Looking for a source

I will be giving a presentation on the Grateful Dead phenomenon to an audience that has not had the pleasure of being at a show, but really wants to know what it is all about.

One of my themes will be the age-old artistic tension of absolute free-form expression within a confined framework, namely: Set 1, Set 2 with jams and Space, rousing finale, then one Encore.

I have seen some stats on which songs most commonly appear as openers, set closers and encores, but I would like to go a little deeper. I am looking for a way to document my observation that one of the recurring elements in these shows is a reflective, soul-searching, song after Space (e.g. Wharf Rat, Ship of Fools, Stella Blue).

This is my observation, but I would like to support it with some measure of “Frequency Distribution of Songs Played After Space”. Does this exist?

30 days date/complete list?

I know wilfredtjones recently replied to a post asking about date/venue/tidbit info for the last few days of this year's treasure chest. In previous years, I've been able to find a place that has the complete list of songs/venues/dates all in one spot. Not sure if it usually shows up on dead.net or elsewhere, but I've been unable to find it.

Anyone know where to look? If not, I guess I can go thru the list and copy/past the daily info but was hoping to find someone who's already done it!

Gratefully yours....

This was the better of the 2 held that weekend in Washington DC. Listening to the show on GDC in its entirety. 2 great sets, then returned with Betts and Trucks from ABB, they were incredible. I'm 61 and this music will never stop !

27th-
Song: They Love Each Other
Date: 7-19-90
Venue: Deer Creek
tidbit info: The 1973 (and one version in 1974) arrangement of TLEO was fast, with a fun bridge, but when the song returned to the repertoire in 1976 (with one version in 1975), it was in a much slower arrangement than it had been in 1973-1974
28th-
Song: Box of Rain
Date: 12-31-72
Venue: Winterland Arena
tidbit info: Played live only in 1972 and 1973, this American Beauty opener was dropped from the repertoire until its triumphant return in Hampton, VA in 1986
29th-
Song: Lazy River Road
Date: 7-31-94
Venue: The Palace at Auburn Hills
tidbit info: Played at 65 Grateful Dead 1993-1995, including the last-ever Grateful Dead show
30th-
Song: Uncle John's Band
Date: 9-29-77
Venue: Paramount Northwest Theater
tidbit info: Uncle John's Band was played almost 350 times, and aside from 1976 (well, it WAS played as the encore on 12/31/76, but that was after midnight so was technically 1977...) and 1978, it had a consistent place in the repertoire.
