Grateful Dead Completes ‘30 Days Of Dead’ 2020

Advertisement

A Grateful Dead tradition continued throughout the month of November with the 30 Days Of Dead audio series. Streaming audio and MP3 downloads of all 30 tracks are now available free-of-charge via Dead.net.

Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux selected each of the tracks from the band’s vault, which were rolled out on each day last month. This year’s installment featured live tracks spanning 1969 – 1994. Also included were an “Eyes Of The World” studio outtake from 1973 and a “Crazy Fingers” rehearsal taped at the band’s Club Front space on March 26, 1982 — months before the Dead busted out the song in concert for the first time in nearly six years.

30 Days Of Dead 2020 mostly consisted of single songs, but did include a handful of multi-song performances such as a run of “Sugar Magnolia” > “Scarlet Begonias” > “Fire On The Mountain” from April 27, 1991. The 1970s were represented on 11 days, while 12 days were devoted to the 1980s and six to recordings from the 1990s. A take on “Casey Jones” recorded at Reed’s Ranch in Colorado Springs on July 3, 1969 was this year’s lone track from the 1960s.

A file containing MP3s of this year’s series can be downloaded here. Each track can be streamed or downloaded individually through Dead.net.
