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!

Downloads and itunes

From FAcebook

Grateful Dead YESTERDAY'S ANSWER: Warfield, San Francisco, CA - 10/7/80
This recording was drawn from the middle of the GD’s unprecedented 15 night run
at the Warfield in San Francisco, from which part of Dead Set and Reckoning were
drawn. All of these concerts were recorded to multi-track tape. This a rough mix
done in 1981 during ...production of Dead Set.

Future

My hope is that once the gremlins take a trip somewhere else we'll be able to download the files...that the files will continue to be available in some way shape or form for us. I'm sure the site didn't intend us to have such a difficult time.

Let us pray. Amen.

Thanks for the kind links

I have had only minor trouble up until yesterday when I couldn't get on to the site for quite a while. I finally got it though. Today I tried to dl directly once. Didn't work. Pasted in a link and worked like a champ. I appreciate dead.net bringing the nuggets. As someone who purchases all the live releases, this is step in the right direction IMHO. If I miss a day, no worries, links are around. NFA!

Thanks all around

This is just awesome.
I missed the first two days, but was able to grab the files thanks to the suggestions for the direct links.

Thanks to all.

Thanks to Dead.net.

It can be frustrating at times, but please be patient and kind. Talk about an early Christmas present!!!!!!!

Observations on the 30 days from the north

Waiting for the the tune to buffer, I had the opportunity to read the fine print of the contest.
Now I'm bummed out a bit that as a Canadian, I am excluded from winning any prizes.
Oh well.
At least I'm still enjoying the ride and just playing for fun.
Another observation: Someone stated that the traffic on the site quadrupled. I think it has increased 20 fold or more. Most days when I would go in to grab the Tapers Section there would be only around 10-15 users on line, now at last check I see 400 online. Crazy!!!

thanks tashwolf for the download.. as much as I love this site I have no problem telling the people that run it they need help. Why don't you charge 10-15$ a year for membership; get rid of some riffraff and use the money to update the abilities. i mean seriously, this site is effed.

Grateful Giving Day

Thanks for making November a month to be truly Grateful, I will be playing all I have on Thanks Giving Day! Missed the 1st 7 days, 6 due to work & family & the 7th I could not get in! Kept getting timed out! Glad to see it has been so popular! Much better connection today. I was finally up and running last night after quite a rough start getting synced up, I think I was bumped off & had to log back in 7 or 8 times!
Always had long waits leading up for shows & could not always make all of them, Why should an MP3 be any different?! LOL The end result was always worth it. Maybe I will get some miracle copies somewhere along the way?! :)
yesterdays Estimated Profit was definitely a "rough mix" with a very abrupt end to the recording I thought.
Tonight's China>Rider was a superb classic old treat of good quality. Can't wait for what the rest of the month will bring!
Again thanks for feeding my head! ☮

You who figure out how .....

.....to fix these d/ls are geniuses. Helena et al are right--delete the word timestamp in the link--got it no problem.

Now where the hell is this from---I dont know, but Im guessin

SPOILER ALERT

It's from early 1970, after TC left

Is it still considered a spoiler alert, if I have no idea what the answer is

Wow, that was really good. Probably need to be a little more open-minded about that year and that tune! Nice job on the sound. Strange how the Estimate from the same run had a lot less low end. The delay on the vocals is wack!

beautiful stuff

Found it, though I know I'm not the first. I thought it sounded like late '69 so I looked there first, but it's a hair past that. Note the slight GDTRFB hints in the jam toward Rider.

Since I´m Spanish I cannot vote, but I think late 68. Thank you for the music. I believe that by the end of november if you now have, say, 1.000 users, you will have 10.000.
