whatever it is from.
not sure i have the resources for this one
I believe I also lack the resources on this one but I do like that old classic organ … there's a lot there: burgeoning tunes to be and old classics in the undertones (Eyes, The Eleven, Dark Star, Death Don't have No Mercy …). Still digging
It is that time of year again to download, download, download. I am always amazed at how much music is given to us with the November release of the 30 Days of Dead. This year is over 6 hours! Thank you so much!
While I hate searching for studio jams, I sure do enjoy listening to the many tasty nuggets out there. I'm giving up today, however. I'll throw out a wild guess. This jam sounds like possibly TC is in the mix; 2 drummers; can't hear any Pig (unless that's him on the organ). Anthem or Aoxo sesh? Good luck, all!
Time to try a new browser ...
The last couple of days have been super easy due to there being a handful or less of shows with those songs contained. My mind is boggled on how/where to find an unknown studio session jam like this. Would love some guidance, maybe tomorrow if it contains a spoiler...
but super interesting w/ that early Eyes Emaj7 and clear 11 teases
This selection has caused me to discover some really surprising and delightful studio outtakes, but I can't find anything remotely like this. I think I know what year this is, but who knows for sure?
Once I saw the name I knew it would be a rough go, but wow. Congrats to whoever gets it, please post your process. Great track, and it led me to “Stage Banter: the Beatles ain’t here.” God I love their banter.
Thursday the 28th
The info is not on the pages that I can find.
Kind of annoying, really. Can't they keep the link on the home page, or is moving merchandise the only purpose?
Landover, MD, Capital Centre
July 29, 1974
Took me awhile to find it.
Yeah, the 30DoD link is not currently on the main www.dead.net page. But you can go directly to the main 30DoD page via:
You can find pretty much everything there.
The "Comments" section on that page shows ALL comments for the 30 days, e.g., right now it shows "740" comments. If you want to see comments for any previous date, scroll to the bottom and click on the past day #. To see only comments for the current date, be sure you're on the main 30DoD page and click on "Post Comments Here."
No idea, there is some cool outtakes in March of 75 though.
What we know?
can we all speculate that this is between 67' and 69'?
It's not on setlists/relisten/archive
feels late 68-to-early 70 to narrow it down...
this search will be unquestionably futile...
also, there is no possible way those 1966 tunes are from 2/23/66 as someone quite accurately pointed out they sound almost identical to 7/16 & 7/17 ie waaaaay more refined & tight, so i'm calling complete shenanigans on that one, dl2...
although fun trying to figure it out
Well, I started looking for where I might find this studio session and listened to a couple of interesting song rehearsals, but I soon realized the futility.
I LOVE this jam!
I, for one, will gladly give up my chance to enter for some swag if we can get to hear more of such choice gems from the vaults. Think about it: there is so much grate stuff on the Archive to go through and, yeah, it's nice to hear it remastered and in perhaps better sonics, but it's already out there. This, on the other hand, is priceless - a beautiful, entrancing jam (I think late '60s also) that we've never heard before - and what sweet jam it is!
Dave, if you're monitoring these comments (and I'm sure I speak for many others as well): I'd like another helping!
I love the contest and getting to check out concerts that I may not have bothered to peruse before, but please keep digging out these special moments and previously unavailable material. This, for me, is the cherry on top of this year's journey. Thank you!
I agree! I'm with Stones. This is such a beautiful jam and I'd easily give up a chance in the contest to hear more like it.
So Dave, if you're listening, please know that this is the icing on the cake this year. THANKS!! Keep ones like this coming!
Read through this twice no luck.
Did I miss something?
Unknown Studio, Unknown City, Unknown Date.
at least this search, if it really is a search rather than a poking around, took me to a few fun places.. in reference to believe it or not- found a studio outtake 6-1-88. cool to hear since not to familiar with that particular tune.
OFF TOPIC- THE WELL- ACE OF CUPS- BOB WEIR SINGING-GREAT TUNE
Been trying as much as I could, and came to the same conclusions many of you sleuthy heads did, lacking sources, guessing time frame, guessing the one or two albums they might have been working on, picking up on the organ and two drummers, and heard one eleven jam that had some aural synchronicities, but nothing definitive. I took a stab in the dark on a date and questionable venue that seems to have no presence on the web. It's like shaking a Christmas present the night before Christmas, or Hanukkah if you prefer, and having to wait until tomorrow to unwrap it and see what it is.
Good luck, y'all...guessing pre-Hartbeats but we will see!
So my process is one of listening to the song to try to get a general range of years. My Dead palate is not nearly as good as a Geo or some of the other talented people here, but I do my best. Then I look through Archive for shows, recordings that might fit the bill (sequence, time, etc) and get it down to a few listenables and go to work. Listen, comparison; listen, comparison. Once I get it to a guess, I note my necessary facts and shoot my shot. One of the issues I had today, was even once I had a shot to take on the dark, a studio in SM, CA that they recorded in multiple times in the late 60s, that was not an option, even though we know they recorded there.
Wow, 9/1/68 was a busy day for the Dead! According to DeadBase they played two gigs at two separate venues in the afternoon and at night on this day and still had time to make it into the studio for a jam and recording session?...truly amazing! Sounds like Tom Constanten on keys but he didn't play live with the band until 11/23/68 (although he did record with the Dead in the studio before he played any live shows). Cool jam though and new to all of our ears I do believe...thanks for sharing the vault with us!
