30 Days of Dead

30-days-of-dead-2020

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 2021 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 June 1976 boxed set.

Hint:
A perfect way to send people home after a wonderful night of music, or 30 days of great songs…

    Yes. OKC from 1973 is a Dick's Picks release.

    Can't remember which one.. 19?

    Thanks! And request.

    Thanks for another real good time! I hope to see at least one Michigan show next year - all but two Grateful Dead shows I attended were Michigan shows, and I think there's only been one Michigan entry so far in all the years of 30 Days (the other two shows I saw were Fillmore West in July '71 and (I think) Chicago Amphitheatre in winter '73, and I don't think either of those have a 30 Days tune either). But even if you don't do that, I've enjoyed all the 30 Days so far and I'll enjoy the 2021 edition, not complaining, just requesting.

    Box set winner?

    Anyone??.....Beuhler??
    Not me so far.
    Best of luck to all. Have a happy and peaceful new year everybody. Let's collectively project our grateful healing mind beams outward for the next year, share the music, and keep hope that we and others may live to see another tour!

    as so many others here have…

    as so many others here have said, we are so immensely grateful for these wonderful songs and the opportunity to relive some of our fondest moments over the years. Thank you all for another outstanding November. And may 2021 bring you all much good health and happiness.

    Bringing the love

    Thanks fellow Jeff! I mean, I'm fine with JAPDs, they help keep things honest. So let me say that I honor and love the essential JAPDs in our community. My criticism was made with love, appreciation and inclusion. Really, at times over the decades a JAPD might turn me on to a detail that I hadn't noticed before. And if the feedback makes it back to the band, then it's helpful (for the most part - I always thought people overreacted to Day Job and the 'junkie' ref in VOTC). After all, among the myriad aspects of this thing we call the Grateful Dead, it is/was very much like sports; with stats, ratings, intense record keeping, discussion of the nuances and details in each performance. All of that is great! In a sense it's the essence of the 30 Days annual awesomeness. And finally, the squeaky wheels get noticed - perhaps there will be compensation next year in terms of a favorite band member, especially if decent recordings are available.
    My main thing this year was reacting to comments that were only complaints and did not include any thanks or respect for the folks who put this together, especially the enviable Dave L, who has shared his love with all of us. The other is reminding JAPDs that their valuable observations are best when not too petty or whiny or melodramatic.
    Much love to all - I value each member of our vast community. I wish the best 2021 for all!

Yesterday's answer...
East Rutherford, NJ, Brendan Byrne Arena
From opening night of the Dead's five night stand at Brendan Byrne, this "China>Rider" is quite a bit longer than most versions from this era, with lots of MIDI fun along the way.
