30 Days of Dead

I'm looking for the 30 Days of Dead from earlier years. Can someone direct me to where I might find the downloads?

More of this year please!!!

They can release many things from this year that would please me. Audio & video. Bring it on please! This was nice. But boy would they take Terrapin & whatever came next even further in the not too distant future. I attended the next show & had a great time. Did not know about any other goings-on that occurred until later.

Well........

I haven't guessed at today's offering yet but I just had to say........

THAT JAM is so sweet I wanted to reach through this computer screen, fill up a jar with some and lap it up with a big spoon.

This Show...

I got shut out of two shows over the years - just could not get a ticket. This show was one of them. The other 9/18/87.
Once you figure out this one - may I recommend listening to the opener from the previous night. It's a smokin' version of a tune featured recently in 30 days.

Turtles All The Way Down!!

What an epic jam to wake up to after Thanksgiving. I love the story behind this one. Robert Hunter writing the lyrics during a lightning storm. Jerry came up with the melody while driving across a bridge. And when they got together, they created one of the biggest crowd pleasers for many years to come. While listening to so many versions, it was fun to hear the audience reaction to key moments of the performance. Thanks Dave!!

Thankful

Just wanted to say thanks. Didn't get on yesterday due to cooking & hosting commitments, so just hearing yesterday's selection today... gorgeous! What a treat.

Took a while

but the door suddenly flew open ... this is one of my favorite songs ... and a fine rendition at that.

The Charlie Miller SBD has some mislabeled tracks -- I also thoroughly enjoyed the 11+ minute 'Crowd & Tuning' (-;

Love me some Charlie M.

Today was a real challenge. Sneaky Dave! Listened to a lot of great Terrapins. Love that 11 minutes of crowd and tuning. But in the long run, I guess it doesn't matter. Hope everyone survived Thanksgiving. Onward and Furthur!

Which of you to gain me, tell...

One of the clues is a Dead giveaway. I'm not complaining cause none of us has to read the comments before researching, but it kind of makes it too easy for the masses. The 30 Days is still an Inspiration, moving me brightly...

Fun one yet tough!

I don't know if it's intentional or not, but Dave's clue today lends some insight into what other song was played this set. I was all over the map w/ this one, mainly because the keyboards and keyboard vox were hard to discern for me at first. However, Jerry gets a little ahead of himself after "hold away despair" which was a nice little musical clue.

This post-Terrapin jam is one of the best I have ever heard! Lovin' it!

That was a tough one...

This show also featured songs that would appear seven months later on what Bill Kreutzmann called 'a Frankenstein of an album' in his book 'Deal: My Three Decades of Drumming, Dreams, and Drugs With the Grateful Dead'

Not a hint

This isn't a hint. It tells people which show it is. I had already found it, but this does pretty much ruin the game for those who look to the comnents for hints.

"Hint"

Sometimes it's perfectly ok to ignore the hint :-p

Totally a Hint

whether you judge it to be too easy of a hint or too hard of a hint is immaterial.
there are no rules here regarding leaving adequate hints. there are no hint police or board moderators to remove hints deemed illegal.

I remember several years back when some folks were leaving the exact answers in the comments section. The exact answer is when it is not a hint.

IMHO

It was not a simple hint....

... and just figuring out the hint took me a while. It wasn't a Dead giveaway by any means.
