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!

He's Gone b

Sustainabill - I found the link to the b version of He's Gone on day 7's thread. I just went there and tried it again, but it's not working from the site;

http://www.dead.net/fetchFile.php?file=/sites/deadbeta.rhino.com/30daysmp3/hesgoneb.mp3

So, unless someone posts it from an FTP site, I can't help you with this.

Levachek - Originally the rules said that songs would be posted each day at 9am PT / noon ET ... But I can't find that in the above instructions ... Oh well.

Good luck everyone!!

mayhem, i tells ya

i agree with Arkadin...I've been checking this site daily but it's been a total mess. I was only able to get the songs when someone posted links to all of them in a single post. Did the IT guys working on this website get dosed or something?

1/3 of the way through, coming up for air!

What a month! We're only 9 days in, counting today (what could it be?!) and I'm grinning like a chessy cat. I just finished listening to all previous tracks last night while grading essays and the He's Gone>Bird Song Jam takes the cake! I agree that the abrupt cut is jarring, but hey, I don't know if a fade out would be any better. If I want the rest of the show, I'll hunt down an audience and make a little "composite" tape. However, I am curious whether the song selection is a sign of future releases. A Warfield box set? New Year's 1970 at long last? I predict some Alaska choices soon. . .

Has anyone else got a bad audio configuration notice trying to download Easy Wind B? Any ideas how to fix it? Also, does anyone know how to get the artwork to the album. I'm new at this stuff,and have a brand new iPad. Still learning. Thanks for all the awesome music. The band still rocks, and so do you guys!

Got a cut-off first attempt, but now have 12:17 and 28.1MB. Now to work out when and where. After all the bickering I am now nervous about providing any hints - but there is one obvious clue early on

Made my guess. Real early, but un-circulated.

It's all I got. I figure I just fire off the top of my head.

I'm getting it at 28.4mb, 12:17. Slightly abrupt cut off, but feels like a credible segue point. Unless someone knows better...

Much to my surprise I got this at the second attempt, despite there being a bazillion other users and the site suffering the most amazing overload problems.

Can anyone confirm that yesterday's "He's Gone" B version was from Paris '72?

Abrupt song endings, or?

Just SOP for the band, segueing one song into another (and another), hence the "incomplete" files in some cases?

Seems like I got the full track, at 12:16, but yeah, there is a pretty sharp cut at the end. I just want to make sure I got the whole thing. Is that abrupt ending normal?

He's Gone b version is ... ??

Jajen - The a version of He's gone was the only thing available to me at this IP address, but thanks to Canyon Critter, I downloaded the b version ... I guessed 5-4-1972 for remarkable similarity, length and especially because Weir dedicates the next song to the state of Texas ... Check it out here;
