Anybody interested probably already knows about this and has been enjoying and downloading these tunes all month. But there may be a couple of you that don't. This is the 2nd time this year that the Grateful Dead net has released a song a day from the vault for our listening and downloading pleasure.
Why are they giving away music for free, you ask? Well, again most of you know but a couple of you may not be aware that the Dead always encouraged taping of their live music shows. Unlike most bands that aggressively endeavor to stop any taping or recording of shows, the Dead always made sure there was a special reserved section for tapers. And we're not talking just your Saturday afternoon cassette deck over the head taping, although there were always a few of those. There were some pro-style set-ups and folks that toured the country in their Blue Bird buses taping hundreds of hours of music. It's probably a safe bet that there is no other band in the WORLD with as many hours of concert footage preserved in private stashes as the Grateful Dead. Millions and billions of magnetic particles holding on to some very classic memories.
Anyway, you can click on the logo there and download this months freebies - and while you're at it, buy yourself a tie-dye ya old hippie..
