30 Days of Dead

30-days-of-dead-2021

As the young folks like to say, it’s time to flex your Grateful Dead knowledge and take home a high-quality MP3 download every day in November while you are at it. 30 days of unreleased Grateful Dead tracks from the vault, selected by Dead archivist and producer David Lemieux? Yes, please! The tracks are yours, no strings attached, but we hope you’ll stick around for the chance to win some sweet swag from the Dead.

If you don’t know what we’re on about, here’s the deal:

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 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 and win prizes to boot.

This year’s GRAND PRIZE will be a copy of the numbered, limited-edition boxed set LISTEN TO THE RIVER: ST. LOUIS '71 '72 '73. Daily winners will take home a 2022 Grateful Dead Calendar.

Hint:
A huge classic, plus two newer songs released just 10 days earlier

    Okay, I was right. Now I…

    Okay, I was right. Now I want to know what is everyone's favorite version of Cassidy. Please?

    Ever grateful-Thanks for the music thanks for the family!

    What other band does this?-thanks to the GD, thanks Dave, thanks to all of you who show up every year to make this so much fun! A shining light that brightens every November-a band that has brought me so much joy over the last 46 years since I stepped up on the bus! I got in on about half the days this year-I am always reminded that it is the trip that is the magic and not so much the destination. For me the joy is in the search and the shows past that I rediscover or hear for the first time, and the memories of the places we went and the people we went with- old show buddies, and the incredible kaleidoscope of dancing joyous deadheads we met. A trip that still lives on!

    The First Days are the hardest days ...

    It's so true, the start of November was very difficult for me. After waiting for our November Dead to start, I missed the first 4 days. Once I got on track, I stayed on track.

    I'll say it again, what a great way to close out the 30 days. The 47-minute trifecta and were all winners!

    Woah oh what I want to know is where does the time go?

    In thankfullness to the band and all the fellas….

    Just want to thank the powers that be, Dave L., Mary e, everyone who plays every year, all the little “hints” we drop each other, the “in” jokes, the frustrations we share with syncing, me, you, a dog named Boo, (hope I'm not forgetting anyone), and all the camaraderie we share 30 days every November.

    You folks are the best!

    Will see everyone same time next year!

    Best Year Ever

    1) Free Dead music for 30 straight days. 2) I guessed on all 30 days. 3) I got 4 (maybe five) days correct. 4) Had lots of fun. As always...go Brent!

Yesterday's answer...
El Paso, TX, County Coliseum
"Weather Report Suite" was a rare song in the Dead's career that debuted live after it had been recorded and mixed for the studio album on which it would appear (Wake Of The Flood). They played the entire suite from September 1973 to October 1974, and then dropped the first two parts of the suite when they returned to the road in 1976
