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.

Today's Song
Hint:
A popular first set Jerry song from its debut in 1971 until 1995, played over 400 times

    Hard drive loss

    I was losing a lot and discovered that it was an unmetered usb voltage... I moved to an Anker hub between my TB drives and the computer and haven't lost one since

    oof

    Lost yet another hard drive yesterday and it was my start up hard drive. Argh. Worked 9.5 hour so had no time for row jimmy searching. Todays trio? of Bobby Phil and a drummer has left me dumbfounded. Deadbase 50 seem to be of no help. Tomorrow I work another 9 or 10 hour so I guess I'll pick this up on Monday. Have fun y'all.
