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 winner for the week of 11/22 yet!

Why?

Why leave us hanging? Conatct DGMLive to help you solve your problems. Look at my password, can you remember it? Is this program east coast program based on a west coast site? Let us know how to handle the limitations on down loading and posting Please! I appreciate the idea but now I feel like I am wasting my time. I hope you are not being charged by a company and this is all internal people with great intent because this can cause heads to stray and seek other outlets. If yor are being charged don't accept sorry because this is not right. We should bring community together not pushed away. Please address the problem and provide a communtiy response. I spent a lot of the day trying to down load and respond but kept getting kicked out. I have enjoyed over 100 shows and travel with great community which I was looking forwrd to catch back up with but maybe My thoughts are not important and you want me to move on. Please respond.

Thanks for your efforts

Peace,

Thanks Canyon Critter

Now that's community!! I feel sorrow for my post. I am a positive person. I was really looking forward to the Sugaree then let down multiple times and settings were changed by the website. Multiple error pages would appear but message would go through.
Time to update, Hummm

Thanks, CC, for the links!

Since I was having continual problems with the "official" website links, your foolproff links are much appreciated.
Thank you.

Tech Problems

I must agree with some of the suggestions. Over here in Blighty, the time difference makes it dashed awkward for us Brits. So far, I've only succeeded in getting three out of six of the downloads (this is assuming that my 47 second version of 'Dark Star' was a failed download rather than the record for the shortest version of the song). So, yes, if you could leave them available for rather longer or put them all up at the end of the month so we can get the ones we missed (and let us know that you intend to do that!!!), it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Cliff.

OK today

Today was my first time being able to download the whole track on the the first attempt. I can't link it in any way to time of day or clearing cache or anything else that I can think of.

Yesterday was the opposite -- over 10-attempts, which made me feel bad about all the bandwidth I was unnecessarily sucking from the site. I reckon you just have to hang in there.

Thankfully, CC and before that Woody1 have been kind enough to post links and the site operators have left the goodies there to be had, even if the links disappear.

Today was definitely my favourite; so sweet. Looking forward to some acoustic treats... Day 30 has to be Ripple.

I am not getting the download button for Sugaree, either. But, after several tries I am not getting the whole download from Critters link either. This is pretty frustrating, what to do now???

Fabulous Sugaree

Really like this performance of one of Jerry's classic era songs.

It has to be very early '80s. Reminds me of the Dead Set album and the shows at the Rainbow Theatre in Finsbury Park, so that era, 80/81

Jerry still sounds young!

Links Available and Working (Sunday 7:00AM CST)

All,

I just checked CC's links to the prior DL's and they are working.

Scroll about half-way down this page. CC posted links to each DL so far this week.

The official GD links disappear from this site around 11:00PM CST and the next day's DL isn't available here until 11:00AM CST. Times vary by zone.

THANKS CC!! Nice work!

Best Wishes-Jimmy

Why not leave the download

Why not leave the download link active until the next day's song becomes active?

The window is too short, and the server is often too busy to get through.

Thanks CC! This was becoming a huge daily nightmare to grab these songs. I guess the website was not prepared for all of the traffic.Some days I can't even log on! Love the music though. Love is real not fade away! mafv

30 Days Of Dead

Love this concept! Why not just leave the download active for each day instead of making it disappear? Seems like this would solve a whole lot of the problems I'm reading. I'm not a comp guru, so this might not be as easy as it sounds. Just a thought....

I also got 23.4 and no cut. Interesting to see so little speculation or dicussion about the date and venue. Maybe folks are feeling just a little disillusioned after yesterday's error? We euro heads can't participate in the contest anyway.... more's the pity

Trippin on the cover art

I was just trippin out on a Dark Star and had a bug up my bum and had to make it...hope everything is working out for you all on the dloads. You are all very welcome, I love you all, even the freaky deadheads ;-)

Yesterday's debacle was no fun seeing as I got it right (I think very quickly) and they used the "other" download as the answer. Oh well, this is all in fun anyway, breaking out the old archives and frantically searching is fun. The best part about these things, is you find some really awesome music in between searching.

Guess that's the way it should be.

Obviously. And I'm pretty sure it was earlier in Brents time,
rather than later.

This is a great idea and I am all about a free download... I think we need to petition to have the downloads available after the day it was posted. I missed a few because I couldn't get to a computer... I would love to have the Althea that was posted on Nov 3.

Is it just me, or is this site not working very fluidly?
