That one was pretty easy
Yay! Looks like someone out there is cleaning up the Comments section so the replies follow the post they were intended for. Looks like it's still a work in progress, but here's hoping it gets sorted out. Sure makes it easier on us. Many thanks!
As for comments on today's Rag, it's all been said before, so I'll simply enjoy it!
but whats in a name? really? think i heard that somewhere once
nice little morsel of a pretty tasty show
even gets nice and trippy syncing it up. enjoyed that one
Something familiar about this version. Anyhow...another easy one today despite the minor confusion which was far less confusing than three names for one venue. The answer is obvious....just gotta poke around.
Love the jam at the end of this version. Not sure what type of electric guitar Jerry is playing but his tone and sound are right on!
He was playing a red 1967 Gibson SG :)
Uhmm ... hmm ... let's see ... can it be ... hmm ... 1969 ...
...songs with apostrophes in the title.
I like that stage patter moment where Phil castigates an audience member for requesting "TruckING".
" 'TRUCKING?' You don't say 'Trucking'!! "
Or something like that.
Lindley Meadows '75
some good vocal clues in this one and another potential venue name fiasco...
What happens when the place they played isn't listed to be selected for the contest? ie..day 5
a quick google of the original venue name will lead to the answer I selected
Knew this right away, a truly great raaaaa-gah.
Unfortunately this is not only another repeat, but unless i am missing something, the original name of the venue itself is not an option to select.
Here's an idea...what's wrong with just the date? or date and city? Shouldn't we be beyond this?
Now that the fact of another repeat is out of the bag, no guessing or searching the archives is needed. We've had two Doin' That Rag offerings to date, with one aligning by track length. Much less fun for all.
Please don't rag on me folks, we've received well over 200 new songs over the years, but someone is dropping the ball by giving us repeats. With so many glorious unreleased songs in the vault, this just should not happen. Statistically, given the vast number available for selection, eleven occurrences of repeat offerings by random chance alone is highly unlikely. Not saying it's intentional! but something in the selection and/or documentation process is amiss.
Occasionally repeats happen in 30 days, but hey, they are FREE. And very fun. My ear caught this one early. From 30 days 2016. Great version!!!
There is only one choice.
So many fine sounding versions of this song in the year in question.
Love that chord progression. And that last consonant "-GUH"!
They really build up the dynamics just right on this version.
A great portion of tape for the era.
Had to try a 2nd source to get the pitch just right in order to sync up the audio.
So where is everyone searching for the songs answer. I searched one site, and yesterdays show wasn't there. no wonder I couldn't find it, got the year right though.
I use archive dot org. They definitely had yesterday's offering. I may check setlist dot fm in the Grateful Dead statistics section to confirm the dates a particular song was played. But for the audio definitely the Archive.
Deadbase, Archive.org,setlist.fm, google search,There are several other sites that have shows,setlists etc. just don't remember the names but if you google search Grateful Dead setlist followed by a year you'll get several options
I'd been there before, been there before.
but today's is a nasty 12/6 curveball(i.e.-lots of movement for you non-baseball types god love ya'!).
As far as the song goes, that guitar jamming in the last 2 minutes or so is SMOKIN'!. Thanks again to Lemieux and dead.net for putting a little cerebral entertainment into my day.
Very groovy track!!
...for MP3 download....
All the way at the bottom of the page, below the answer to yesterday's pick.
The drop down box contains the correct name of the venue as of the time of this particular performance. The confusion arises from the fact that many sources refer to this show by the venue's prior name, but the name change had occurred months earlier. I happen to live a short walk from the location!
a wise man once said if you get confused listen to the music play,but here is what I found ! on Archive.org its listed as one and the other on dead.net so I googled the date images and found a picture of a flyer for the show ,it says the (name on archive) presents (name on dead.net) hope that helps,if not see 1st line of this post
Always been a favorite, and this is a great version (But haven't we heard this one before)............
I know the following night's version of the song has been released,the whole show has in fact
Yes yes yes, also, think some might have some venue confusion here....
Besides just getting a few per page, these comments aren't sorted chronologically. Dead.net ... could we have a control so we can determine the sort order or at least, could you display these in a non-random way ... like, chronological? Thanks for all your efforts and I like the new website!
First generation comments ARE sorted from most recent to oldest per day. Note that second and higher generation replies (like this one!) may be much later than the first gen under which they appear.
Hey there! Anyone know where I can download the artwork for 2018's 30 Days of Dead November? Mahalo!
Haven't seen a download link this year which is weird since they've had one every year. Seems like they're still working out glitches on the new website. There definitely are a few!
Hoping they'll post a link, too!
right click your mouse on the picture at the top of the page and click save image :)
from the main 30 days of days page at the top of the page is the album cover use your mouse and right click on the image and then click save image
Quoting kutsavi: This year's artwork isn't as great quality as previous years, so I Photoshopped it a little bit. I upped the resolution from 75 to 300px per inch, and re-sized it from 750 to 1500px square.
All of the 30 Days' tunes and artwork, including this year's, are available for download here:
A reference I use is https://www.whitegum.com/intro.htm. You can pull up any song, and it will show a list of versions that have been included on official releases etc etc. If history repeats itself, there will be days when we're all searching through 75 versions of a song from the early 80s, and it's nice to be able to eliminate at least a few right off the bat ;) As a bonus, it also often lists extra verses, alternate lyrics, etc.
Has anyone else had that worry? Already put my entry in wrong venue forgot I have an extra hour.
song never quits
