30 Days of Dead

30-days-of-dead-2022

We hope you've been brushing up on your live Grateful Dead and making room on all your devices because we're about to drop a motherload of high-quality MP3 downloads on you. Yes, there will once again be 30 days of unreleased Grateful Dead tracks from the vault, one for every day in November, selected by archivist and producer David Lemieux. The tracks are yours, no strings attached, but we hope you’ll stick around for the challenge and the chance to win some sweet swag from the Dead.

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 70s show? Each day we'll post a song 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? If you think you know, lob your answer in and you just might find yourself taking home our daily prize of a 2023 Grateful Dead wall calendar or the grand prize - both, YES BOTH - of this year's coveted boxed sets, Lyceum '72: The Complete Recordings [24LP] and In And Out Of The Garden: Madison Square Garden ’81, ’82, ’83 (Dead.net Exclusive)[17CD]!

Hint:
A unique set closer from a terrific tour

    Last Pick of the Month?

    Well, there's been no Fire.
    Aslo, no Sailor~Saint.
    That'd been a nice triple play there!
    Any time that combo ever happened?

    Yeah, I do believe I've got another one correct?! The Hint helped as they often do. I think the whistle gives it away and Dave's affinity for the month of April for a year that I consider to be Donna's best. Most pairings of Playin' were preceded with Terrapin in `78, not this time.
    ThanX Dave!

    Yeah I believe a .45 would definitely leave a mark. I've always wondered just what she would have done had he refused her offer.
