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.

Acoustic encore to an electric set.......nice!!
What I want to know is,
Where does the time go?
Peace luv and all that is organic.
May there be light where there was once none!
May there be music where there was once silence!!
...and I'll personally take advantage of the list you've compiled!
Here beside the rising tide *-*
Canyon Critter, Thanks for the great pictures. The last 2 with moving images are really cool. I am using the camping one as my desktop background with flickering fire and all.
I don't think the acoustic list you posted will help for today's Uncle John's Band. Today's is an acoustic encore to an electric show. I do not see the show in the list or in the linked articles.
Hahaha. Having received the mail regarding the subscription, I assumed (on the basis of past experiences here) that free shipping would mean free shipping within the US and standard shipping less the cost of standard US shipping to the rest of the planet. Having seen a few posts suggesting otherwise, I decided to check it out for myself. Firstly the $95.50 price for the next four RT's is pretty much the price of current RT's x4. Now they cost $23.98, which would be $95.92, so you save 42 cents by taking the subscription. Wow. As regards the shipping, to me here in the Netherlands, the quoted prices were $180.11 (Standard) and $89.70 (Rush). Obviously the standard shipping rate is just a bad joke, but even the rush rate is significantly more than the cheapest rate for four individual RT's. It is stated that "Due to the weight of your order, Rush shipping, via UPS, may be less expensive than our standard US Postal Service international shipping method." The catch here is that good old USPS packages come straight to my door whereas the loathsome UPS deliver packages into the evil hands of the local customs. They levy about 35% import duty and sales tax on both the cost of the goods and the shipping cost (!) but that is not the end - UPS also add a charge for presenting the package to customs. I cannot be bothered to work it all out exactly, but I estimate that the rush shipping with extra charges, duties, levies etc. it would cost at least as much as with standard shipping, i.e. around $275 in total. I, along with the rest of the world outside the US, will not be purchasing a subscription and would humbly suggest that, in the name of solidarity, US residents also ignore this kind and cynical offer.
That said, I offer my heartfelt thanks to the people at Rhino who were kind enough to give us these wonderful November downloads free of charge. For that gesture I am truly thankful and Grateful. I hope they come up with more "promotions" like this, but I hope that in the future they can offer shipping costs (outside the US) that can be considered realistic.
I'll pass this along. I've inquired what's up on this.
...acting as the US shipping agent for the folks overseas, and still save the final recipients half of this silly S/H.
Thanks for noticing my rant and passing it on to the powers that be. I hope they take note. You may recall that similar shipping cost "anomalies" have occurred in the past - and have been rectified (in no small part due to your intervention, I suspect). It is comforting to know that you are still watching over us all.
