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.

I don't wanna waste space being redundant , but I'm in a challenged family scenario for any/all holidays , as a caregiver . This month's contest sure HAS BEEN SWEET ! And thank you (again ! ) for a real good time ! Be careful travelers-it's a kooky weekend for driving peace gravy + sweet potato pie !
Awsum turkey CC
It's been a great selection of tunes,Be patience with your DL I've got them all sometmes it might take a couple times just watch the time lenght and the MB
Thanks for music to everybody involved It's been a great month so far nothing but Dead playing at my House
"Going Down The Road" Al & Lisa
This just gets better!
I reckon blackclouds is right, that sounds like Bruce H, so must be early '90s, earlier than the very late Jerry Guitar sound from '94- '95
Three tracks in one.... I've lost count but with the B versions and double trackers we must be well past thirty numbers already!
God Bless the Good Ole Grateful Dead!
Just opened the site and saw I'm the weekly winner! My wife and kids were laughing at me dancing around the living room. Thanks to all for this promotion.
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
This just makes my Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale taste that much better!
The Nuthatch sed:
"Beautiful playing throughout, and I agree Jerry sounds great here.
Happy Thanksgiving, all, and safe travels if you're goin' anywheres...
May the four winds blow you safely home...."
I second the sentiment - Happy Thanksgiving and definitely rely on the four winds' blowing, and be safe about it.
If you happen to be missing a few songs from this month's awesome dose of free Dead tunes, (THANKS Dead.net!), there are a couple of places to get them - look for Canyon Critter's and 3Phase's posts on this forum, or go here to pick them up:
Everyone have a happy and Grateful Thanksgiving!
Without love in the dream it will never come true
That's as specific as I'm able to get.
Wife gets to guess what the miracle will be each night. She's stuck on Eyes of the World. Waiting.....
Enjoy your prize...and your ale...tehe...
Happy Thanksgiving and Grateful THANKS to DEAD NET for the free tunes.
It was crazy at the DR selling free range organic turkeys maybe almost 100 tonight Monday and Tuesday were close to 150 total wow gonna bring the turkey up to 150 degrees and then smoke it low with a thin wisp of blue hickory smoke and do a beer mop It will taste like this 3 set GD songs sound! ENJOY No Violence Just love baby
Now go feed those hogs before they worry themselves into anemia
H>S>F with beautiful playing by the band in thier later era, what a great ride on the bus! Now I hope for a Foolish Heart.
Thank you to all at dead.net and CC for your great artwort contributious.
So ever grateful and thankful for all the free tunes! A great big thanks to Dead net and all the kind folks like CC that keep the positive vibes flowing. It feels great to listen to Jerry like it's new again! The Grateful Dead has always been a serious mood shifter for me, instant happiness!!!! I'm actually burning these as gifts for all my Deadhead friend for Christmas. Easy way to spread the love!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!
CLUE for tomorrow's track: This Weir/Barlow composition was recorded in the studio, but was not released on CD or vinyl LP
One posted that he was going to have to think about it
#30DAYSOFDEAD clue for tomorrow's track! This Weir/Barlow composition was recorded in the studio, but was not released on CD or vinyl LP.
...all appear on the remastered reissues of the CDs, and to me that counts as "released" whether the song was on the original issue or not. Like "Brother Esau" was the b-side of the Touch of Grey single, and on the cassette but not the CD or LP of In The Dark, but it did get included on the reissue CD.
Man, only six spots left. Wonder what awesome tunes aren't gonna make the cut?
Good guess Helena, that one was stumping me. Guess Im as clueless as the FB crowd.
...and I can see his/her twisted mind thinking "I'll say 'not released' when I mean 'not released with the rest of the album even though it was a b-side single and it appears on the original cassette and by the way the remastered reissue doesn't count so nyah nyah nyah" LOL. A bunch of the FB people have picked it out. I didn't realize it wasn't on the original CD release, I first heard the album on cassette back in the day, and the first time I heard the whole CD was the reissue with all the bonus stuff.
There's also a song "Gentlemen, Start Your Engines" that somebody on FB called out. I had never heard of it, it doesn't even show on Bobby's page here at the dead.net site but I found it on the Annotated site. It was recorded as a demo for In the Dark I think they said but was only performed a couple of times. Not to sound ungrateful but I wouldn't be overjoyed if it was that one. Too many grrrrrrrrrrreat songs are gonna be missed as it is.
Man, we're not gonna get the most magical top secret Uber-Drumz/Space. Drat.
Gentlemen Start Your Engines appeared on So Many Roads. It's a Mydland/Barlow song anyway.
The Annotated Grateful Dead lyrics site credits Barlow. Lemme check the book version...ah, it's corrected to Mydland in the book. That site is unkempt, doesn't look like its' been updated in years and there are several errors on the website that are corrected in the book.
I'm just too lazy to get up and waddle over to the bookshelf or the CD rack, although I had no idea the song was on SMR - I've listened to it all the way through maybe twice, have no memory of that song though. D'oh.
I just missed it when I read the article. *Sigh*.
Like so many others, I'll be away from the internet for the next few days. I hope someone will be posting links after the fact. I'm so happy to see so many Deadheads back in this forum doing what only we can and do best - share the love. Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels to all!
I thought theyd go bigger for the final week. And starting w/ todays HSF I thought I was right. Anway, assuming Thanksgiving gives us Brother Esau, here in no particular order, are my final five.
3-Thats It For the Other One
4-Eyes of the World
5-Uncle Johns Band
Happy Thanksgiving all. Grateful for the Dead and much more here.
please, please, be right on your final five!!
