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.

Bummer with the free songs.

Man this is a real bummer. I got like maybe 4 of the songs out of 9. What do they only have them up for d/l for like an hour or 2. Can't fine any way to get the ones I miss. What is up with that?

This is definately from the '67-'68 era. I swear I hear a voice in there that might be Tom Constanton. This was recorded in the day when they were recording from the mikes and not having everything go into the soundboard first.
It also sounds like back in the day, when they would just naturally morph into the next song.

Now for working out when this is from....

For fear of incurring the wrath of those who reckon we should all keep quiet about possible solutions while the competition is still open.... a few clues:
1. The very first China-Rider was played on 30th Sept 1969, so it aint from before then for sure
2. From 16th March 1973 through 1974 the transition jam included feelin' groovy. This version doesn't have one, so you can rule out that period too.
3. The transition jam here - at c4 minutes - is very long for a China-Rider which doesn't have a feelin groovy jam in the transition. Indeed the length of the transition jam gives this China-Rider away.
I hope no-one is offended by these hints or feels that my message constitutes a spoiler.

yeah baby

Thank for the tunage...this is great...harkens back to the good 'ol days (pre-August '07) of the Taper's Section.
By the way, if you wondering why the site is acting funny...the servers are way overloaded due to a quadrupling of site traffic...I found that out...it was pretty apparent already anyways...quite a popular promo I'd say...I wonder what the final numbers will be...net positive or negative for the bottom line?

Looks like a space was accidentally inserted into the file name and is causing the download and stream to break. You can access it directly by removing the space in the url that occurs between "know" and "you".

A little short, sound/mix trouble

From the size of the file and the low-key style of play I'd have to guess that today's China/Rider is a cosmic classic from the Dance Hall in Rio Nido, CA on September 3, 1967, before either song was conceived. :)
