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!

Will you ever re-show old links?

Some of us actually work for a living, and can't always count on getting to the daily download. Can ya please put up a week's worth on Sundays or something? I missed 2, 3 & 4. Thanks for the tunes!

I tried to get yesterday's download but the site was performing maintenance. Does anyone know how to get it know. It looks like the tune is no longer avilable

I'm guessing 12/31/69, but I think they already released that. Anyone know how I can download yesterday's PITB? I missed that one

Gotta love Fridays off work, so I can focus on the important things in life... guessing the right venue and date for a great version of "Easy Wind."

Cheers!

Two drummers. And that would be TC in the background, right? When was his last official show as a band member?

Has to be 1969....but which show?

What's with the extra 1:51 of just useless noise after the 8 minute mark? This could have been clipped....still, a great verson nonetheless.

I failed to check that the end of Easy Wind came about 1:49 before the end of this track. Actual song length was about 8:03. I put all the performances into excel, sorted by song length, so I could find the right song more quickly. Fail on my part today.
I've got the right song now, but well after I entered my {wrong) guess. Too smart for my own good. Love the harp at about 3:58 into great guitar. Thanks, even though I am a loser today, I feel like a winner listening to the song. I'm tired of Fall and Winter weather, looking forward to Spring. Cheers.

Download Problems

Since there is no file size on download it is impossible to figure out if your getting the whole file.
Just a suggestion why not compress file in .zip or .rar for downloading so the complete file is loaded before times outs and errors occur.

Thanks so much

What a wonderful month...This is a perfect distraction from my desire to go on the new Furthur tour, but I know it's beyond my means. The Western Tour was wonderful, and the New Year's shows will soon be upon us. The game will probably get harder as the timing on this song shows. All is not what it seems to be. Good luck to all!

I thought the length was a rouse- I checked the end to see if there were any notes leading into the next song

I think I have it, but I thought I had the last 2 as well.

My book shows 2 shows at the Nat'l Guard Armory in St. Louis on May 24/25 in 1968. I'm probably wrong,though.
