30 Days of Dead November 15
------ TURN OFF FUTURE & FORM -----
It's with deep appreciation and gratitude for you, the fans, that we'll be giving away an MP3 download every day this month. That's 30 days of unreleased Grateful Dead tracks from the vault, selected by Dead archivist and producer David Lemieux! Intrigued? We're also going to put your knowledge to the test and give you the chance to win some sweet swag from the Dead.
Guess the venue and date correctly and you'll be automatically entered to win our Grand Prize - a prize pack featuring our 2014 releases, merch, and more.
just got my show guess in barely before midnight.
it was easy if you work backward.
"I was having a high time
Living the good life" Lovin the 30 Days!!
Jerry at his best . His vocals are never better then this year. Great version of high time
More '76 releases, please!
This is such a sweet version of High Time! Jerry and Donna are like butter on this one. Not too hard to find either. A much appreciated gift after yesterdays mind bogle. It took me forever to get my answer and I wasn't 100% without being able to hear it. I enjoyed every minute of it though, and pulled it off. Can't believe its half way over. Just got my order in for the new 4/18/70 release today too. Thank you!!!
As far as I can tell, based on today's clue and the line up of the band on the song, there is only one possible show it could have been! Went to that show to listen just to be sure and sure enough that was it.
Based on the line up of the band, I see about a baker's dozen shows it could be. Let's wait for tomorrow, but curious how the line up pointed to only one show for you.
So much congratulations to you, Jack o Roses! I spent a lot of time on that one and am trying again today! Im excited for you!
Keep on keepin on: we'll see if the hint for today was appropriate. came & WENT....
was it the (2nd to) last time they played this song with ...?
Got back in and everything's fixed , Not being as tech savy as some of our younger friends here just figured I'd go out enjoy the fall day even at 35 degrees ,Come back this afternoon and lo and behold all is right and we're back in the good life again , A big Thanks to all you computer people for getting this back on for us all ,This has been a favorite since we jumped on that bus so many short years ago in 70 ,Thanks again and Peace to us all ,we need it .
Thanks, rrot and the two others who posted the correct? redirect URL for the High Time download. And (as always) thanks to marye for coming along w/what was actually up with the download problems.
What I downloaded myself (at 320 kbps), after marye had noted that things seemed fixed, however, came from:
Now, if you can stand to follow this—
.tk is the top-level domain for Tokelau (a territory of New Zealand). Dot TK registers domain names and apparently administers their use under the .tk top-level domain. The Wikipedia article “.tk” has info that seems pertinent to what problem may have occurred here on dead.net, such as: “…if a domain's redirect target does not work (even temporarily) the domain is taken offline. If a domain violates any of these terms, it is replaced by a Sedo ad page, and no beforehand warning is given.”
The download button's linked URL, http://www.dead.net/day15_r6c5qus_hightime.mp3, should presumably? have redirected to the one that rrot and others posted here, http://rhino.edgeboss.net/download/rhino/gdead/30days/2013/day15_r6c5qus_hightime.mp3, instead of to the ad pages or commercial sites and what-all other mayhem others reported.
(Wikipedia says that Sedo (Search Engine for Domain Offers) is a domain-name and website-marketplace and domain-parking provider.)
That all IS too much detail for ME to want to fiddle and ponder over anymore, at the moment. But this Web-connected stuff isn't very simple.
Thanks for fixing the download link - works like a charm :)
I did the workaround earlier & got a 192kb mp3 & now the system is preventing me from using the button again to get the higher kb version. Can this be corrected or reset for everyone ?
What a mess. TIA if you can do the reset.
A do over request please, thanks.
Cool, it just worked again for me, thanks.
2 or 3 clicks? Really? I worked on this for way to long. Then just when I thought I had it, as I was putting my entry in the phone rang, and I think I put in the wrong date. Can I have a do-over? Like go back to bed and start the day over?
Yes,you may start the day all over again. Cheers!
I start over again every single day! Sometimes I really need it...
Good job and congrats Jack o Roses.
I just need to say how much I enjoy not only this contest but the people who are on here. It is so heartening to know that this community is so alive and well.
Peace to you all.
& Peace be with you & yours as well
Got today's music through the work-around. Thanks for the help, folks.
