    hey 143!
    They still exist, but I don't think they're active. I think technology may have overtaken it all to some extent; it pretty much comes down to whether people still want to do things that way. It was fun to get those DVDs in the mail...

    Hey there Y'all -
    My Daughter was sorting through my records lately and found two unusual records (seem to be from a radio broadcast in 1981 on the NBC young adults network). If these are of value to the archive I would be glad to send them to the right person.
    Thanks

If you do not know where you downloaded your file (it's the default place where ALL your downloads go if you didn't specify @ dload time)....I don't know if you have a MAC or WINBLOWS but just do a search for this~~~~> newspeedwayboogie Copy and paste that into your search and you will find the file...make sure that the date you put the file in was yesterday.

CC: thanx, I have Windows. Did the search, "no file found." I have just downloaded today's Dark Star, and did it differently, I hit 'Save' the file, yesterday I did 'Open.' I must not have the newspeedwayboogie saved anywhere. Any chance I can get another chance to download newspeedwayboogie? Appreciate the help. :-)))

I can't get registered here ... about to give up. I tried to register as marshallstax but it keeps saying my email is already in use... it might be because due to getting replys in my spam folder I also registered as mstax. I WANT TO REGISTER AS MARSHALLSTAX NOT MSTAX!! Much more of your catch-22 games and I'll just give up... life's too short for the hassle just to get registered here!

I assure you that if you are posting as marshallstax you are duly registered. The system has been a little overtaxed since yesterday so you may have experienced some strange behavior, but it looks like it's working...

Click the Grateful Dead bar at the top of the page to get back to the homepage. Click the 30 Days of Dead link to get to today's page. Scroll down the page to the track of the day. Click Listen to stream and click Download to download. It seems to be working fine now; it may have been acting up when you tried earlier, so please try it again. Thanks.

I don't know if this question is in the right place but would it be possible to have back covers with track listings available for downloads also a track list of the show when you click on it before deciding to purchase would be a great help.

Where are the links to downloads?Make it a sticky at the top of the page so others can find them too- Many are asking this same question.

how much stickier you can get than a big honking link smack dab in the middle of the homepage... Now it is possible that something may not be working properly, but it's not like the page is invisible. I've noticed some issues this morning myself, and reported them.

Hi folks--

We knew you were going to love 30 Days of Dead. We may have underestimated how much.

The original plan, as we said in the beginning, was that each day's stream and download would only be available for that day. Well, demand was so high that many folks had trouble connecting and downloading, so we've kept each day's files available short-term while we addressed the technical issues.

Once we've got those issues resolved and the downloads are going smoothly, we'll be removing the archive of previous days' files. We will give an advance warning before we do this. Meanwhile, here's a list of links to date  so you can download what you may have missed. Thanks!

I had an uncle who was kind of a hippie, and he took me to a free concert in Piedmont Park in Atlanta GA in July of 1973, right before my 13th birthday. I never remembered the name of the band, but I was drawn to the Dead as a college kid and saw them 126 times before Jerry passed. Well, a couple months ago, one of the shows played on the xm radio noon concert was from 7-7-1973, Atl GA. This show is not listed on the website, but I could swear that this was the show my uncle took me to. The story the dj on xm said was that the free concert happened the day after a really hot Allman Bros show and had something to do with the promoter showing his appreciation to the city's music fans. Can someone out there verify that show happened, and if so, how can I get a copy? Nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile!

I would try buying what you need else where.. If you order here you will probably only get a partial order and be waiting for a response from the $$$ hungry people here.. I am still waiting to hear back about the missing CD from my order of Jerry's new album releases.. Ordered the bundle and only get one CD.. Now thats how a company can make $$$ only ship half the order.. Good luck to those who order from this sight..

please send me a PM with the details and I'll try to get it straightened out. built, as I understand it it's no longer necessary to have a separate account for the Store, but let me verify that. It's a holiday weekend, so I may not hear back on this till Monday. Thanks.
