It’s now November which means the Grateful Dead has continued a long-standing tradition by sharing the first of 30 tracks from the band’s vault as part of their annual 30 Days Of Dead promotion. The return of 30 Days Of Dead began on Wednesday with an “Uncle John’s Band” and today’s installment features “Easy Wind.”
