30 Days of Dead Returns for November

It started yesterday, 30 Days of Dead has returned for 2022.

For those who are unaware, everyday throughout November the Grateful Dead do this:

We hope you've been brushing up on your live Grateful Dead and making room on all your devices because we're about to drop a motherload of high-quality MP3 downloads on you. Yes, there will once again be 30 days of unreleased Grateful Dead tracks from the vault, one for every day in November, selected by archivist and producer David Lemieux. The tracks are yours, no strings attached, but we hope you’ll stick around for the challenge and the chance to win some sweet swag from the Dead.

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 70s show? Each day we'll post a song 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? If you think you know, lob your answer in and you just might find yourself taking home our daily prize of a 2023 Grateful Dead wall calendar or the grand prize - both, YES BOTH - of this year's coveted boxed sets, Lyceum '72: The Complete Recordings [24LP] and In And Out Of The Garden: Madison Square Garden ’81, ’82, ’83 ( Exclusive)[17CD]!
Getting 30 Dead tunes for free, gifts for guessing correctly, and allowing super fans to test their knowledge is a fun way to pass the month. So head on over and enjoy. 

They started the month off with a version of "Passenger" (RtBE has no idea the year or performance), so here is a different ripping version of a Dead tune that is quickly becoming one of our favorites, form one of the best Dead releases ever, Dicks Picks #18.
