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!

yesterday's download

I missed yesteday's Dark Star - Is there a way to still download that? Or are they only available for one day?

Really enjoying this

Thanks Chastason, perfect album cover for my iTunes library.

Is there anyone who hasn't memorized every single guitar lick, vocal nuance, keyboard rill, drum beat, and bass thud of each of the 272 Altheas the Grateful Dead performed between 79 and 95? Sheesh.

Seriously, that is what makes this so fun. I got the first one right, was wrong yesterday, but think I was right - and first - today (but thought I might be first on Monday too, and wasn't).

Have a great November fellow Deadheads.

John

Should re-master the Althea file

There is big time clipping on that file. It came into digital too hot. They should redo and replace the file. And thank you for this marvelous content/promotion!

I too would love the first two days .. e-mail may be to big buy a You-Send it file could help out 100 people, assuming of course we are allowed to share them. My e-mail is" rickseng0118 AT yahoo (thats a zero after the g)

I guessed 3/28/81 .. not really sure that it but just remember listing to that tape over and over back when I first got it, wow, a little shy of 23 years ago.

Good luck every one :)

Hartford, CT - March 14, 1981

Listened to the download here and the Althea from this show and they are surely one in the same. (^_^)

I'll say Anchorage

I'll say Anchorage 6/20/1980. West High Aud., sounds like an early 80's Jerry.

Early '80's

I agree with early 80's. Jerry's voice sounds old but not too old. That's definitely Brent on keys. And Jerry's not using MIDI on his guitar yet. "Althea" was one of the songs he liked to use MIDI on once he got that technology.

Early 80's

Take note to the tone Brent is using on his Fender Rhodes piano. Def early 80's. Also, Garcia's voice is smoother and not as blown as it usually was after '85. I'm guessing '81-'83.

For those that missed the downloads...

...use the link below. The files are still in the directory, just not linked on the pages. You will need to change the song name at the end of the link to get specific files. As long as the site admins stay with the same naming format, you should be good to go. http://www.dead.net/fetchFile.php?file=/sites/deadbeta.rhino.com/30daysmp3/insertsongnamehere.mp3

I have the show

I know I got it shortly after it was posted, but when do they officially announce it? I listened to both in sync and I definitely have it.

79-81

I think its 79-81 too. Brent is there, but not so loud as later in the decade. Your right, Jerry sounds young and healthy too. Guitar pitch is distinct. This show has a lot of reverb in the venue. I took a guess, 12-6-79. I was surprisingly close yesterday, one month off. Though I only feel like I can narrow to parts of year. Tough challenge for me but fun. Thanks.

Althea

Definitely from 1980 or 1981. Brent is still reserved and had not gotten into the "PigPen from Peanuts" sound yet. I am thinking Summer of 1980 - going with Alaska in June.

The Other Juan is Grateful

in a time -- nationally, personally, existentially, whateverly -- where there's not much to be grateful for. I love hearing Jerry singing backwards down the line at me, for me, to me. Thanks to whoever's idea this series was. You're not getting paid enough. :)

This is a tough one

It's definitely either 79 or 80 and I'm leaning toward late, late '79, Nov or Dec.

This is a great idea, btw!! Everybody loves a free download!
