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!

Someone has been posting links for the DL's. Review the comments if you can.

If nothing shows up, let me know and I can e-mail the file. Just remember PITB is a big file-66.2MB.

hacked?

I hope this site didn't get hacked. I just googled my name and a website came up showing pages of online members info. My name and info was on there. Also when attempting to change my password another email I've never seen popped up in the email address slot. It had a @pacbell.net ending. Anyone else seeing this?

Everytime I try to download Playing in the Band . It will not download the whole song . What am I doing wrong

No way

Got to be '72 or '73 (pre Wall of Sound), but the vocal squealings of this particular vintage makes it a bit more of a challenge for me to listen repeatedly and comparatively. I'll take a stab at it but will save my aural taste testing for the next download.

Good luck!

Is about as traditional as the internet gets...if you are having problems, it's probably your computer....but just to make sure make sure you update your flash player (adobe) and Java. If you need more help just let me know.

Regarding the PITB

Fairly good clues:
Complete version, and very long (maybe 2nd longest?).
Only one drummer.
Donna's wailing from 1:58 through 2:03 is something to compare.

Today's download

I just got a 16.1 MB "Playing in the Band" that is 6:41. It's clipped at the end, so I'm guessing I didn't get the whole thing. I think I'll come back in a couple of hours and see if the traffic lets up.
Thanks again for the activity. I'm having fun trying to guess!

PITB File Length

The file is 37.4 MB and the song is almost 16 min long. It is a tasty version. My money is on the second half of '72 but I'm not sure what show! And thanks ever so much to Canyon Critter for making available the first three dowloads. I had missed the 2nd day - Dark Star - seems like there was a lot going on that day!

Ok, so...

The track I downloaded cuts out at the 14 and a half minute mark.
Must not be complete.
And, yeah, has to be pre 74.

How to Tell If Your Download Is Complete

Quick tip to those downloading via Windows XP: keep an eye on your Download Manager. If it reads "Copying" before it reads "Done," your download should be complete. If not, the download was likely pretermitted and so will likely be incomplete.

Best to all,

Playin!

I submitted my guess but it was unclear if it went through. I submitted again. So I may have one guess, or I may have several. So please don't disqualify (murder) me. I know I got it right and I got it in within half an hour of the track being released. Maybe I'll win.

Unbroken chain?

Oh, dear, it´s SO hard to download these songs! I have to try and retry and retry...and the download breaks down all the time! I´ve succeded with the first 3 songs, and they are great. but it takes me hours!!!!!! is this tweakable? kristjan aunver www.movio.se sweden

If they were smart...

... they'd offer each day's song as a torrent. That way, their crappy bandwidth would only be a problem until the leechers get the songs. After that, we'd all get them in just a couple of minutes, without having to re-download many times to get the full file.

I mean, you'd think they'd know about that stuff...

Playing in the Band 28:56

I like the song tab on like this...alot!
It takes the thoughts and use of Maxell Tapes and the
Fast Forward and Rewind Buttons
to a whole new level. You can go anywhere in the song>>>
IN one second or ON any second IN the song.
Annnnnnd you don't have to eject it...
it just stays there. Wow.
And everyday for 26 more days>>>
~the apple of my eye (*)
I couldn't venture a guess without the thought or use
of my Grateful Dead Tapes.
