"Jack-A-Roe" debuted in 1977, and was a sporadic addition to the repertoire until it disappeared in 1985, seemingly for good. However, at the end of 1988, it returned and would be remain an important part of the setlist until 1995.

Nice start of the 30DOD. No crackle in Jerry's voice and Weir's guitar is a dead giveaway. SWEET!

It's about time you set these up as .flac, but this mp3 is only 128kbps - a bit of a comedown from the 320kbps of previous years!

Great idea. Love Jack-a-Roe. Why can't non-USA Deadheads take part in the competition?

I don't want to be looking a gift horse in the mouth here. But. is this the new definition of high quality? Oh, how our standards have crumbed! (dramatic enough?) :-) Thanks Dead.net!

I knew that 30 Days of Dead was on the way, but the way 2020 has been, you never know what might happen. I woke up this morning and anxiously checked my inbox to see if there was an email about it, and YES, here we go again! Thanks so much for doing this every year, Dave! You've started a real tradition which a lot of us look forward to all year. Happy November all!

I agree with wilfredtjones. 320 to 128 is basically going from the highest to the lowest bit rate. I hope this was just a mistake and will be rectified.

This month couldn't come soon enough! Welcome back everybody. Is this a 1st time appearance for ol' Jack A Roe? More than one 1st appearance at play here.

This version of Jack A Roe made me think of being in college and driving down to this venue to watch these shows, I was pretty new to the Dead then but was hanging out with friends who only listen to the Dead. My indoctrination was going to class during the day, then the drive to the venue for many of the nights during this stint. Thanks for this trip down memory lane!

YEAH!! 3rd try about 10-15 mins. Right away I narrowed down to 2 yrs by JG vox & keys. And then the way the drummers hit the subtleties is different if you veer of to other years. Some excited loud audience member requests in the between song minutes that follow this song. And the band makes some vocalizations too not really audible. Including one member talking right at the end of Jack-A-Roe. That little bit may help you compare diff versions.

Don't read further... don't scroll down... I will not give away the answer I promise... just a comment....

They seem like this town/area on the 30 days contest.

Well you've given away the fact it's a Brent era show Doug 😃
I'm in the UK and I think I have this from Doug's clue about someone shouting out a song request after JAR has finished.
I mean,come on you won't get that in the first set mate 😃

Last year I only got to play a few days. I forgot to check to see who won on the last day I played. A few weeks later I got an email asking my address so they could send me a calendar. When I checked dead.net, there was my name as the winner. I have enjoyed my calendar all year. Thank you so much. I love this game.

Good to see the familiar faces? here. We've all been waiting for this since March, or maybe since 12/1/19! Odds of 11/3 selection being US Blues?

I'm with wilfredtjones and Jimson G, certainly appreciating all gifts in these 30 Days(!), but also hoping that this 128 bit file was a blip on the horizon and that files from here on out are 320s. T'would be much appreciated, Dave!

There were other years where some 128s slipped thru, but if my memory serves me well, the situation was corrected.

Ususally get 320kbps. This year only 128kbps. I won't bother this year. Email subject line I got said "Free Hi-Res Digital Downloads Every Day" I was hoping it was finally upgraded to FLAC. Instead quality has been downgraded. I know its a gift and thank you, but I don't do low grade 128kbps anymore.

To a great start. Hello again to each of you, and to all of you ' Usual Suspect's', that partake in this annual festival of Deadology.
As always, a Happy Birthday to D-Rae! Hope all is well with you considering all the storms that continue to invade in your region this season.

we use the same saying in my native idioma (on ne regarde pas les dents du cheval qu'on t'a donné)
O f course 320 Kb is better. Hoping "wiskey in the jar" for the 6th?
Thanks Dave for sharing all this good songs.

Nice, rolicking guitar. A first - both for 30DoD and for me (don't recall ever hearing this in a concert).
One problem (in addition to the bitrate issue): what's with the date entry? It pulls up a calendar for Nov. 2020 and I had to manually go back hundreds of clicks to get to the right month - and I messed up and hit return so inadvertently "entered" the contest before I had put in the complete date. Must be an easier way...??
Anyway, off into the sunshine. Enjoy y'all!

Hey! I remember that same situation in previous years about entering the date using the calendar.
The easiest solution I found is don't use the 'calendar.' Just type in the numbers for the date in the box that opens up. I think it's below the calendar, if I remember correctly, but I'm not looking at it now, so just look for it.
Hope this helps!

yeah bummer. if you click on the date entry part until the calendar goes away you can enter it manually instead of scrolling through all the years.

Wow. The sound quality went from 320 kbps bitrate to 120 kbps?? Ouch.

I thought you would at least maintain or improve to open source FLAC lossless as web bandwidth gets better.

Anyway, thanks for throwing decent quality free bones over the last years but I'll pass on low quality freebies.

Hey! The 'Unofficial 31 Days of Dead' starts on December 1st...after 30 DoD is over. Ed has done it every year for 10 years, so I suspect this year'll be no different. But it seems I never know until the last minute when he posts it. Look for info about it closer to the 30th of November. Meanwhile....enjoy the ride.

Happy days of dead. Last 2 Dave's picks and today's show were all shows I was at!

I hope the 128 bit was a mistake.

    128 kbps??

    Hello? I know this is a FREE initiative and all, but what happened to 320 kbps?? That's what was presented in years past, and is the only acceptable mp3 file quality. Please reclaim this. P.S. Love the cover art. P.P.S. Tommy Bolin forever.
