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!
                                                   - Less Info
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!

I have no complaints. Every tune was exactly what that day needed to furthur itself along.That being said, I wish one and all a very merry holiday season.

LMAO and so the month ends, not with a bang...

...but with Sugar Magnolia.

I don't think it's ungrateful, given the number of song versions that have yet to see the light of day, to be a little disappointed not to be blessed with a rarity, or at least something not already represented this month - and no matter how awesome this version might be nobody would consider Sugar Mag a rarity.

It just wouldn't have been that hard for TPTB to have finished off the promotion with a "WHOA THAT"S FRICKIN" AWESOME WAY TO GO YAHOOOOOO" vs " Cool. Sugar Mag. This one's pretty good too". I'm guessing I'm not the only person that was surprised, at least.

So, yeah, looking the gift horse in the mouth blah blah blah. That RT subscription though, there's a horse whose teeth I'm gonna have to see.

You folks have a happy holiday season. Be safe.

Alternate version is here...

I played around and found another version here: Kinda funny cuz it starts out with "We'll get started as soon as you guys stop barking orders at us." Might this be sly commentary regarding the negative posts?

Thanks for a great November!

I thought the same thing, Jesus, do Bobby songs get some kind of priority? or is it that they know the Jerry tunes are the real cash cow? Anyway, thank God for etree and other torrent sites, just keep on downloading those Charlie Miller sdb's, get them while you can.....peace and thanks for the tunes.

Repeat again, huh!?!!?

We'll i gues we get another REPEAT ?!?!?

Although happy for free music they have given us, I MUST SAY this has been somewhat of a disappoinment...2 LIGs & 2 SUG MAGS, c'mon on???? I've enjoyed about a third of d'ls, of course all Jerry stuff bascically. I feel like they missed about 20 days/songs that would have've been key, whatever....

And now they want me to purchase all 4 ROAD TRIPS for 2011, WITHOUT FKN knowing what shows they are??? Sorry, give me some show info, why is this so hard?!?! or at least some decade info- IMO they have WAY covered 60's & 70's, i've been waint for ROAD TRIPS release from 1981-1988 for a long time, we'll see : (
