Grateful Dead

Chilligan’s Char-grilled Swingset Adventure Part 1 Vine

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!

We haven't selected a daily winner yet. The first person to answer correctly will get to pick a Road Trips of their choice. To get started, login or register using the form above.
We haven't selected a winner for the week of 11/22 yet!

what a ride!

Many thanks for these incredible tunes in great sound quality.

I loved this month as I got to listen to lots of music from many eras of the band.

I was hoping the subscription service was going to be for daily downloads!

Reason Behind Song Selection??

Great collection of tunes. Kind of like a 3 disc version of So Many Roads.

I would love to find out the reasoning behind the song selection. Was it so that there is a variation in the difficulty in coming up with date and location?

Clearly the Sug Mags is one of the tougher selections.

Also the stats would be nice. Which was the most common wrong selection? Who managed to get the most correct selections?

Thank You!

I'd like to thank those responsible for giving us this FREE music. These are 30 songs from the 2000+ shows that the Dead played. It's a cross section of their music - not "The 30 best versions of Dead songs ever played."

Not all of us complain!

Peace everyone....

The RT Subscription page in the store has been changed...

...if you didn't already know. The "30 song" statement about the bonus disc has been removed as has any info on where the bonus disc mat'l will come from (other than it's "unreleased"), and wording has been added to say that at least the first two releases will be complete shows, with add'l material to fill up the discs. All releases will be three disc sets.

It now says the finishing touches are being put on the first two releases, so somebody should just man up and let us know what they are LOL.

Wo-oh, what I want to know is, are you kind?

Indeed you are!!!

I'd just like to thank everybody involved in making this all happen. Many thanks also to 3phase and particularly to Canyon Critter.

And to echo Canyon Critter, thank you to Jerry, Bobby, Phil, Billy, Mickey, Pig, Brent, Bruce, Donna, Keith, Vince, Tom, Mr. Graham, Mr. Lemieux, and Marye. Not to mention the kind souls like Rex, RamRod, etc. etc. etc. etc.

Hopefully we can all do this again sooner rather than later - and a suggestion for anyone thinking about posting any negative comments - "been thinking you got to mellow slow, if you get confused, listen to the music play".

That would be interesting

I would also very much like to see the stats.

It would be neat to know how long it took, after the post, for the winners to nail it. It would be cool, down to the second.

I'm sure all that stuff is considered "market research", obtained at great expense, and be held close to the vest. LOL

What a ride. Like a roller coster; way crazy in the beginning, lots of ups and downs, and round and rounds In the middle, and at the end it just slows and stop.

Get me another ticket, I'll run around and get in line again!

31 Days have November?

HSC - What a fun trip. Friends and family have been enthusiastically patient with "download time!" Including from the Bear Creek Festival where androit hot spots are weak, taking an hour to download the tune that would take 10 minutes at home. But all mine are from the day deadnet put em out, except day 1, Speedway. Thank you canyon critter. Thank you deadnet!!
To some of ya'll; never look a gift horse in the EYES
Congrats to all the contest winners, whoever you may be. I've got some old tapes that would stump your ass.

what a long strange trip it's been...

...this November, and elsewhere. I've had a blast this month with y'all trying to guess the daily picks. They've been doozies too! I've only had 6 right...never in on time...but always enjoying the hunt. Parable, the only game in town. Thank you for your unwitting support of us deadheads and the fulfillment of the chase. We've all had a blast! This last pick I'm sure I'm way off, I chose 5-5-77, but on second thought it sounds like fall/winter '78. Good luck to all!

This has all been wonderful, but now I'm on my way...

Thanks so much for the 30

Thanks so much for the 30 days of free music. Only 1 band would allow people to share and enjoy their music for free, proving that sometimes it's not all about the $. Its been like Christmas everyday, being totally excited to come home and see what song is up next.
Thanks for the miracles

I would like to applaud you on the 30 days of Dead. I enjoyed coming home to see what was on the menu for the day. Some nice surprises along the way.

I am very Grateful for the free downloads & a nice addition to my Ipod music stash & I had fun with the contest regardless of whether I won or not. I too am not sure why there were some repeat songs of alternate venue but will enjoy them for what they are.

I look forward to Furthur opportunities to have some fun with the music that will always be a part of my life & I can only hope site will continue to evolve as the Dead have done since the first time jammed.

Thank You ☮
It's all about the ♫

Nights Owls!!

The late night activity on this board has been enjoyable to say the least. It reminds me of listening to that underground radio station out of Little Rock that played great music into the wee hours of the morning. Beaker Theater?

I have to admit I was expecting something other than a repeat of Sugar Magnolia for today's selection.

Just in case you don't have the time to listen to several hundred versions of Sugar M. on the archive (LMA), you might want to start with this one. Just paste the link into your browser and Jump Like a Willy's in 4-Whell Drive!!

Best Wishes and To All A Good Night,

Actually got quite a few right, but of course I didn't try until it was 9 or so. But it was still a lot of fun! My mom was wishin for a scarlet/fire every day. Hahaha, woops.

Anyways, thanks again! Love my free music.

Many Thanks

Good fun these thirty days. Especially enjoyed comparing the early and later Sugar Magnolia, and the WRS Let It Grow with the later standalone. Yeah, I can do it with official releases and auds too, but this was was fun, and I could cop a bit of midday enjoyment during a stretch of working.

Nicely done!

oh, but....

....I guess we'll need to come back one more time, in the morning, to confirm if we guessed right (that is, those of us who are too lazy to go to the archive and listen and are just following our noses ~ with a little help from Deadbase ~ instead). Well, and to see who's the weekly winner.

Spectrum 5-13-78, I say ~ based on the happy punch factor.

If I were right, AND very very lucky, would I choose the Aoxomoxoa original mix LP, or the Warlocks box....?
