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,

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.)

No Nobody's Jam here (or there)

Given the Dead's custom of not playing the same song or jam 2 shows in a row, it would have been highly unlikely they would have played a 'Nobody's Jam' on both 5-8 and 5-9. Out of curiosity, I went back to have a listen and I can confirm that there is a jam with a slight air of the 'Nobody's Fault' theme tucked into NFA on 5-8 but it certainly does not occur on 5-9 at all. One could argue it really doesn't happen on 5-8 as currently listed either. It might read on 5-8 as NFA>Nobody's Jam>NFA, but that's dubious as well. I encourage you to check it out for yourself and make your own determination!

In summary: no 'Nobody's Jam' on for sure and dubious 'Nobody's Jam' on, certainly not before NFA as listed. (a sandwich maybe)

False Positive

For some reason there is a show listed before the first show, That is, the first show - at Magoos's. 5/5/65 - displays a link for a previous show, which of course is impossible. (The Dead did mess around with space and time, but not actual time travel.) Clicking on that link brings you to a show two years in the future. There is a not from MaryE to the effect that this is being worked on ... from seven years ago.

So this is a reminder, that this ought to be corrected. Thanks!

This show did not happen in Omaha, NE the Dead opened the show for the Iron Butterfly in Kansas City, Kansas, Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall, 7th and Barnett St. There is a partial stream of this show at (please read catfishbob's comment of 05/21/2008 with details) I attended this performance and it was my first Grateful Dead show. I actually talked with Jerry between shows and got his autograph (it read "Live Jer")
I have heard the Dead played Omaha on 02/15/1969, but did not attend or know anyone with details) Thank you.

*correction to set list*

The July 17, 1989 Alpine Valley set list on Deadnet is incorrect - they played West LA Fadeaway, Desolation Row and Deal in the first set, not Row Jimmy, Masterpiece, Push, etc, as listed. This is the "Downhill from here" show, or one of them. See for the show, assuming it's listed correctly on Youtube. The set lists of July 17 & July 19 were mixed up on Deadnet, at least for the end of set 1. Specifically, the July 19 end of set 1 was wrongly listed as being on July 17.
Also, I noted while watching the show that Brent would be dead with a little over a year of this show. He looked really messed up here on the video in July 1989.

Pretty sure The Weight was the encore, missing from set list.

This show (and a show at Boston on 4-8-71, and at Pittsburgh on 4-12-71), which took place in between the GD shows on April 7, 1971 and April 13, 1971 all appear to be missing from your archive of GD shows.

Listed as Filmore West. In fact this is the date the Dead played (or anyway were scheduled to play) a benefit for the Black Panthers at the Oakland Auditorium Arena. No setlist available.

The posters for the show are readily available online with a Google images search, and even on this site:

The First Shows at MSG

Were scheduled for 11/30 and 12/1 1978. Jerry was sick and the shows were postponed. They did not reissue tickets, the tix for the original shows were accepted at MSG.

Hi, 4/14/83 was an off day. The list shows the show being at the Greeks in Berkley. The problem seems to be that its showing 5/14/83. Here is the URL

I have portions of this show recorded off of and that recording has Mexicali, not Big Railroad Blues.
