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!

Check out the Charlie Miller aud of this show!

I listen to the Shakedown, find out the date, check my list of tapes and discover that I do not have this show. So I go on archive and find a fantastic recording of a very hot show. It's been like this all month long and I'm on Dead overload! Thank you for highlighting so much early 80's material.

Success!

Took several tries but I finally got the whole 13:20. At least I got to hear the stream right off the bat - enough to make a guess and to get my day going on the right foot. Nothing like a strong cup of coffee and bopping Shakedown to get the blood going...

if you listen

you can even hear what song they are going into. That might be a way for many to narrow it down granted you have the right time frame pinpointed. Good luck everyone! Is this Thanksgiving or what?

early '80s Shakedown

Love these versions! The vast majority of the time it was a set opener. If it's followed by "-> Lost Sailor" that tells us likely 2nd set. This particular Shakedown features some feisty back and forth between Jerry and Brent.

4-6-82 Philly fits the bill. We shall see! (doubt I'm the first today, but what's new? ;)

A Fitting Selection

This rendition of "Shakedown Street" (31,273KB, 13:20 duration) is a fitting selection, given recent events. This is a stone-cold classic show from an erstwhile venue that saw many legendary events. I will miss it.

Thanks to Scott/3Phase for the dropbox. Celebrating Thanksgiving took precedence over computer access. "Esau" from Spring '84 is prime vintage material. Thank you, Scott, for making yesterday's download available.

I echo cbs73's comments from yesterday about the difficulty of reaching those who award and send out the daily prizes. My experience has been like Chinese algebra: confusing, hydra-headed anfractuosity; conflicting e-mails; no follow-through, accountability, or resolution. Unfortunately, this is not the first time since the outsourcing from San Rafael to Burbank and from Charlottesville to Bangalore that I've had difficulties. I've given up all hope of ever receiving my Road Trips prize. Too bad this interesting and occasionally inspiring contest has been spoiled by nonfeasance.

Best to all,

Could be TLMD, the clue is vague enough I guess...

...since TLMD didn't get released when it was first recorded, and So Many Roads isn't really a "studio album", but the clue didn't say "Grateful Dead studio album". Would make more sense I guess since the "Garcia" version of "Mason's" is just Jerry and Billy, and that first studio "Mason's" wasn't a complete recording. There's a buttload of songs I'd rather see than either of them, honestly, but I guess that's just incentive to buy other shows whenever das RhinoFuhrer blesses us with a release.

Love a funky Shakedown Street!!!!

So happy, I'm loving it and figured out the show with my Deadbase, the tuning at the start, the lead-in to Lost Sailor and a couple friendly clues from y'all. Shakedown Street the album was what really got me started as a deadhead, before I went to any shows or started tape trading. I got more and more interested each time I met deadheads and listened to thier tapes. When I heard Europe '72 at a party and we were all dancing around these folks living room I knew I had to hop on the bus. We have really gotten some special gems this month, Thank You.

To Lay Me Down

I figured they meant that the song never appeared on a GD studio album, although it was recorded by the Dead in 1970(per the So Many Roads set)...We'll see. I'd much rather a TLMD than a Mason's Children...

And thank you.

And I forgot to add: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! This is such a treat. Even when the song, or the era, isn't my favorite, this is soooo sweet. And I have a feeling that I will revisit some things that I would otherwise not hear very often - a lot.

Pigeon Dance and a Game Suggestion

Well, I don't know if I'm just doing a pigeon dance in a Skinner box, but after a medley of partial and zero bite downloads here's how I finally managed to get a full download of 30.5mb and 13min 21sec. First I cleared my browser history and deleted the partial downloads from my downloaded files folder. Then to be on the safe side instead of opening up Safari (default mac internet browser) like I usually do I tried using Firefox instead. When I tried to download from the first page I still got 0 bytes, but then when I tried the link from one of the later pages of comments I got the full file.

By the way, as the days of November are coming to a close, I'd like to propose a little game. I've seen some people posting songs they'd like to hear or hope to hear in the remaining days, but that's usually as far as the predicting goes. I think it would be fun to throw down blind guesses, pre-facebook clue of predictions of song, venue, and date.

Now as far as tomorrow goes I'm stumped, but in the spirit of random guessing I'm going with The Golden Road, Winterland, 3/18/67; however, I'm calling it for the last day. I'm betting all the marbles that on the 30th we're going to hear Jerry sing "last muddy river" at Soldier Field on 7/9/95.

there's only four possibilities

Shakedown segued into Lost Sailor just four times between December 1981 and September 1982.... Not so difficult to work out which one this is.

It's gotta be 79. You can

It's gotta be 79. You can still hear donna in the background and shakedown didnt even come out until 78, and it does sound pretty 80s, but donna wasnt around then.

Of course

Shakedown street, on black friday. I should've picked up on
that. For those who say they hear Donna, listen again. That's
Brent for sure. I say early to mid 80's. Always a lot of fun to
try and guess. Thanks again for all the great music.
