                                                     + 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.

Hey Scott,
Found this post from Jimmy the Cop:
"L'Olympia Theater Paris France 5-4-72 as the correct date."
I can't confirm, though.
PM me if you want links to unposted files.

primal Dead!

I'm loving that this is a raw one, both sound & performance. Snagged it all on the first try, too ~ at 6:47pm pacific time, bugs all worked out & brunch rush all cleared out.

This is a toughie ~ sound quality could easily make it sound older than it is; yet could also obscure the number of drummers. Definitely no organ, but even without TC there was still Pigpen.

'69 doesn't make sense, but that's what the vocals sound most like to me. Though the transition jam argues for later. I'm saying late '69, Pig was laying out and someone had spiked TC's tea so he couldn't find his way to the keys. Perhaps Mickey was assisting him to the stage.

I got it first time, which is amazing considering the heartache I suffered getting logged in in the first place. Indeed there is no space netween "know" & "you" in the link and it is 27.6MB, 28,274KB and 12:03. Why are my downloads ALWAYS 1 second shorter than those that the rest of you report. Maybe my computer is faster.

It may open an embedded player in a browser. Not sure for some folks. I'm using Firefox on a Mac. If it does, just need to do a File-Save As... from there.

Thanks, Ron!

I have the two "B" versions but to summarize another post I too am loath to submit off-site links to any files unless someone clarifies their status.

Somehow, having a couple of pinstripe suits with mirrored shades show up at my door one fine day is not how I envisioned receiving an invitation to meet the band or the kind folks at Dead Net/Rhino. :)

2 questions to those who know more than me. And a comment for all.

1) To whomever posted the clue from deadnet team--where'd you find that clue (I'd prefer Golden Road to CPW but that's just me,)? and

2) Does anyone know why there were 2 He's Gones posted? Was it just a screw-up? I'm just having trouble sleeping while this mystery remains.

Finally, isn't it funny that everyone's so gaga (myself included) about getting these free tunes, when tons of pristine quality recordings are available everyday from bt.etree. I guess the whole "Mystery Date" aspect of the thing is what makes it so cool. Mystery Date--remember that game? "But look out for the Dud."

todays file 5 times. The sizes all match up the way they should. The file does not play. I have an intact supposedly correct file and it will not play in any player that I have. The only one that actually clicks off time when playing is attempted is WMP and then I get no sound. What have I done wrong here?

The next day clues are

The next day clues are posted on the Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/gratefuldead. They probaby appear elsewhere, but I usually catch them here first anyway.

As for the A/B deal, they probably just had two choices ready to go. Maybe we supposed to get the 'b' version later in the month. Can only speculate since no one who really know is saying anything.

To all the folks he keep asking for He's Gone B date: 5/4/72 Olympia Theater, Paris, France. It would help if the recurring complete post lists changed from ??/??/??. Many people have agreed with this date - seems unlikely that it would be officially confirmed.

LOL Stratego

I used to fill the thing up with all the pieces just so I could hold it up over my head and dump 'em out. My pawpaw bought it for me - old fart used to beat me all the time. No concept of "let the small child win". Come to think of it, that's probably why I've grown up so warped and maladjusted. That and the damn rock'n'roll hehehe.

This IS NOT the Dead.Net link for DL but you can listen to streaming audio for verification.

Please share this link with others. Rhino &/or GD probably won't ever confirm.

I was wrong about 4-26-72. Life goes on!

One or Two Drummers

It sounds like one drummer. Therefore 2/18/1971 to 10/20/1974.

Sounds a bit rough for 1974 so early 1971 would be closer.