Mountains of the Moon, One More Saturday Night, We Bid You Goodnight, Hell in a Bucket (!), Alabama Getaway (!!), sheesh the list is endless.
One thing we have learned for sure: copyrights SUCK lmao. Lot of good tunage couldn't get posted because of the copyrights. We deserve a rockin' Pig rap on "Schoolgirl", a magical "Lucy", heck even Dylan said Jerry was the best interpreter of Dylan songs.
I've got to get a new CD player, maybe Jerry Claus will bring me one this year :D
I love Brother Esau, not sure why Bob put it away so abruptly. I always thought of it as the latter-day Greatest Story. (Just as I thought of Stagger Lee as a latter-, or at least later-, day Dupree's.)
I'm probably in the minority, but I think Esau should've opened In the Dark, followed by Touch of Grey. Had Touch been recorded with its signature power chords that were bafflingly stripped from the studio version, that would be a different story.... But as recorded, I think Esau was one of the album's strongest performances, and criminally left off (for some marketing ploy, as I recall, to sell more cassettes, as they were a dying medium?).
Soapboxing aside, there's that short-lived Little Star song by Weir (and presumably Barlow?), as well ~ though if that was ever recorded in the studio, it'd be a surprise.
I remember Gentlemen Start well, because I happened to catch one of its two performances. I thought it was hot and preferred it to two of the three Brent tunes that made it onto the album ~ though it's certainly one of the darker ones from our favorite keyboard-playing soldier of the night.
Here's to shadow-boxing the Apocalypse, and watering the Land.
Why did that happen twice?
That happens when you click go again...we all do it. As far as shows, I've not checked off half of them on here....there were probably only 4 total that I missed due to Baseball from 89-95 pretty much anywhere near the bay area. But, I never checked em all. But that's cool, cuz there is so many shows that people I meet down the road have been to as well, you know.
I loved CalExpo. It was like seeing them play at a softball bark! Such a contrast to 80k at Buckeye Lake or Highgate.
The west was always fun. I spent a lot of time driving across the desert.
I'm out east right now with family in the ATL...
and holy S%*& it's late!
I got'a go to bed! I'll be face down in the mashed potatoes by dinner.
Thanks for giving the thanks and giving
90s.man said I should listen to 12/11/94.
I took his advice and found it on the archive:
I got through set one before I had to switch to holiday mode, but I will certainly be finishing the show as soon as I can. My only gripe so far is that Vince's voice is too loud (to my ears) in the mix. Musically tho, it's a lot of fun. H>S>F is always a welcome show opener (not to mention HC Sunshine in set 2). This reminds me of those August '93 shows.
I hope you had a blast at the show.
The comments on the archive say some good things about this version of Days Between that has my interest piqued. Thanks for the recommendation. And happy holidays to all.
It's just too dame late.
I'm nodding out trying to decipher the FB clue.
To All My Brothers & Sisters out there...
Take time out to enjoy the the people you'll be hanging with, the food and especially the MUSIC!!!!
PEACE to all!
and I bid you good day!
Hey now!! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Be Grateful!!!!!
I'd like to thank the folks at GD HQ for this great November and all the downloads. Thanks to Critter and all the other folks for providing a miracle when things were slow.
Thanks to Bob and Phil and Furthur for bopping through the Midwest (I'll never take you boys for granted again!).
Thanks for the rain we are now getting that we haven't had since July (now causing flood warnings)......but...."the skies are clearing over Terre Haute!" (Hey race fans!)
Everyone have a grate day! Be careful out there!
thanks dead net for the love and the free tunes, I want to appoligize for any negativity on my part ie not being able to get the download, this is wonderful and the people here are to be congratulated for their efforts in getting this thing to work at all.
As far as responses, "whats wrong with gate crashers anyway?" I think that statement speaks for itself. my computer is just fine, thank you and I'm not even trying to win these free cd's, just got frustrated and really wanted to at least hear the tunes, couldn't even stream them... it's like I was in a loop and couldn't get this site to work at all, but now all seems to be working fine, way to go tech heads thanks again deadnet and Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Happy T-day people!
Thanks for the sweat music!
Got'a get packed and up the road to grandma's house.
I won't be back online till late night again. No guessing for me today.
Esau; got'a be Esau right? The Clue must be about the 45 and the Cassette. The reissue would technically be HDCD, right? Then no CD or LP.
I'll buy myself a Coke if I'm right. Actually, I'm going to drink a Coke now anyway. I'm about to fall asleep.
I loved Vince just like I loved Brent and have tried to collect every show from the '89-91 era, but 5-5-91 is one show without available audience copies. In steps 30 Days of the Dead with a gem from a show that is missing from my collection! Dig the samba beat during Slipknot. Now, if we're making suggestions, Vince's first two shows from 9-7/8-90 are worthy releases. Jerry's introduction of the new keyboard player after Birdsong is very emotional, and the Eyes from the next night is my favorite post '74 version. Seriously.
Happy Thanksgiving, Dead.netsters both on stage and behind the electronic curtains. Enjoy the time with your families and eat lots of goodies. Turkey, *real* turkey not one of those tofu things...I mean, I know it's an animal and all but c'mon, think about it. What Would Jerry Do?
LMAO. Cheers, and enjoy!
We are all in this together.
May GOD Bless us all.
And keep al travelers safe
Forgive me for my short comings.
Whew what a list.
A Big Hug and thanks to those working @DEADNET.
