Every day in November, the Grateful Dead will give up a free download from the band's sprawling catalog on its website.
It's part of the "30 days of Dead," a month-long promotional push that started November 1.
Most tracks are previously unreleased soundboard recordings, according to the website's press release. And they are meant to honor the "tapers who documented the Dead's concerts and trade them freely with other Dead Heads."
Tracks are available for free for one day only. Fans have already missed out on "New Speedway Boogie" and "Dark Star."
Unfortunately, the website hasn't posted the names of the other tracks they plan on releasing, effectively killing my plan of building a Grateful Dead advent calendar.
Dave Lemieux, the band's archivist, handpicked all 30 tracks.
