30 Days of Dead

30-days-of-dead-2018

It's that magical time of year again where we make miracles every day. Yessiree, 30 Days Of Dead is back!

As a token of our appreciation for making 2018 an epic year, we're giving away a high-quality 320Kbps MP3 download every day this month. That's 30 days of unreleased Grateful Dead tracks from the vault, selected by Dead archivist David Lemieux! Intrigued? We're also going to put your knowledge to the test and give you a chance to win prizes, not to mention bragging rights.

Here's the drill:

You know your Ables from your Bakers from your C's, but can your finely tuned ears differentiate the cosmic "comeback" tour from a spacey 70's show? Each day we'll post a free download from one of the Dead's coveted shows. Will it be from that magical night at Madison Square Garden in '93 or from way back when they were just starting to warm it up at Winterland? Is that Pigpen's harmonica we hear? Brent on keys? Step right up and try your hand all November long.

Guess the venue and date correctly and you'll be automatically entered to win the prize of the day - a 2019 Grateful Dead Wall Calendar. Each day a winner will be selected at random, so take your time and make your best guess! Answer correctly, and you will also be automatically entered for our PACIFIC NORTHWEST '73-'74 THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS boxed set.

Get started here.

    Wow! I first got on the bus…

    Wow! I first got on the bus in August of 1972 and my first show was 3/19/73. After that run I never again went to the Nassau Coliseum; I hated that place. The next time someone asks me why I spent so much time, money and energy seeing the Dead I'll play today's version of Crazy Fingers. If that can't explain it nothing can.

    Reminder Unofficial 31 DoD starts Tomorrow!

    I posted this yesterday, but just a reminder that the "Unofficial 31 Days of Dead" starts tomorrow if you want to keep listening for a while longer. ;) FYI, here's some info:

    The Unofficial 31 Days of Dead is back again this year!

    Our fellow traveler, Ed, puts this together every year after 30DoD is over. Starts Dec 1st. No contest, or search, or hunt, but he offers another month of awesome downloads & camaraderie to help us carry over from the fun of 30 DoD. Here's a link and the scoop from his post:

    “Annnnnnnnd, we’re back. Hello, friends! As the “Official 30 Days of Dead” draws to a conclusion I am getting excited to begin posting my daily selections for the Unofficial 31 Days of Dead in December as I have done in past years.

    In case you are unfamiliar with the “Unofficial 31 Days of Dead” here is a description of what it's all about: . . . “

    Thanks again

    Thanks for another fun November. I didn't get to play as obsessively as I have in the past, but it was still great on the days I got to play. See ya next year.

    Smilin' ear to ear

    Thanks again DAVE, and GD family & all my fellow travelers for another stellar 30 Days of Dead! I always smile more in the month of November than any other because of you. Thanks for that gift!
    Peace, love and light to all!

Yesterday's answer...
Springfield, MA, Springfield Civic Center Arena
This terrific version of He's Gone was played just before Europe '72 was released, and although by this time it was often used as a launching pad for other big jams, here it's played a beautiful stand-alone rendition
