From the Grateful Dead site:

If you've been part of the community for the past few years, then you know we're on a mission to make a miracle every day in the month of November. This year is no different. 

As a token of our appreciation for making 2017 an epic year, we're giving away a high-quality 320Kbps MP3 download every day this month. That's 30 days of unreleased Grateful Dead tracks from the vault, selected by Dead archivist and producer David Lemieux! Intrigued? We're also going to put your knowledge to the test and give you a chance daily to win a limited-edition 7" single, the 1st release from our 2017 series. 

Here's how it works: 

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. 

Guess the venue and date correctly and you'll be automatically entered to win the prize of the day. 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 for our Grand Prize - a copy of our SOLD OUT MAY 1977: GET SHOWN THE LIGHT boxed set.

Uncle John's Band kicks off the first free download of  2017. 

When and where? 

Well, if you want, you can enter the contest and guess or simply wait for the answer tomorrow. Until then, you can listen to 2017's first 8 minutes and 58 seconds of what will be, I'm sure, another great November of free Dead music courtesy of their archives. Enjoy!

Keep in mind that these are high quality live recordings and if you are only familiar with the song's studio recording, live is where it's at.  
Of course, there will be the seques like a China/Rider. 

And even if you are familiar with a live version, remember how songs evolved, left a tour's setlist for a few years, and came back renewed. 

You can' go wrong.

  1. Hi ,
    I noticed that you mentioned the Grateful Dead on your page here:

    Did you know that John Perry Barlow, one of the band’s primary lyricist passed away just last week?

    There is an honorable article about him here:
    I thought you might want to share this with your users, so they will know what this great man did for us all.
