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!

Oh, and it is not 10/26/80, like some folks are hinting. Jerry's vocals are all wrong.

found a mention of a winterland show as the source. also mentioned is a B version. were there 2 different vesions put up?
this site is a bit awkward to navigate, and no way of viewing past winners/shows.

anyone else have difficulty getting Saturday's download?

I have tried a couple of time to get the download today. For a while the message was that the web site was not available because of updates and now the download does not appear to be there. I hope that Dead.net makes Saturday's song available.

RE: Thanks Canyon Critter!

What with the time difference between the UK and California and the problems with downloads stopping half way thru etc, I want to thank CC for posting the links and art work he has. Damn, now I`ve missed "Sugaree".

Well, this one is a toughy! I don't have a clue which version this is, but I'll try to narrow my guesses down to 80-81.

Thank you Canyon Critter!!!

Not sure what everyone's problems are but CC's links are flawless. I've had to try 2 or 3 times with the direct dead.net links but CC's are clean and quick.

As mentioned, if it keeps crappin' out, clean your browser cache and try again. Also, try Firefox instead of M$ Explorer - seems a bit more stable,

Finally, the "file properties" for a complete Sugaree should be 24,586,499 bytes.

Good luck and thanks again CC!!

What a long strange trip.....

excellent

This is mid to late '80's ~ I'd guess 87 or 88. Interesting double-track of Jerry's vocal on the last verse, haven't heard that before.
Love hearing Brent's organ flourishes on this song.

1980

I was thinking 1980 because Jerry pronounced wagon as "way-gon" instead of "wag-gon."

No segue?

Deadbase shows Sugaree > Minglewood on 10/13; therefore I eliminated that 1980 date from my search criteria (DOH!) Nice editing work Mr. Lemieux !!
To dawg re previous songs: look deeper into this blog and you will find the links that Canyon Critter has been providing us.

Say what?

My download is 10:14 in length but has a harsh cut off. This is the first day I've had a problem. Others have a 10:14 download but a fadeout version.

Speaking of problems, and if this is the biggest in life then life is pretty sweet, but what is up with yesterday?

On facebook, the Dead announced yesterday as Winterland, then after ment helpful comments said yesterday was Springer's Inn.

Critter, you have two downloads up for yesterday, perhaps your quick correct entry for the original will be the one the Dead announces as a second winner.

Were two versions posted yesterday?

The download page is a trick to find and the download link is a mystery.

This is becoming an exercise in frustration.

I'd rather listen to Gans ans company on Sirius/XM.

hey

For everyone posting that they missed the link or couldn't find it and need to download it, why do you think that people should take the time and effort to read and respond to YOUR post when you clearly have NOT taken the time to read a few pages of other posts? Canyon Critter has been posting links to all the songs every few pages. Go back a page at a time and you will find the links within a minute or two.

If, by some crazy chance that the powers that be are perhaps taking requests (!), I'm putting my vote in for that waaaaaay underplayed and underappreciated West LA Fadeaway.

If you are having trouble with downloads...

It takes multiple tries to get some of these -- or to get COMPLETE downloads, that is -- and CC's right about clearing your download cache after each attempt, but for some reason I just can't get a complete Speedway. Every single time it comes up as 19.7 MB / 20,237 KB (instead of 23.0 MB / 23,574) but it seems like you just have to poke around and keep on trying.

What a great bunch of tracks, and what a great way to get folks more involved here. Thanks, Dead.net!

Hearing some "Channel Switching" on Sugaree

Is anyone else hearing some switching between the right and left channel toward the very end of Sugaree?

My copy shows some intermittent "peaks" in the right channel towards the end of the recording. Almost as if the person running the board is attempting to enhance a stereo effect.

A great performance and very good recording except the very end.

It is weird hardly anyone is putting up their guess. If you are pretty sure you got it, probably best not to put the answer. I'm 95% sure it's from 1980

My suggestion

Wait a few hours for the Saturday traffic, when everyone's home from work syndrome, blows over. If you can't wait for the music, then you'll have to clear your browsers cache and try, try again to download the whole thing.

Here's the links from the Downloads so far. Hope this helps everyone out that didn't get the shows. Love is Real♥....

site jammed

wow, finally, took 20 mins and several crashes to get here, then several attempts to log in. I see in my mind a very small door, then, off in the distance, it looks like a million deadheads, all at once, trying to push through this small door, there are bodies everywhere, upsidedown, sideways, heads and arms and legs, all stuck together in this massive ball of humanity, trying, trying, trying to get in. Then, pop, one squirts thru, then another and another till there's no more room....now what, wait in line till someone gets their download and departs.....waiting, waiting, kinda reminds me of waiting in ticket lines back in the day, waiting, waiting, then, you score....fun, exciting, frustrating, but that's all good, especially when the prize at the end is dead music. :)

Just want to get on the bandwagon and say thanx to CC for all the help he was handed out to our Deadhead Friends....
Also, wanted to say that I have been able to download all the songs each day without having to use CC's links (though I am glad they are there)....haven't had any problems at all....I just wait until about 12:30 EST....log-on and download...that simple so far!!! (knock on wood)

Nevermind!

I finally figured it out ;-)

So I guess they released the "B" version because the "A" was already released?

Anyway, that now gives us really 31 Days of Dead!!!

I love this idea, but does the song only appear during a certain time period each day? On more than half of the days so far I have checked the site to find no song available- yesterday's is done and todays has yet to begin.

See page 8 of comments

for post by Canyon Critter that lists all the links. (that's where it is on mine ... I have 10 comments per page setting)

Scroll and look for the great artwork - the links are right above.

Even though most are saying those links work great, I still had problems with a couple. Here is how to fix: 1) delete the partial file on your hard drive from the prior download(s); 2) CLEAR YOUR BROWSER CACHE.

After I did that a couple times it worked fine for me. There's no 'hoax' or evil machination here (otherwise mods would have deleted CC's links), I think that the server and/or software can't handle the load from so many new folks like myself enjoying this generous offer from dead.net.

Smile and be grateful. :)
