30 Days Of Dead - November 9th

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!

Morning Stu says:

"Listen folks, I really do try to be patient with this site, and this whole 30 Days thing is a really wonderful gesture from all involved, but for this site to be functioning so poorly in a different way each day is worse than farcical."

I contacted who turned out the be the *previous* webmaster for the site, and she said that the whole thing has been turned over to Rhino Records, and that she no longer knows who is responsible for the functioning of the website. Obviously it's no longer in the Dead's community, which kind of goes on.

I'm a Drupal admin/developer, (the CMS that is running under, but NOT for, and I notice that today, 11/9, someone actually did some tweaking and things seem to be running MUCH more smoothly this afternoon. I'm hoping they got their ducks in a row, or their Jimmy's in a Row, or whatever.

In the meantime, would it be bad form to load the songs on a private web server and offer them to this community? Not that I would...but I could...gotta be some terms of service that I'd be breaking, so I'm loath to do it. (Always wanted to use "loath" like that in a sentence on-line - miracles happen every day!) Anyone?

What about offering your services to the powers that be? A lot of Dead heads are very tech savvy (not me but many are) and some are even in the tech industry. However great this is (and it is), and whatever's going on at, this is obviously a technological mess. It would be very in keeping with our whole aesthetic if the fans, well . . . contributed to this endeavor. Can anyone offer them any services that would help this situation?

Think how cool it would be if one of us fixed this. Just a thought.

Problem d/L?

Let's try again. I've just used this link to re-d/l the file and it works. Apparently the previous one does not (not for me at least). The link button still does not connect appropriately.

Copy and paste the above link into your browser. It was working 2 minutes ago.

Correct about "China Cat Sunflower> High Time." Sadly, DeadBase X and DeadBase 1.10 are in error in listing "I Know You Rider." This correction has been submitted.

First, public thanks to Amarula for being the first to offer a link that actually worked for me, and then a big thanks to whoever it was that got the official link to opperate again.

Your efforts are much appreciated.

HSC Persevere! Its in the tradition of Jerry sayin "Let em tape us!" I have a trader tape where he says 'Hey you, you'll get a better recording if you move back and get the mic out of your coat" or something like that. Theres ben a couple of nights I've had a time getting in, logging on, downloading... but what a gift from Deadnet!

tried to post this yesterday and kept getting kicked off

Holy Cow Chips Batman...I'm In !!! took about 3 hours of fartin 'round til the site let me on.
First to the 2 guys that responded to my question about the links and Eastern time...I tried to respond to each but was booted off the server.Thank You Much!!!
TIP: If you have CCleaner use it to clean out your Cash and Cookies and reopen your browser...helped me. If you dont have CCleaner it can be done manually thru your browser settings..The Idea is to start FRESH!! Today is the first day I encountered problems with the site.
To download Estimated Profit (one of my favorite Bobby songs) I use the method using the url:

Just sub the name of the song you missed instead of estimatedprophet.mp3 and volia (my french sucks) you will dowwnload it directly no password....Thats how I DLed my song today.
I read this yesterday on someones post so I cannot take credit for it...Works "just exactly perfect"!!
I have still yet to see the date and Venue for He's Gone B...I have it so someone must know!!! I sure hope someone was not polluting the game with false trax to steer people away with the wrong guess. That would be diabolical !!! Tried to post this and got kicked off again there is about 700 Deadheads logged on right now 9:30 pm(est)

Today I got on right away

Today I got on right away and downloaded the song NO PROBLEMS here.
Yesterday was intense though. If you look at the numbers to see who and how many are online they are HUGE! I have been on this site when only 3 or 4 other people are on line...yesterday I counted 700!!
Thanx sooooo much to and the people behind this Promo...This is fun and challenging.Plus we get to Keep the songs! 'bout 6 minutes shy of 2 1/2 hours of free music so far. That is like a Double CD for free!Also the tunes are super prime picks from the Vault ..of which have not yet been commercially released.Everyone have a GRATE day!!!
Peace from Philly

He's Gone 'b' version Date/Venue?

You're more than welcome, Ron. No connection with the man but CC wrote that he'd try to check in on the road/at the shows.

I'm just picking up the slack for the poor folks that missed out on previous days but probably can't to go diving through a week's worth of posts to find them while the website is having technical difficulties.

I'm still trying to find a definitive answer for the "He's Gone" 'b' version so I can include that in the List o' Links. I should probably just add the link and fill in the rest later.
