30 Days Of Dead - November 20th

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 Better Than The Grateful Dead Live!!!

yetay, This has to be, "The Greatest Story ever Told". We have 22 Dead songs so far, 23 in a few hours. Yet Furthur we go, we all miss and love, Jerry. But you know he is smiling seeing what he created just by making music with the boys. We have to be the biggest Family where "Love Is Real Not Fade Away". I am Proud to be a DEAD HEAD!!! Thank you, yetay

great version - where's that crazy 20 second outro?

I guess they didn't consider it part of the song? it took a good 20 minutes to download but I got it after a few failed attempts of zero. i put my guess in around 12:15, before downloading, kept getting logged out so not sure if it worked but I got the "Thanks" message.

Furthur tonight - if I close my eyes it's the closest thing to the good old days out there

thanks DeadNet and happy Saturday to all

...the site may be experiencing some end of the week weariness - and lot of duplicate comments from folks hitting "post" repeatedly LOL.

With all the traffic over the last few weeks I'm thinking there's some cables with melted insulation.

Alligator In The Rain

A new data drive I bought to replace the aging system drive threw a temper tantrum and started to rant in the event log yesterday so I had to unplug it. Today I'm back to one drive and I get to ride to the store in the rain to pick up another new drive under warranty and, hopefully, transfer everything over this afternoon. Whee! See you later! (B-)

When you push the button isn't when the post gets to the servers

It's probably a long way from where you are to where the servers are, and those packets may have taken a wrong turn at bad router in Albuquerque. The same logic applies to the initial posting of the new day's song from appearing on your webpage, somebody else might see it before you do. It's likely only a few seconds but can be longer, and there may be a lot of people sending in the correct answer at the same time. There's a pretty healthy random factor involved with getting the first correct answer in, I think. Does the confirmation message confirm that your answers have been received, or only that your answer has been sent?

I've answered correctly in a minute and by the time it said 'thank you' someone had already posted that they got the answer.
I think if you don't get it in the first 12-15 seconds you aren't even in the top 10.

Just now hearing this at 9:50 pm in the Mountain time zone, so no guess today, but what a killer version of Alligator! I'm guessing 69-70, but looking forward to finding out the actual date so I can check out the rest of the show.

I know we are all excited BUT

Hey all let's get patient. I know everyone can not get the tune the minute it is available but we are getting this for FREE and it is wonderful. Complaining about not being able to get the new tune the minute it is available doesn't help. :)

this is fun!

What a great time I'm having trying to guess these daily doses of Dead! I've never done so much delving into the far reaches of the setlist archive in all my life. I've got to hand it to you all, you know your stuff! And you're fast too! I've had 4 correct guesses now, but I'm always too late. Alas, it's not a big deal; what's truly important here is that we are having fun with it and celebrating the legacy that the Grateful Dead have left us over 30 years.

Keep on Truckin' on!
