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!
                                                   - Less Info
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!

New Speedway Boogie followup

I was correct, I was missing about 3 minutes of the end of the song.
FYI links to the first four downloads are posted in one of the comments for day four, that would be November 4th. :P
Peace

Same submission problem

Imagine my surprise. I knew the show (Fillmore East 9-20-70), but had the same submission problem as others. Ah well, it is still a fun game and test my skill trying to hear which Dead (or is that dead) keybordist is playing.

possible glitch?

So...the contest/giveaway seems pretty cool. Of course, if we could hear a little of the song before or after it would be a lot easier to look 'em up in the old Deadbase. Just kidding!!! The fun is in guessing, right?
Seriously, though. I tried clicking on the "select date & venue" and all it gave me was the beginning (alphabetically - A) of the venue list and then I couldn't scroll down or choose a date or anything.
Also, I am already registered on this site, but it seems like you have to log-in separately for the 30 days of November deal.
I hope y'all can get this straightened out.
As always, thanks for the music!!

Sun is just now peeking up on the eastern skyline

Didn't Hornsby sing a song about the skyline?

Check www.archive.org for a New Speedway Boogie from 1970: the one above does not have a "listen" function. Maybe David L will archive the daily selections as a yet-to-be invented feature?

Please someone help and send me the link to the proper page?

It is 100% September 20th, 1970 - Fillmore East, New York, NY.

I've tried a few times to put in my answer but it says I've already done it - which I haven't...

Cool idea - but a few kinks to work out...

Entry follow up

I just went to check, worried the site gremlins prevented my time stamped message to admin might not have gone through - but it did.

When I entered my submission New York Fillmore East Sep 20, 1970, there were only two comments.

It took me awhile to find, then respond to the welcome 9:20 am message I got for registering to enter the contest. My reply, to admin, time stamped 9:59 obviously came after my entry submission.

After entering, having my submission denied, refreshing, resigning in, and then replying by message, I found JoeCrowe had followed up, much as I had, but using the comment section instead of message reply to admin.

Reasonably confident we are both correct, and unsure whether first submission can be determined, today might be a great day to announce two winners.

Just sayin'.

Thanks everyone!

Can't believe people are actually THANKING you for throwing us a bone....I'm gettin' too old for this crap.....why not just release ALL 30 SHOWS for download and REALLY make 2010 a banner year ( and 320K is hardly high quality)

Joe Crow is right. I guessed

Joe Crow is right. I guessed the date immediately upon hearing it- the last time the Dead ever played it. I'm listening to both back to back now. Archive.org lists it with only one star, but what do they know- this is a classic.

For all countries !!!!!!!!!!!!

It's a shame it is only for residents of the United States ... so ... My guess is FILLMORE EAST, SEPTEMBER 20, 1970.

Greetings to all deadheads for everyone !!!!!!!!

Ship Of Fools

I think everyone is very Grateful and appreciative about the fabulous New Speedway download that I'm pretty darn sure is from the April run at the Filmore! It rules and sounds great and i have no complaints! But this is music, and the quality of the music matters big time when it comes to The Grateful Dead. The boys were always REALLY into the technical side of music reproduction. That's why we get every release in HDCD. Its Bear Owsley's legacy. Celebrate it. Bring on uncompressed 96/24 FLAC's. Old Grateful Dead afficianatos will buy them up like those brownies I used to buy at the Kaiser..........

I can't even find where you can download and listen to the song. Shouldn't there be a download link on this page somewhere, because I've looked everywhere with no luck?
