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.

i think they should put out 6 hard drives over the next 3 years, each having every show they have in a 5 year period. We get all the shows and they get one last big payday.
I absolutely dug the Alligator...one of my favorite tunes and a well picked version here. The Sugaree from '80 is one of my new faves, and I don't think I'd ever heard that one before. And the classic Shake from yesterday was certainly generous. One can hope for a Scar>Fire, and I think we'll probably see it. Eyes might be nice, too. A MIA Other One would be a big surprise.
One thing I have trouble with is the unfriendly 'chops' rather than quick fadeouts at the end. They probably did that to make them a little tougher to get. Anyone know a good freeware or other program that I can use to tailor these mp3 to have fadeouts and fix those nasty cuts?
Thanks Dead.net for the free download...anxiously waiting to see what's in store upon the conclusion of the promotion...I for one would probably fall for the subscription plan, but it seems not everyone is terribly keen on that...might be a tough nut to crack for most people...make sure to announce the shows ahead of time though...what if 3 of the 4 were post '93 or something?
that is straight forward and has effects such as fade-ins and fade-outs. Only takes a few minutes to download and install. I have used it on several of the downloads this month.
great song! so good!
Please. For tha love of Dog (courtesy of the dyslexic atheist), I'm beggin' ya. STELLA!
P.S. Many Thanks, Again, for all the downloaded Goodness this month.

I'm sure there are other cooler ways to do it. :) And I still need to fit three more days of tracks in there.
Or the old Dire Wolf from my first show on 6/6/70
Personally, I have been listening chronologically and I am very curious about how the last three tunes will fit in. Ultimately, I will do my best to fit these songs into the shows where they belong, even if it means a "composite" tape/CD as I have labeled them in the past when I have some soundboard material and some audience from the same night. Is that sacrilege or creative?
....yes, I DID go into shows hoping they'd bust out Mason's Children. I've always loved it.
Yeah, I love Bird Song and Scarlet->Fire, too......but the Grateful Dead wrote alot more than 30 songs. And Dew is probably out for copyright considerations.
But I'll join one of the popular choruses with three days to go....
WE WANT PHIL!!!!!!
That's what I was getting at in my earlier post. I have them organized by the date they were given to us. I also created a playlist in iTunes where I organized them chronologically. Sort of a trip through time (haha).
