30 Days of Dead

30-days-of-dead-2022

The rumors are true! Each day in November we give away a high-quality MP3 download. That's 30 days of unreleased Grateful Dead tracks from the vault, selected by Dead archivist and producer David Lemieux. Intrigued? We're also going to put your knowledge to the test and give you the chance to win some sweet swag from the Dead.

If you've been here before, jump right in with the link below. If you need a little refresher, here's how it all goes down:

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's 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 warming it up at Winterland? Is that Pigpen's harmonica we hear? Brent on keys? Step right up and try your hand all November long and win prizes while you're at it.

Guess the venue and date correctly and you'll be automatically entered to win the prize of the day - a 2024 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 HERE COMES SUNSHINE 1973 boxed set.

Today's Song
Hint:
Ending our 2023 30 Days Of Dead in style, we're leaving you with a some classic Dead from an important tour in Grateful Dead history

    Congratuations

    Hey John, Congratulations!

    Yes! A show I attended.

    Finally, a show I attended. I believe in all the years I've been doing the 30 Days, this is only the second 30 Days show I attended (though I missed at least the first year of 30 Days, so I could be wrong.) I live in Michigan, which in the day wasn't a hotbed of Deadhead life, so I didn't really know about touring Deadheads and only got to shows when the band came to Michigan, which wasn't even every tour. Thus, I didn't see very many Grateful Dead shows in the 23 years I was going to shows. But I was at the Easttown show! My third Dead show.

    Fun year

    Pretty generous selections this year, lots of days were less "songs" and more like "half sets". Too busy to play most days but enjoyed those magical times when I had the luxury of digging into setlists and trying to sync up the show audio with the download. You get that weirdly echoey quality and you know you've got it. Like having ears in two different parts of the arena. Thanks folks, 11 months to go...

    Re: Who won the box?

    It's never been announced in past years...

Yesterday's answer...
Oakland, CA, Oakland Coliseum Arena
As the 1980s rolled into 1990, the Dead's post-midnight set on 1/1/90 included this combination is a wildly dissonant "Victim Or The Crime" before heading into the first California "Dark Star "since 7/13/84
Yesterday's Winner...
