We're getting a lot of folks asking where to send corrections for assorted errors they've found in the show archives. Maybe they didn't really play "Saint of Circumstance" that night. Maybe we have the band at the Meadowlands when they were really at MSG. Maybe the boys are simultaneously in Philadelphia and Phoenix.

Whatever mistakes you've found, this is the place to report them. Please include this information to make it easier for the tech folks to deal with:

The date and/or URL of the show in question (for example, http://www.dead.net/show/june-21-1980)

A detailed description of the problem (for example, wrong town, wrong venue, no "St. Stephen," etc.)

The source of your information (for example, DeadBase, notes on your tape, "Hey, I was in the front row and I'll never forget it!")

Thank you!

(Note: once we've made the corrections, we will delete the posts to reduce confusion and redundancy. If your post disappears, that doesn't mean we're not Grateful. Quite the reverse.)

Thx Wilfred...

...for that tip! it's obviously a lot to keep track of; understandable there tends to be a shuffle here or there. Appreciate the link.

lost in the shuffle

Lots and lots of shows are shuffled like this in the show pages. Fortunately, most times they're there. In case you missed it: http://www.dead.net/show/june-11-1976

June 11, 1976 - MIssing from your List

Hello! I noticed that June 11, 1976 is not listed at all in the show history pages between 6/10 and 6/12/76. I assume this is just an oversight and that it can be generated and put up.

only reason I noticed was because it is a favorite show of mine, but alas hasn't gotten the official GD web page treatment.

Thank you,
Sixtus

The correct setlist: from dead.net and Download Series Vol.8

Cold Rain And Snow, Hard to Handle, Black Peter, Me & My Uncle, China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider, St. Stephen -> Not Fade Away -> St. Stephen, In The Midnight Hour, Dancing In The Street, Monkey And The Engineer, Good Lovin' -> Uncle John's Band

According to: https://archive.org/search.php?query=title%3A%28Grateful%20Dead%29%20AND...

the setlist for this date (incorrectly noted as 23-Aug-71) may be:

Set 1 Uncle John's Band, Sugaree, Playin' In The Band, Mr. Charlie, Loser, El Paso, It Hurts Me Too, Cumberland Blues, Beat It On Down The Line, Brown Eyed Women, Me & My Uncle, Casey Jones Set 2 Saint Stephen-> Not Fade Away-> Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad-> Not Fade Away, Sing Me Back Home, Truckin', Big Railroad Blues, Me And Bobby McGee, Brokedown Palace, Big Boss Man, Sugar Magnolia

That mostly agrees with Dick's Picks 35, except for the fact that Dick's Picks 35 is incomplete and also includes two additional songs: Empty Pages (between Cumberland Blues and Beat It On Down The Line) and Good Lovin (after Brokedown Palace). Big Boss Man precedes Brokedown Palace on Dick's Picks 35.

I was there. My band, the Vipers, actually opened the show. I was the drummer, Ed Levin.

We weren't on the poster or the newspaper ad, but neither were the Dead.

Ralph Gleason still referred to them as the Warlocks in his review.

The "VIPs" was his misreading of our name, the Vipers.

Since we DID play at the gig, I humbly request Dead.net to include The Vipers on the bill.

The song played before the start of the 2nd set was actually "Fanfare for the Common Man"
by Aaron Copeland. It was used as the Olympic theme song. Jerry's nod to the venue!
The "2001" theme song (also sprach zarathustra)is similar but not what was played.
I was there, and can be heard on tapes, though I haven't found it on any archive recordings

Since you listed the CC Rider tease before Lazy Lightning... I think it only fair to include th St Stephen tease during space. I was there, and it is clearly heard on any recording on the archive. After Spanish Jam, leading into Not Fade Away. There was a group of people walking in front of the stage carrying a sheet with "St Steven" and a skull & roses painted on it.

Missing show between Low Library and Central Park

On May 4th, 1968, the band played SUNY - Stoney Brook - in the middle of Long Island. It was some sort of end of semester "dance". There was a cake backstage because it was Sunshine's 2nd birthday, which someone set firecrackers into at some point.Can't say I remember the set list, though!
