Great ! Another year of 30 Day's In November with The Greatful Dead. Always great song selection, No Shipping ! No Tax No skipping disks. ( Tho Dr. Rino has always been great in making problems right ) No Crying --- They can't be gone already ? *&$%#@#%. Seasons Greetings to all Greatful Dead Familyers. Year after year we get a cover for 30 Day's Tho some like to make a cover both are great. What I ask for this year Please Please Don't make me have to make a back cover this year. The Song Titles, The Location, How long each song is. Starting Dec. 1st It sure would be great to see a down load of a back cover for 30 Day's in Nov. This Year. So Keep on Trucking - Cool Water.

Jamgol: yeah there's a 1-2 second cut just before 20:00. The sound is slightly brighter after.
I hope the Reply function gets fixed!

This year's artwork isn't as great quality as previous years, so I Photoshopped it a little bit. I upped the resolution from 75 to 300px per inch, and re-sized it from 750 to 1500px square. It's available at the link in my post below.

We are taking the plunge in quick this year! What a start for the first two days. Friendly reminder please do not post the answer. Subtle clues and hints are welcome for those that are stuck. Take a step back and enjoy the happy hunting for the right version! I was able to include a hint in my post yesterday, There might be one in this post as well!

Well, my confidence yesterday was severely misguided. I was off by a year and a half....I chose Winterland 2-22-74, based on that ending on Rider with Phil? Guess I need to get my ears checked and regroup....sigh...you folks who get these regularly amaze me!

Curious...What is the best resource for most here....DeadBase 50 & Archive?

I’ll keep marchin!

CaseyJanes, As someone who gets about 95% of these correct, I can tell you that Deadbase is definitely something you should be using. There are other resources if you don't have it available, but I enjoy getting it out and thumbing through it.

I don't, however, use Archive... well, at least not directly. I get it through https://relisten.net/grateful-dead/ Far easier and faster to navigate than archive's interface, but it does access the data from archive for you.

Happy hunting!

Help is on the Way! Here are some of tools I use. Once I have downloaded the song and gave it a listen or three, I determine the era. Usually can do this by the keyboards. Then I go to Deadlists http://www.deadlists.com/default.asp I love this site, it provides set list, timings and links to recordings on Archive. (Also has links to posters, tickets and laminates for that particular show) Also use Deadbase and I pick the brain one of my best friends, who is like a walking version of Deadbase. Hope this helps!

when i am syncing up the songs i sometimes eliminate those whose time is no where close...i like...relisten.net to play sync as it is real easy to use.
after 5 years
-my ears determine the era
-my softcover well used deadbase determine the possible shows
-relisten reduces the possibles thru times.
- the best part listening to several versions of amazing tunes looking for the right tempo and leads.
-sync it up
-put in my guess.

just tryng to give some guidance to those new or looking at different approaches.
caveat emptor: I am tone deaf, on bus since 70's, have about a 45-50% success rate at this, when i dont get lazy and follow all the steps.

this message is an fyi....just sayin

...but I like it. They had me over the barrel on this one. I wasn't sure if I would find it, but a little diligent searching and a surprise use of archive's search metadata helped a bit. I'm two for two so far -- the honeymoon stage isn't over yet!

This is my favorite Dead sequence of songs, really good late version - I guessed it was in '94.

**HINT ALERT. YOU MAY WANT TO SKIP THIS COMMENT IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO READ HINTS.**

Drum roll.... then Healy f-ing w/Bob. Love that intro.

Collecting GD cassettes, listening to shows, peoples stories/reviews & reading DeadBase etc fed another interest: geography. Towns, places, states. Sports venues w/ever-changing names. Nearby natural features involving certain elements (two in a row). Certain towns or venues they'd play almost every year. Then those out of the way places where the trip was so much part of the fun.

For those using Archive, you can click the little boxes on multiple years and use the search box to search a unique word in a song title within those years. You may get some results that involve your search word in the comments. But the shows with multiple versions that come up in the results are the ones to check out.

Some nice leads in a famous 2nd set Jerry song that comes up just a little bit later in this set.

After looking closer, I was only off by 4 months yesterday, not the 1.5 years I initially thought. That makes me feel a little better. Haven't had time to research this one yet. Thanks to all for the searching advice!

Grate News is that I just ordered my first DeadBase 50 from Amazon, and for a limited time they have 50% off using code DBTREAT50

Got the hardback copy for $45.00 with free Prime delivery!!!

Heres the link with the ad: https://deadbase50.net/

Where does everyone do their research to find the answer? My method of Youtube and Google is not working! It's great because it leads me down a rabbit-hole of Grateful Dead shows and history that I love learning, but.... It's not leading me to a good educated guess.

I would say by far your best place for research would be deadbase 50 or deadbase x

I just have a Deadbase and use Archive or my own collection.

Yesterday, I just figured it would be Pittsburgh, because, you know, obviously with what had been going on there. From the sound of the show it was obviously Keith + 1 drummer. There were only 2 Pittsburgh shows from '71 to '74 and one was April '71, which would have been Pigpen. So I just guessed the one Pittsburgh show. I knew it had a China > Rider. And this one was obviously cut to hide the next song, which was Around & Around at Pittsburgh.

If you really want to play hard, go to Archive and listen to your guess to see if it matches. Or sometimes people will drop hints, like I did for this one.

Also, according to the original rules for 30 Days, all of these are supposed to be unreleased. So if a show has been released, or if 30 Days has released it before, it should be out (though 30 Days has repeated a couple before).

@Jason Wilder: Good point. Someone on Day 1 thought the China>Rider was from one of two shows that have been released, but that cannot be if Dave and Company are following their previously unreleased promise. However you also are correct that that promise has been violated within 30 Days itself, a total of nine times in fact. (I provided the list of these last year.)

trio of songs from the Grateful Dead ever. A really peppy, uptempo version as well. Two words come to mind: Co. Caine! But I sure do like it!(the songs, not the powder).
Thanks again Mr. Lemieux and Dead.net!

Feel kinda sleazy about this, but over on Headyversion there is actually a category for "Take A Step Back". With that info and the timeframe (Jer's voice) made it an easy find.

I didn't love this one - not my tempo and, of course, the voices were shot. I just cannot fall for this year. But I got to see Bobby and the Wolf Bros. last night... Dark Star>Tomorrow Never Knows>Dark Start. Chills.

Always interesting to see the changes they made through the years. Not my favorite era though on this one.
