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!

nice idea but too many problems...

Nice...I get home from work last night eager to hear the next song and the Dead website is down "for routine maintainence". By the time I retire, it is still down and this morning finds a functioning website but it's too late for me to get yesterday's song. I give up on this giveaway; too many problems. I love their generosity but wish they could get the technical stuff down. Thanks but I'm out of here...

leaving the file up

getgross makes a good point. Leaving the file up until the new one is posted would make this a better experience. As far as incomplete downloads, I've had that happen repeatedly and this particular download of Sugaree took about 5 tries. Not sure why. Hoping I have it right at 23.4 MB. My first attempt actually exceeded that size and resulted in the track starting then restarting about a minute in. Weird. Had a lot of trouble with this site yesterday. Anyway, yes the concept is fantastic and exciting, thanks! The execution could benefit from some fine tuning.

Sorry for the Confusion

I believe cbs73 was the first to suggest that this "Sugaree" was from St. Paul 7/10/81. I too thought that was the proper attribution, but I was wrong. I had also thought that I might be receiving a soundboard of that show in trade, but I was wrong about that too. Sorry for the confusion.

"Sugaree" from the Warfield Theatre 10/13/80 opens the first electric set from that show -- a set that does not circulate either as a soundboard or as an audience recording. A total cipher. "El Paso" from this set (but not "Sugaree") was released as a bonus track on the expanded HDCD release of "Reckoning."

Best to all,

Sugaree-Right Channel Gremlins

Does anyone have some right channel "gremblins" in the final minute and a half of yesterday's Sugaree?

During the "Shake it, Shake it" chorus I get some distortion.

Anybody else or just me?

Good Luck today! Sounds like "He's Gone" will be coming at us.

I just figured out how to get password, OK, scroll down to the left side of home page, when you see your name and account, click on account, then on the next page it will say your name and EDIT, click edit, fill out and put in new password twice, put in email, name, ect then click enter at bottom, now you should have a password, I was able to change my name back to the original I had chosen and lost, LMK if helps

Sorry I missed Sugaree. This is a nice thing you're doing, Deadnet. I'm usually so busy I don't spend time here much. This is a good way to drive people to the site and discover it again.

tough one

I agree on the 80-81, maybe 82. I slogged through a bunch of shows and came up empty so far. The good news: while they played the song for many years, it wasn't every 3rd or 4th show or anything.

I had to download a few times until I finally got the fade out version, though it kept showing me a complete download. I finally have it now though. Not sure, you can also try Canyon Critters link for todays download.

My Question is this.

Do people read the comments on here? If you are asking where the links are, I can't do anything more for you....they are posted every comment page.

And as far as this version it's definately early 80's, hard one too. I think I got it though.

Don't know about the A and B versions, really wondering why they posted the link to a different version than was guessed, and my real question is how did that dude guess it???

Well, again, my thanks to Critter. I used the link you provided for today's Sugaree and I have a sweet ending. I will also grab the second, B, version from yesterday. Like Baskin Robbins, we are looking at, at least, 31 treats in 30 days.

Not sure about the lyrics, I

Not sure about the lyrics, I didn't check it 100% percent. It starts the same and has the same outro. They do start to diverge after about 40 seconds. Overdubs on the commercial release? I checked dozens and dozens and none were so close as this one. Guess we'll find out tomorrow or if someone else nails it.

I am guessing that dude was the first wrong guess to "A", that happened to match the "B" version. Based on downloaded song length only, I guessed Berkeley Pauley Ballroom 6/21/70 yesterday, only to find the "A" cut ran well after the song end. Winterland was about 15 seconds off my guess, so I can see the coincidence, if similarly, someone based their guess on track length without review, to get a quick winning chance guess in. Still, both they and I would be wrong. With the correct track length, and a quick listen, it was clearly Springers.

Anyway Critter, thanks for everything you have done for this contest.

Site Issues?

Dead.net's Drupal install seems to be giving them fits today. I FINALLY got to download Sugaree, but like others, it only came in at about 2mb, and cuts off just after 2 minutes. Anyone have the URL for the download so I can try it again? I guess I need a miracle to get today's miracle :-)
