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.

To me, it really is the ultimate lost Dead tune. One last rare, easy one I guess.

Thanks people!

See here how everythin’, lead up to this day . . .

I’ve enjoyed all the daily comments, information, advice, insights, bickering, etc. It’s a very big family. A further gift of music is a great way to keep the community connected. Herein lies a phantom cyber sea for all us phantom ships to sail upon.
I burst out laughing at the person who admitted they really ought to be doing something else, like being more productive or something, BUT hey, me too, and yet I agreed with him; this is what it’s all about…bein’ here, getting the all the tracks and playing the game and WOW, it is time well spent. What a treat.
Also, I agreed with the recognition given awhile back to the genius of Brent. I would love to hear “JUST A LITTLE LIGHT”. There’s a touching video of him playing this tune with candles on the piano and his daughter sitting next to him on the bench. And it could be a beautiful homage to both the band and the fans.
Preferably though, as a final tune for the 30 days, far more so than And We Bid you Goodnight, would be the poignant “DAYS BETWEEN”. I know there are a few suitable unreleased renditions circulating and every time I hear Jerry’s plaintive dirge-like delivery I cry the tears of tremendous loss and the joyous bliss of knowing he gave the best he had to give. They all did. How much we’ll never know.
Thanks to all involved for sharing the music; from the band members to the up loaders, from the downloaders to the just plain loaded; from the washed to the un-washed; from the haves to the have-mores. A ga-ga-zillion thanks. Eternally Gratefully Deadicated . . .

Yeah, I'm in this time. There just aren't that many Masons to choose from, I found it early in the day, and there's a nice fat internal clue for those who are paying attention so best of luck, everyone! Gee, what're we all going to do NEXT month???

was hoping for a longer version...

like the Hollywood FL show from 12.28.69 - never heard that show before last night :)

The Dark Star from that date is totally insane, as one reviewer commented, 'it contains sounds you've never heard before'

This is one of the acoustic/electric hybrid versions of this Workingman’s Dead classic. Although not residing in the Grateful Dead’s master tape collection, this was drawn from the tapes recorded by the Fillmore East crew.

So browsing through the store...

...I noticed that some of the Dick's Picks series appeared to be sold out, including DP4 that is being advertised up there - although the direct link up there does work, when I try to find it by clicking through the store it's not there.

I wonder if this means that all four View from the Vault DVDs are also still available? The individual DVDs show up as "also available" on the page for each soundtrack but *not* on the page for "DVD/Vinyl".

Guess I'll have to call customer service first to make sure, I've had a couple of "disappointments".

Wow, 3 days left...

and a bazillion songs to choose from. So for the 30th is it Brokedown Pal, Baby Blue, US Blues? How many dozen other closers are there?

To have but just one of these...

Scarlet Bagonias, Fire on the Mountain, Quinn the Eskimo, Eyes of the World or Mama Tried... Would make everything complete for me! But anything you choose is fantastic to me, this has been such a great trip threw live performances. "Thank you so much!"

Cover songs NYET.

No "midnight hour"s, no "baby blue"s, no other cover songs - those would be covered by copyrights.

Fun in the Store, continued...

So as I delve furthur into the bowels of the store I happened to be looking through the FAQ where I noticed this:

"Q: If I purchase the Road Trips 2011 subscription, would I be able to return it for a refund?
A: Purchase of this subscription is non-refundable. We apologize for the inconvenience."

Anybody know what a "Road Trips subscription" is?

(No "mama tried"s, no "Quinn"s...)

Road Trips Subscription

I was listening to Tales from the Golden Road last Sunday, and the guy who runs the website, Mark Pinckus(sp?), was on. He talked about the ability(starting in December) to pre-purchase all four Road Trips that will be released next year. You would get the Road Trips as they come out, but the benefit of pre-purchasing would be that you would receive a special bonus disc unavailable to anyone but those who purchase this package...

What a great song! Abrupt ending, but I think I got it all. I got
10.8mb, at 4:45. I can't thank everyone involved enough, for all
these great presents. Whatever chooses, to finish
this fantastic month, will be alright with me. Peace.

December 1

We'll have to come back in December to verify our selection from November 30th. Hopefully we'll get an extra special treat (perhaps access to download one of these entire shows? If we did receive access, which show would it be?) to help keep the tunes flowing until the end of the year.

Thanks to all for making this possible

I've always noticed...

...this site desperately needs some clerical attention. Misspellings, 'dead links', etc. - Notice on the release info. for some of the disc sets in the store it often times doesn't even list the song details...the Shows and Lyrics section is an incomplete mess (can't someone just look at deadbase?) it's liable to drive someone nuts...stepping down from the soapbox...there, I'm off...tehe...

LMAO a "bonus disc"?

You're kidding, right? After all the griping about "bonus discs" on preorders and the subsequent removal of said bonus discs, the solution is "if you order a bunch of Road Trips all at once, sight unseen, THEN you get a bonus disc?"

Is there somewhere I can hear this interview, or was it one of those "pay for radio" shows?

Pincus is Das RhinoFuhrer, more accurately "Warner Strategic Marketing's Vice President of Strategic Marketing & Custom Products" (at least that used to be his big-ass title).

Setlists or One Long Show?

While I sit here watching Ohio State beat up on "that school up north," I wonder...
How are you gonna arrange these fine cuts? Right now, I've got them by how they were given to us. I saw another person post that they were arranging them according to the date when they were recorded. I was also thinking that you could do a two or three-day run with two sets per day and create virtual "setlists" (boy, would that concept generate interesting debate!).
What are you gonna do?

subscription idea

If its true why come up with ways to exclude people from getting the music? Why commit to unreleased unknown recordings that I might not want or need. Most of the time I only have enough money to buy the release at the time its released. They finally got the last few of these releases right by just making them 3 disc sets available now and in the future as the same set as it was when its released. Bad idea if its true boooooo. oh yeah go Ohio St!

A Year of Road Trips

I would be very hesitant to order 4 Road Trips if I did not know the dates beforehand. I'm guessing most others would be wary also. Maybe they will tell us all four of the dates before ordering.
