I've listened to this time-honored trilogy in previous years' 30 DoD searches. Love the extended intro into Help. Happy Friday finding, everyone!

Oh man, today's hint made it TOO easy.
But thanks anyway, so I wouldn't spend hours trying to figure it out. :)

I haven't posted much this year, there's so much going on in my life. I just wanted to hop in remind everyone that there are backups of all the 30 Days since we started in 2010. Search my user name and you'll find the site. I've actually got four correct so far this year, but haven't been able to spend much time searching. I love November, though! Happy Friday everyone.

Back up again. The problem disappeared like a slipknot.

Don't know what's going on. When it is down the Archive sends you to its Twitter page for more info but there is no info. There must be a ton of Heads all hitting the Archive at the same time! I better search while the searching's good. Meanwhile, I sure hope there's Help On The Way for the Archive.

The Archive came back up for 5 minutes and I got it. I was able to nail the time period pretty tightly since my first show ever was exactly one week before this one.

That was bad. Think I got up way too early today. I even knew what the next song to be played was you could here it a little at the end of Franklins.

I was there too...I think they were trying to make this show special it being Easter Sunday. It sounds like Jerry blew his voice out during the CR&S cause by Don't Ease his was loosing his voice.

For several reasons this night is interesting due to some exceptions to the rules that there are no rules. Listening for an intro where the lead in music was short little statements from the band members and no presence of the usual blast-off starting chord hit. That's what clinched it for me. As others have mentioned.... I'm just waiting for the almost impossible studio rehearsal and or sound check offering one of these days. That will break my 100% average. All in the fun! Enjoy!

is the mantra of the day. 24:24 of solid jamming. The last 5 minutes or so of the Franklin's jam are worth the price of admission for me!

And in today's case, one really suits the other. Have fun and don't forget to listen to the music play.

Well, I started a year off but got here pretty quick. Interesting smooth entry into Help, tight Slipknot and a rollicking Franklin's (loving Jerry's slick pickin' as well as the jamming). Only thing: this download is consistently a bit slower than any of the Archive versions I tried, making it impossible to sync for more than a few seconds - although that leads to some pretty trippy effects as they phase around and away. In another time's forgotten space? Oh well, got confused, I'll just listen to the music play.

Lucky draw for one of us 'lifers'. :-) Thanks Hornsby.
My very first win in approx. 290 correct entries. All the years combine, and melt into a calendar.
Thank you Dave and Rhino.

I know the inventory is limited, but how about some Pig.... please!

Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
Watch lights fade from every room.
Bedsitter people look back and lament,
Another day's useless energy spent.
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one.
Lonely man cries for love and has none.
New mother picks up and suckles her son.
Senior citizens wish they were young.
Cold-hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colours from our sight.
Red is grey and yellow white,
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion.

A tad of a Rocky start, but I had it zeroed in on two years, so it did not take me long. "Listen to the music play!"

DeadBase shows a different venue than the relisten and setlist sites..didn't check it until after I submitted my entry.

It's a day after a Dave's Pick. That's three days in a row of shows I attended. Woo hoo.

Phil's playing on the intro to Help is what gives this away from the outset. He goes really low for a fat bomb that the board tape can't pick up. It's a show I've admired for a long time. A little manic in places, but the energy is very high. Once you find it, listen to the Neumann U87 AUD recording to hear how big and deep Phil really went on the intro. Might've even cracked the bell in Franklin's Tower.

Yep, I saw that too. So....even though I know the show, I'm letting it ferment a bit until I flip a coin & submit my answer.

This makes the 3rd time this year for venue dilemmas when you include both Hartford tracks. Those were a bit more likely to turn out as they did, as "Hartford Civic Center," instead of just "Civic Center" which was one of the options.....and in fact, if my previous years' tracks are correct, "Civic Center" was an official name given for that very venue in another 30 DoD. Ah well, really doesn't matter to me since the joy is in the fun of the search and the fricking amazing music and the gift of 30 DoD we get each year! Thank you, Dave, and all involved!!

You had to listen to the audience for things to match up right. Getting by with a little help from my friends

I got to go with what's printed on the stubs and DaPs release. Make's the most logical sense, right? Otherwise, it's all a farce and what's the point of going on.

Submit your answer, choose a venue name and you are entered. They'll choose a winner that gets the date and city state and any of the venue names that are in question if they list alternate wordings of a venue name. Their listing of the venue the next day does not mean the venue name is "right" nor that other names chosen are "wrong".

Always used Internet archives to comparative listen, been a problem last to days , correctly guessed yesterday with out Archives, today again I guessed based on length of the song(s) & then surfed the net and discovered Relisten & confirmed my 2 correct( I’m hoping?) guess without comparison playback

Yes, relisten is a great resource. But I would be careful about looking at timings. They can be deceiving. The dead dot net site here can have a longer or shorter time length of a particular song or songs' medley than say the other sites out there. Both here and the other sites might have 2-3 minutes of crowd at the end of a track or tuning at the beginning etc. Archive is great when it's working because you can look at that spectra or whatever it's called and see the wave of the volume level throughout a track. Flatlines at beginning or ending indicate that old "dead air" haha

Those looking for tips/tricks would do well to read the above post by dougbr1ne. Good stuff here and many thanks for sharing.

And I almost forgot to say CONGRATS! to
m-skjellyfetti for being the big winner yesterday. Sure is nice when fortune finds you from time to time. Who's next?

If you're keying in on the on the open then be sure to check the clues with Archive, relisten will only help with matching the Franklin's close. That's all I got but a mini streak after an bad start this year.

Enjoyed the heck out of these years with a lot of special Grateful Dead experiences.

...it's my Birthday! How nice they picked one of my favorite combos of all time. I love this jam regardless of what decade they chose to play it.

I identify with comments where people started and went the wrong direction. 1st time for me but frustrating! Once I put my thinking cap on (large aluminum funnel) it all came together. We've been treated to great sound for the most plate. Still scratching my head as to why "Cold rain and Snow" has now been played only 2 times now (3 times in 31 days).

Really dig the sound of the keys from this year. Sounds very L.A. Woman to me. A little hint for you all...the recording given here has significantly less crowd noise than the version I found on Archive! That keyboard noodling still cuts through it all, though! Good luck and have fun!

I woke up thinking about what music to play and immediately thought of Seventh Sojourn by The Moody Blues. Then I went to the computer first thing to check the emails and read all the comments on the Dead threads. Lo and behold the comments were about the passing of a Moody Blues band member. Cue the Twilight Zone music. I'm tuned in today.
We seem to be on Help/Slip/Frank again today. Will check back later.
