30 Days Of Dead - November 19th

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!

Trying to narrow it down

This is a tough one. It's got an East Coast vibe-- listen to the crowd. Bobby sounds wasted. It's got the pace and guitar work of late 70 or 71 after the winter shows, where "Sugar Mag" seems to be played slower. Most '71 versions time out longer than this one. This is lots of fun. I should be doing other things.

A and B

Versions are because originally the wonderful tech dudes/dudettes here @ Dead.Net did an oops and posted the wrong song for the day. So, technically they have not been released yet, and we don't know if they are gonna release the other versions either. But since they aren't official we aren't posting them (if they are even there).

Hope that helps.

Arrgh so close!

I know I got the right show, but went for the wrong year at first like many I'm betting. Anyway, I own the show on tape but WITHOUT that intro so awesome pick!

The intro on your tape..

Is at the end of the song before it...I believe that's the way it is on archive too.

A 'BIG' thank you to kutsavi for the excellent tip. I had missed some of the tracks, but now, the collection is up to date.... Thanx Again... Greetings from North of Ireland!!!

not so hard...

... it's a set opener, it's east coast (from Bobby's reaction to the "barking orders"), the length and the sound place it clearly in late 1970/early 1971. And if you're still stuck, then Bobby's intro is a real give-away. So if you haven't got the show on tape, or you've never heard it, then get streaming on archive and you'll get it in no time at all. Love this 30 Days Of Dead, how about making it 365 Days Of Dead next year... and opening up the competition to non-US residents (we'll pay the extra postage for prizes if we win!)

My Guess

9-18-1970 Fillmore East

Deadbase lists a Sugar Mags opener, but the audio on Archive does not include the tune. I'll have to dig up my tape to make sure.

Peace -

Love reading the comments!

As much as I love the music and its availability, half the fun here is reading the comments from fans old and new about the song and their detective work in determining what is the correct show.

Roger Waters Sunday! Can't wait to see The Wall.

Great weekend to all.
