart on the Evening Moods disc. Be careful about taking the dead.net site info on songs as gospel, there's a few errors/omissions scattered around there. They've got the music/lyrics credits backwards on Caboose.

Last song in the contest, duh.

"And We Bid You Goodnight", called "Traditional" so maybe not copyright restricted. I'd be happy and not surprised with Box of Rain too (but please, not the last show).

About time for a Tennessee Jed too, eh?

jack straw

I'd love a smoking mid-'80's Jack Straw, circa 84-85.... This era is consistently passed over for release, and thus far no exception for our fine contest.

This So Many Roads overtakes the one on the box ~ beautiful notes from Jerry on the finale. Really nice mix on the recording, too.

Awesome version

Great song, great reading, great venue. Finally got one right! I'm glad it was with one of my favorite Jerry tunes and easily my favorite "new" song. Thanks deadnet for not dropping Samba on us!!!

Most excellent jam......

....thanks, Critter!

If I'm hearing the song after So Many Roads correctly, there are actually three choices. I've still got a lentil dish to make for a work potluck in the morning, so instead of perusing the Archive I took a chance. One out of three. Shell game.
Except the odds are stacked in your favor, because you get So Many Roads no matter what.

weird

I just downloaded this song, and when I looked at it in "my music" on desktop, it added a picture all by itself, it's a steal yuor face in done in a light red ink on a brown paper all by itself, I have not had this occur with any other of these downloads, did anybody else get this on their file?

If you can identify the song that follows So Many Roads, based on the tuning, you are left with only two choices. Good Luck!

Thanks for the music-

Kept refreshing, not posted until 11:58, Guessed fast, and then posted, but got kicked of before I saw the Thank you- just guessed again, and it took it so I guess my 12:01 submission didn't count-

Oh well, listening deeper I think I was wrong anyway.

I signed it right at 11 CST, saw it, searched for it, and unfortunately the spinning wait image just sat there after I posted my (correct) response. By now it was 11:05, I refreshed, signed back in, and put my response in again- to which a "thank you" registered. I hope I get it! :)

was able to post my guess, but I am sure it is too late....

This is classic 94 folks (IMO), and yes the key is for the song tuning at the end...there is only one 94 show with that combo
