Days Between?

Can we please get a nice Days Between? I don't think I have any versions of that at all. Thanks for considering this request.

..and my friends they come around.

So thankful for the 30 Days of Dead each year. The contest is great, too. I could think of a lot worse ways to spend my time than figuring out the date/venue of great versions of great songs.

This Black Peter is no joke - Jerry's voice and Phil's bass…whew! Will listen to the whole show tomorrow!

Prize

If thee eye is on the prize then finding the correct answer daily is reward enough. Those of you with the ear and resources may find it rather easy at times. Either way it is a great way to look forward to the day. The rest of this date is quite nice by the way!

No daily prizes? Have you not realized its all about the money money money for Rhino. Just enjoy the music and old memories don't expect anything else in return except that.

After reading the rules it looks like the 30 winners will be in the running for the grand prize. That's OK I guess, but a daily trinket would be nice. Even a postcard with the artwork on it. A Stealie sticker. Something, anything to justify the hours of torment.

I agree...

This is the first year I haven't seen daily prizes listed. I was kind of wondering. Maybe they could give out those items listed in the window at the upper right as prizes... :]

Folk,

Thanks once again for the music. Kudos to the web team--in the past there have been several issues at the beginning of the month, but this time--everything works well and quickly. Nice job!

If only...

I went to college in this sleepy town and would have killed to see the band play there. Problem is - they never set foot in the city after a killer '72 show.

Considering the size of the state they played remarkably few concerts there.

Phil's bass is amazing on this version. Really spurs the band on to greatness.

Been Playing this fine game since 2011 (change name each year), and though it's been frustrating at times, and crazy easy at times, always fun!! Always interesting to see clues passed forward, though often guess too early (wrong guess, but know the right show before deadline). It's amazing how much easier it gets as you develop a method (listen to ENTIRE song, check dead sets, Archive, etc.) I think this combo only done 4-5 times. Certainly not in it for the bling- though I want main prize!
ps- Seeing as I'm working in Bulgaria currently and new songs come out at 10am here, one would think I would have a HEAD start, but woefully not the case (as I listen to the 2012 30 days). Peace to all!

I have got them all right so far, except the first one, the Shakedown. I didn't know it was happening till the 2nd day, but I have guessed all right (after the Shakedown) so far!

Peace love & the Grateful Dead!

Batting .1000 here, too. Assuming on the Cleveland thing as well. In four years I have only gotten five wrong (missed the unlisted Black Peter last year, but was only a week off--nailing the Cream Puff War last week made up for it). Have yet to winning anything, but that's okay. When I travel long distance I have an 19 hour set list in my iPod!

Assuming they accepted Cleveland Public Hall for Sugaree I have gotten them all so far. I think last year I was 29 for 30 but still didn't win anything. Oh well. I still look forward to playing everyday.

Well done! So going back to last year, you are 39 out of the last 40....hats off to you. It would be nice to win something but I agree with you that even if I don't, I look forward to it every morning. Cup of coffee w/ the Dead

Wow! Maybe the best version I heard of BP
And I think I don't have this show in my own "Vault".... Astounding, quintessential Jerry/Dead. To me it sounds late 71 with Godchaux...

Yep. An easy near base ick one for today. Thought I posted this earlier this a.m., but failed to 'save'.

Jerry's voice

That was my first clue. I've never listened to this show all the way through, but I will say that there's a monster hiding in plain site in the second set!

good day and grate day

so some have asked- since i won a few days back- what i won and other questions, ( i just realized there is an email portion to this website so if i missed your email forgive me) but wanted to say i haven't got word of winning any prize for being the daily winner, and since the rules this year are quite confusing , at least to me, i don't know if there are prizes other than the grand prize. so i don't know. if any other person who has won this year would like to post their ideas or experience that would be helpful to me, and others perhaps. and maybe some admin will see this and let me know if i'm supposed to contact someone or do something besides jump around and yell i won, which i did, but it didn't make anything happen. except my dog ran out of the room.
by the way thanks to those that sent the nice congrats and i wish you all all the best of luck yourselves. (except i want to win the grand prize so back off of that)
peace ya bunch of hippies!