FWIW the normal channels are still messed up.
A pox on those hacker finks!
Download is now up and running. Instant Karma will come down hard on the hackers!
The link works now, and gives a 320 kbps file.
The work-around was a 192 kbps file.
I'm not guessing that many, but am having fun finding some shows, especially nice auds, which I haven't heard before.
What did the raven say to the tres hombres? A noob like me got this in 3 clicks, it is easily done. Good luck
Short version, a service that was part of all this ceased to function and started redirecting traffic, to ill effect.
We think this is now fixed. Please report adverse experiences and alternate realities.
It's always something! Thank you for your patience.
No, Thank you for doing this every November! You make ton's of Deadheads totally happy every year and wishing you all the good Karma for this.
I just tried it again and it worked!!!
Thanks to those, who fixed it
...and all the worst to those hackers
My anti-virus software (Trend Micro) will not let me download High Time. Said this is a dangerous site. Have had no problems with previous downloads. Help
So, these A-holes have nothing better to do than hack a peaceful community...awesome. I am constantly disappointed by people in general.
Don't be that way...
I too have tried to download today's song (High Time) and been redirected to a variety of external sites. Just wanted to let you know. Also, I'm using Safari 7.0.
Thank as always for the great music!
I tried downloading "High Time" using both Firefox and Safari and in both browsers the download is redirected to various sites. Major bummer as all other days and in previous years the downloads went smoothly.
I'll try the Rhino link posted.
Good luck and counting down to Mexico!
Someone seems to have hacked the download link. Since today all download links on the 30 days pages lead to dubious pages. Because I´m a german user this may happen only here in Europe...
Would be nice if that could be fixed again - the first 14 entries were of the 30 days were great, thanks a lot for them.
I'm getting hacked too when trying to download file (as of 1130 EST)
Thanks for this one! Great era.
When attempting to download today's tune, Nov. 15 at 7:55 AM PST I am being randomly redirected to commercial websites. I'll try again this afternoon.
High Time is not downloading. Error message on Chrome browser is
day15_r6c5qus_hightime.mp3The server could not find the file.
http://www.dead.net/day15_r6c5qus_hightime.mp3 does not open with error message
The page you requested does not exist. For your convenience, a search was performed using the query day15 r6c5qus hightime mp3.
I know all y'all been saying how easy today was, and I got it on my first choice from archive.org. However apart from a rough guess at the date/period, that was pure luck...
ps: hackers suck
After playing this for most every day since it started, I won! Hang in there folks.
What I (& others) learned yesterday is that the hints are sometimes very helpful as is the past logic of the choices (CPW- that is). In my selection yesterday, I had already pretty much followed the logic explained by others.
Peace & Love,
PS Yesterday was the 1st time I commented in the game too- perhaps audience participation matters as well :)
(Running Firefox 25.0 on Mac OSX 10.7.5) Every time I try to download today's "High Time", I get re-directed to an Amazon page. It has worked the last 13 days with no problems.
Anyone else having issues?
ME TOO ON CHROME, FIREFOX AND OPERA BROWSERS. FIRST 14 DAYS WORKED FINE.
The download page is NOT working, it immediately starts loading SPAM. Got a warning from McAfee that the page was being redirected...
Trouble with the download is just me or a lot of people and is any other sites affected
Has today's link been hijacked?
Trying to download Today's Song [High Time]and I am directed to another site that is not recommended by my computer. "Red Flags" Hopefully Grateful Dead will get this fixed. Beware
Constantly re-directed to a variety of sites.....
I'm having the same issue. I can't download with out being redirected.
BTW...my Loose Lucy from day 13 is 192kbps. Anyone else?
....was 3-22-72. The archive and the etree database only show 2 songs circulating...BUT...I have sirius on my t.v. and used to dvr the live concert broadcasts and jot down the dates and setlists in a notebook. Since I no longer have the same dvr box I no longer have the shows saved. So I decided to flip through the notebook for shits n grins and....Lo and Behold there was 3-22-72 the whole show. So we definitely have something to look forward to....right, Dave?!? haha...on another note....Instant Karma's gonna get YOU, hackers!!!!
Sorry to have missed today's download... the link appears to have been hacked. Hopefully someone gets it and posts it on a more functional site.
