From the Grateful Dead site:

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.

NOW!

“Jack-A-Roe”  kicked off 2020’s first free download.

If you want, you can enter the contest and guess or simply wait for the answer tomorrow.

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 or a Candyman/Cassidy or even a Help/Slipknot/Franklin’s Tower.

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. 2019’s 30 downloads yielded  7 hours 3 minutes and 32 seconds worth of previously unreleased Dead recordings. That’s right!

And so far (2010 – 2020), the site has given away over 59 HOURS of music!!!

Open up. The sun is shining on your back door.

Climb aboard!
Thanks for visiting

  1. Hi ,
    I noticed that you mentioned the Grateful Dead on your page here: woodstockwhisperer.info/2015/11/01/30-days-dead/

    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: https://www.vpnmentor.com/blog/5-lessons-john-barlow-taught-world/
    I thought you might want to share this with your users, so they will know what this great man did for us all.

    Best,

    Sharona
