Thanx Merry Hintsters

I honestly relish the challenge to accrue the answer on my own, but today's "life" schedule limited my folly time, so big thank y'all for the cryptic clues; it took me a little listening across three years of Playin's, but I'm quite certain I found the correct match. What can we expect for tomorrow's surprise? Perhaps a...."And the whistle is screamin', Terrapin"?

The journey is the destination...

Wow, I've listened to a lot of versions of Playin' this evening. I found some great stuff I've never heard along the way. Even found and enjoyed some great banter and chatter I couldn't help but check out. Took quite a while but I loved every minute of it. Thanks again for doing this for all of us!

Love Playin' ...

This do sound like one drummer but when did Keith started to play electric piano? Perhaps in 1974?

Well, I can't think of a good guess. And even if I could I wouldn't spoil the fun for those who are eligible to participate in the contest.

I keep seeing that someone is yesterday's winner. Just wondering if there are daily prizes or if that person is just entered into the drawing?

I won the first year (2010)

I won the first year (2010) off of Sugaree...they picked one of the acoustic ones from 1980 and this was the only one not readily available at Archive.org so I picked it and won! This was back when they posted the new song at noon ET every day - first to get it was the winner. Lots of folks complained about that method and they moved to the random winner for the following years...

I think there's a daily prize for one individual and all who answer correctly are entered into the grand prize at the end.

Bob's comment

Bob's comment at the end of the tune did help a little. The first thing I did was check the show from 6/22/73 - Vancouver, but it turns out that Bob's a bit of a joker! Oh, and the clue below, "This one is Devilish" was a help as well.

I'm still surprised that in 3+ years of this we still don't have an epic Eyes yet...Maybe coming soon???

Woohoo

Woohoo, I got Cream Puff War right! They gave me no choice but to pick blindly without being able to hear the song first. PITB took me longer than I thought it would, but I finally found it. Love this game!

Cream Puff

It came down to 7/3 or 3/12 which appeared on a setlist confirmed by Dr. Lemieux himself. Because of a very subtle hint at the end of the recording I guessed blindly and got it right, too! Playin' was easy in comparison. Nailed it immediately.

Good guess for those who selected 7/3/66. The archived recording on LMA does not include, or mention, Cream Puff War.

Cannot download songs

Is anyone having an issue with downloading these mp3's? I will click on the link and the pop-up screen that says my download is starting just sits there and does nothing. Hopefully help is on the way!

on the bottom of my computer screen where I can choose to save it, save as... or cancel. Did you check to see if that happens on your system? I choose save as...so I can choose which folder it goes into.

What else is he saying and what does that suggest about the venue and what time of year it might be? Narrows it down to a handful. ARM also gave a great hint below.

Great sound mix on this one. About 7:30 it's sounds like someone hit's the pause button, but it's not on the one we have.

I'm not sure why, but when I figure this show out I think I'm gonna kick myself for not jumping right to it. Did you guys notice the cut around 7.5 minutes?

You'd think with all those lights...

One or two drummers? Outdoors or indoors (not as easy as you might think, halls in Europe are notorious for their conditions)? Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter? Keep playin' friends...

im gonna say between 72 and 74, if im right about one drummer, sounds like it but sometimes sounds like possibly two, then it would have to be 74 to 79, still so many!

30 days (day 5/day 6)

mine isnt showing yesterdays winner, i knew it had to be this there was only one that was even close and i knew it wasnt 10/7/66, so it had to be the only one i couldnt find on the archive, plus those first 4 or five sounded so similar, but the timing gave this away. tonights is just too vast, if someone only set up a site, where you could add variables to searches, like all over 17 min playin's, but how many of the 581, would that leave you with...could be a "in to drums/space, out of drums/space" with that clue! good luck! this ones gonna take awhile, im just gonna throw one out. peace!

easier than you think

you can narrow it down alot by who is actually playing/singing. while the time length is a good clue to use there's are some pretty major hints in the clip that make filtering through the lists a lot quicker and when you hit it you will know right away.
keep diggin and keep the faith
