Stabbing in the dark

Yeah, this one is another tricky one. Theres a couple of dates that match the song pretty well, but they're a little different then this one. The further you go away from these shows, the more the song changes. Going back is the same situation. I think the answer is there, just can't get a total confirmation on it. At least until tomorrow.

I give up

Well my guess is in. I'm really excited to see the answer tomorrow. I think I made about the best educated guess I could and did a whole lot of listening and reading to get there. If I don't have the exact date and venue, I'm really close. I'll be happy if I'm at least in the rough ball park.

I just got that feeling that you get after listening to many a close call and then you nail it.

Too bad even 30 days copy is as bad as the others.

However.... this is such a scorching! high energy early Performance I could listen to it all day! Wait a minute.... I did:D Yeah............

Stumped and searched evrything

So I am really stumped on this one. I've listened to the version posted many times over, even dissected each part for nuances. None of the versions released match this one exactly. I've found 2 dates that are very close, but just a little different in a few places. Also, those 2 dates sound like identical recordings to me. I feel like both of those dates are using the same recording so one must be wrong. Just not certain which one. At this point I'm 99% sure it's close to one of those 2 dates and possibly even one of them if only new which one was using the repeat recording. Either way, I love exploring this early stuff and searching through it, but I think he threw a curve ball at us.

Let it play a little longer

perhaps if you try to synch when the drums first appear on both this track and archive you will find a match....

Continuing problem

This is not a single-incident thing. Try to re-download the first twenty-six days...same thing!

I'm not sure why Dead.net is not even acknowledging this, let alone fix it.

It's just too easy...

Take today's clue - apply to only early studio album with extensive live recordings mixed with studio efforts.

Go to said album's Wikipedia page - read until you are told
the date of today's tunes.

Thanks to other clue givers early this month - you made it even better.

Thanks Dead.net - Thanks Deadheads - I love you all and wish you
blissful peace.

Easy?

I thought that was the case--that it would be easy given the few shows to select from--except all are close, but none exact. And the Wikipedia entry is not entirely correct (Gasp!)--the is no record of the Dead playing in Seattle on Jan 26 and 27. And several days mentioned therein do not appear in the Archive--seems like it may need to be another stab in the dark. Good luck

In any case it has been fun doing this treasure hunt--a great and creative period for the band

"no record"?

b1ackpeter -

There seems to be "no record," other than some date-labeled circulating tapes, of shows in Seattle on Jan 22 & 23 1968, but clear record of two nights at Eagles Auditorium in Seattle on Jan 26 & 27 '68. - See www.deadlists.com for all four of theses dates to get the pertinent info (and a link, on the pages for Jan 26 & 27, to the poster for those two nights by George Hunter). And the 26 & 27 Eagles Auditorium shows are listed among the live-recordings dates on the back liner of the Anthem of the Sun lps (including its 1971 remix). None of the tunes listings that I've seen for any of these dates give an Alligator>Caution sequence (but hardly any tunes appear listed for Jan 26 or 27).

Regardless of where today's 30 Days selection comes from - do we think the guys were having a good time at this gig?

P.S. - A few minutes after posting this, I got the download via the 30 Days graphic link midway down the home page; but it's the 192-kbs file. (After having tried two or three times - all this in Safari - on the download button of others of today's page that I got to from the prematurely-posted "27th" link, but nothing happened from those; and trying, just now, the download button on the first page I had opened for listening and posts-reading over an hour ago [gotten via the top, wide graphic link off the home page], nothing comes from that.)

Finally Download, but 192.

Is there really a 320 version of Day 27 out there? Chastason's link worked, but its 192. Finally Chrome downloaded (iMac) but I get the same 48.3 192 file. Better than no file...I guess.

there are a number of shows that fit the clue, the sequence, and maybe even what follows. Sadly, they're not on the archive...

If it's there, I'm sure not hearing it.

Downloading and venue

After numerous attempts I was finally able to download this file successfully --didn't really do anything different and tried the various suggestions posted. No real explanation for the issue.

This looked like a gimme at first--but I admit I am fairly perplexed--it sounds like a miss-mash of different shows (not unlike Anthym)--with one show seeming to be it, then hitting a discrepancy, and so forth. Just not that many candidates out there.

Nonetheless it is a rocking good version

Download issue

chastason's link worked for me on a Mac, but not with Safari. I needed to change browsers to Chrome. Then I clicked on chastason's link while holding the Control button. Select "Save Link As..." then I saved to my Download folder. Then I moved it manually into iTunes. Thanks chastason and rrot and everyone else.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Download fix

I went into the graphic on the left of the 30 Days of GD music to check the correct answers for the last two days. When trying to download Alligator no luck.

HOWEVER I went back from the Day 27 download link to the 'Features Link' then to the main page by clicking on the head banner at the top of the page above the Features links, and then clicked on the '30 days of Dead Music' in the lower right hand side of the home page then was able to successfully downloadd.

But less than 32 for what we're looking for? I think I have ample clues to pin this one down if I heard it, but I just can't find it on archive.

Downloads

Out of Curiosity, I've been trying off and on to Download. I successfully downloaded about 4 hrs. ago, then after seeing comments about problems continuing, tried again without success. Out of about 10 tries since, twice have been able to download. You got me, but worth trying off and on, as it really is a great thing to have a copy of!

Now I see a Mirror--

I Should note that I'm working in Bulgaria for the 2nd time during 30 Days of Dead (here also 2011), and if I can download from here, then what can I say!
This show was almost 1 year before my first, though I visited SF in 67 and 68, and saw a few shows, just not the Dead. Heard such cool things, that at 1st chance checked it out. Have never regretted!!!

27th Download Fail

I see some folks were able to download today's track but it's not working for me... oh well. I guess I'll try later and hope for the best.

I do appreciate this music every year but I'm glad we're not paying for it since it's not a reliable service.
