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.”
Be on the lookout for a new, free track picked by Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux to be posted here each and every day in November. Once again, each track will initially be unveiled without a date and venue, so Deadheads can guess when and where the version took place and perhaps win a prize.
Today we learned the “Uncle John’s Band” shared on November 1 was played by the Grateful Dead on May 26, 1977 at Baltimore’s Civic Center. Have a listen to this fantastic rendition:
Thursday’s track is “Easy Wind.” Stream the version and see if you can figure out the date, venue and city where the Pigpen classic was recorded:
