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!

Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free

Agree that 30 tracks at the end of November will make a nice mix and the discs can be given as stocking stuffers for holidays or to enjoy random selections.

Ok, I give up.. WHERE's the actual download link again?

I've been computer programmer for 20+ years now, so I'd like to think I know my way around computers and most software, but here, I am stumped! Where the heck is the actual "click this to download the song" link?! Anyone? Bueler? Bueler?

dead.net: clunky!

For a community that was active on the The Well all the back to square one, it seems strange and a big pain in the @ss that the Dead's website is from the flintstones era. Almost nothing ever works right the first time. My password and userid fail about a quarter of the time. And the e-commerce is worse than bad, though it has improved. So no pop-ups, downloads, no 30 Days here, just silence and early 90s era "browsing". There's a legacy, a fan base, and a vault, and along with all that comes a brand. Do the band members check up on this stuff, because overall the site has not improved materially with Rhino's involvement.

Is there any way to download the tracks that I missed, namely Althea? I may just be over looking it but I can't seem to find it. Did I just miss out?

Fix the download please

From the Facebook update: "CLUE: Tomorrow's 30 DAYS OF DEAD track is one of the Grateful Dead's first extended-improvisation songs written with Robert Hunter's lyrics. It will be available as a free download at 12pm EST/9am PST tomorrow (make sure to get "New Speedway Boogie" before then!) Http://dead.net/30days"

According to this the previous days track should still be available. It sure doesn't look like it is. Or it isn't working. Maybe it gets fixed and we get 31 Days of the Dead? :-)

So the files will only be available for a short period?

That's a pity. That pretty much precludes me from downloading it since I'll either be asleep or at work while it's online. Being excluded from the competition (and every single shipping deal) is frustrating but being "timezoned" out of even getting the track (unless I'm willing to breach my employer's internet policy for the umpteenth time and risk being fired) is very disappointing. I think this is a great promotion and feature but if I can't use it and am not allowed to enter, it's just annoying.

Surely the files can be hosted for an entire 24 hour period??? I've bought a lot of stuff from this website, despite living in a different continent (yes - there are other countries) so it seems a bit harsh to make it difficult/impossible for me (and lots of other people) to participate.

Yeah, the page(s) appear(s)

Yeah, the page(s) appear(s) to be broken. Using the calendar widget in the upper right called the "Archive" doesn't allow me to find or download yesterday's song.

...Although now that I've read a few others' comments, this appears to be by design. Perhaps I'm not supposed to be able to download yesterday's song today.

I guess I need to look for each tune around 11am CST each and every day.

Good luck to all! (Ain't no way I'm gonna be able to identify these tracks down to the exact day...)

I agree with CosmicBadger

"Equipment malfunctions, false starts, frustrating teases, long periods of dead air, assurances that they will get it just exactly right Sound familiar?"

It's like every time this site offers something they have to reinvent how to use the internet. Any regular online storefront that operated this poorly would go out of business. Not sure if this shows just how "deadicated" we deadheads are, or what gluttons for punishment.

But kudos for attempting to offer some sweet, free tunes, too bad you couldn't work out the bugs first. And IMHO 320Kbps is a sufficient quality. But some people like to complain even when offered something for free.

You'll see it soon, have patience...but until then you can listen to David L's Taper's Section and hear some nice stuff straight from the vault. Every Monday he puts on new candy for your listening pleasure.

Re: clunky!

You're right- The Rolling Stones had the top grossing tour, A Bigger Bang $558,255,524. Total GD earnings were probably around $162,000,000. OK, I cut 'em a break for the website. After all, they've given it to use for free their whole lives. God Bless the Grateful Dead.

Where are the Downloads

Hmmm... May not be completely awake but there doesn't seem to be any link to the Download or anything else in this 30 Days offering.
The tunes are posted for a day and disappear ?
Only a "suit" could devise such nonsense.
Yes... Corporate DEAD has been extremely generous (Tapers Section) but this offer seem convoluted and designed to sell... as if I needed any assistance to spend on GD material.
