30 Days of Dead

30-days-of-dead-2018

As far as miracles go, November is bountiful. That's right, we're making miracles every day of the month and hoping to fire up your trusty synapses while we're at it.

Each day, we will be giving away an unreleased Grateful Dead track from the vault, selected by Dead archivist David Lemieux. And we're going to put your knowledge to the test with a chance to win prizes, not to mention bragging rights in the community.

So let's get to it, shall we?

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 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 2020 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 to win the Grand Prize - a copy of our SOLD OUT Blu-ray GIANTS STADIUM 1987/1989/1991 boxed set.

Hint:
As we wrap up 30 Days Of Dead 2019, we wanted to end with the most classic of classic Dead sequences…

    Transigent?

    Ha ha now that you mention it, it does sound like he sings that sometimes...although it's not a word. I suspect he's simply not pronouncing transitive clearly. 'Transitive nightfall of diamonds' is so trippy!!

    1968 Studio Jam

    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!

Yesterday's answer...
Unknown, Unknown, Studio Sessions
In mid/late 1968, the Dead entered the studio to record what would be their third studio album. They recorded to 8-track tape, but later in 1968, into 1969, when they had access to Ampex's new 16-track machine a larger batch of new songs, they scrapped these sessions in their entirety and re-recorded to 16-track. This Jam came out of those sessions.
Yesterday's Winner...
sorry, no winner found
