    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.)

    PNW Boxed Set
    Not sure if this is the correct place to post this, so will try here and elsewhere. Hello fellow heads, The first two shows of the new PNW boxed set are incorrectly recorded — the R and L channels are reversed. These two shows were recorded by Rex Jackson, the next show, in Seattle, was recorded by Kidd Candelario and the channels are correct. Not sure how it is that David Lemieux and Jeffery Norman missed this and failed to correct it, but it is not the first time it has happened. There are selections on So Many Roads which are reversed, as well as Dick’s Picks #13 (which is VERY surprising, because it is an 80s show and not only the placement of the drummers in the stereo mix is obvious, but also super-obvious is the placement of Weir and Brent!). Interestingly enough, Dave’s Picks Vol 16, recorded by Kidd, is correct, but Dave’s Picks Vol 21, recorded by Rex, is not — the channels on that one are reversed. Both are 1973 shows. It is easy enough to discern whether or not the channels are correct by listening to the pan of the drums in the stereo mix; for a single drummer show in stereo the hi-hat is panned predominantly in the Right channel and the ride in the Left channel and the toms, when used as a fill, should go from R channel to L and from high to low. If you listen to even just the first song of each first set from the three 1973 shows in the boxed set you can hear the difference between the Vancouver/PDX recordings and the Seattle — listen to the drums. This is a phenomenon I have observed since getting on the bus in the mid 80s. (Several really good shows on youtube have their channels reversed!) I wrote to Lemieux about it a few years ago (he often posts show snippets on Tapers’ Section which are reversed — lots of stuff from 73, and spring 81 in particular, but a good recent example are the two first sets from Ventura 84 which he recently posted). At that time he excused the DP#13 as not being on his watch and indicated that fixing the reversed channels on the snipets was simply not a priority or interest for him. I have written to him several times regarding this current, expensive boxed set, but he has not replied. Some heads on FB have plead the “purist” defense for this, meaning that recordings should be released as they are, but I’m guessing many of these same heads love the Europe 72 and Spring 90 stuff, all of which has been heavily remixed and homogenized to the point of no longer being able to hear the venue/room nor the unique mix of each show; they sound awesome, but from a “purist’s” POV are certainly not accurate historical documents…so I see no reason why the production team wouldn’t correct a recording error such as the channels being switched unless they simply did not notice it due to lack of interest, lack of attention, lack of mindfulness. If you can hear the difference and feel, as I do, that this incredible music should be represented as best as possible, please email or tweet Lemieux at vault@dead.net or @lemieuxdavid and let him know.

    September 24, 1991http://www.dead.net/show/september-24-1991 The set list here says "Baby Blue" (It's All Over Now, Baby Blue). My tape says "(Used to Love Her) All Over Now". With my ears I heard It's All Over Now, the Bobby Womac song (http://www.dead.net/song/its-all-over-now), not the Dylan song (http://www.dead.net/song/its-all-over-now-baby-blue).

    I think that the correct order of songs for the third set is as follows: Slow Train Comin' Stuck Inside of Mobile Tomorrow is a Long Time Highway 61 Baby Blue Ballad of a Thin Man John Brown Wicked Messenger Queen Jane Approximately Chimes of Freedom Joey All Along the Watchtower Times They Are A-Changin' My source is I'm watching it on YouTube.

    I think One More Saturday Night was the last song, Casey Jones the encore. Other way around on the site. I remember the lights going on and the smoke ffrom the end of the show wafting behind the stage.

    Song Title Error
    A friend shared a show in which the band played a song by Bob Dylan, "Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again." It's from the Capital Centre in Landover MD on 9/5/1988. I came here to see if they did it at any other shows, and was surprised to see a couple of things. First, I couldn't find the song right away because the title is listed incorrectly as "Memphis Blues." That needs to be fixed. Also, if I recall correctly, there were notes for songs saying which shows they were played at. That seems not to be the case anymore. I could be wrong about that, but not the first issue. Thanks

http://www.dead.net/show/december-8-1994 My last show, with buds Tom & Rob, dosed and toast, absolutely PEAKING during this (to me) unknown TWEAKY tune - Easy Answers? Yeah, that must be it. NO set list ever has it on there, and even the (passable) audience tape CD I have does not include it. But I did NOT imagine it. BTW, this would make an amazing and surprising DixPix. Check out the slow burn boogie Round&Round. Also Lucy on sad anniversary of John Lennon's untimely death. Peace&Love

I got to the first row because we didn't see the first set. The second set started with doggone and I believe that it included dancing in the streets. At the time, I wouldn't have recognized scarlet begonias, but I know NOW that it doesn't sound anything like these and it would have been an odd way to start a set. Somebody help!

Indeed, this show did take place. There are two listings for 6-6-1969; the second should be changed to 6-7-1969 as it has the set list from the Janis Lovelight night, which occurred on that date. Also, it seems there's an electric (Bobby sings) "The Green, Green Grass of Home" before the acoustic Dire Wolf which may have an additional guitarist from an opening band or something-I'm not sure.

I forgot to list my source for the 6-7-1969 info: I have a recording that unfortunately doesn't include the Dark Star>St. Stephen, and fades the Lovelight out at the 15:49 mark, probably right before a climactic ending. On my copy, there's an Uncle John's Band after the Lovelight, but I have no idea if it's the encore or if it's even from the same show.

Hey everyone, You might notice that some of the errors in this thread have been here a while without being tended to. These remain because they are unfixable at the moment. We have a rampant "date bug", as I call it. What it does is display show dates in an odd way. For example, sometimes you will see two shows listed with the same date or a show that is listed as being on the wrong day entirely. Going in and editing the date to be correct will not stick... but you can see the correct date change in the 'title' of the page... the place on your browser window that lists what the page is called. For now, that is the only place the correct date shows. Everywhere else, it displays incorrectly. We are trying to figure it out, and when we do, I will be able to delete the posts referring to these date display errors. Just so you guys know I'm not ignoring you. Cheers, A

I'm positive that the boys did Satisfaction at this show. It was my girlfriends first show. She was a UCLA student living on campus at the time. I met her in her dorm room. She had borrowed a bunch of Dead studio albums so that she would know what to expect. I told her that it wasn't going to work. She also didn't understand why I wanted to get to Pauley Pavillion early. She then learned about the show before the show. The reason that I remember Satisfaction is that she was amazed that they were doing another bands song as part of the encore. Like I said, it was her first show. There were many more after. We were married for 23 years and our oldest daughters middle name is Cassidy. Obviously, after a weekend at Ventura and New Years Eve that year, she got it.

Wrong city: The page for this show says they played The Cheetah in Santa Monica on this date. There were at least two Cheetah clubs in the country and on 6/12/67 they most likely played The Cheetah in New York City. There's a "recently discovered" poster for this show (supposedly from the "first roadie of the GD") at Vintageconcertposters.com that gives the address as 53rd & Bdwy - this is NYC. This also makes sense since the previous show was in NYC at the Cafe au Go-Go.

Some would say that the band came back out for 1 more song after a good share of the stage had been dis-assembled. So many fans just wouldn't leave. They played "The Promised Land" This is based on a review written in the local Omaha newspaper the next day. The reviewer didn't get the tile right but he called the song "The Terminal Zone" and described the situation basically as I described, with the writer's addition the the band came back out to play one last song "with feeling". I was at that show and hasily remember bits and pieces of what was described.

i allow myself to pose this rather indiscreet question.what happening? the band playing the "promised land" which by an innocent writer was interpreted as "the terminal zone"(pretty big difference)or did they come back after they allready played on a semi disassembeled stage to play a second last song with feeling......i am confused,but as this was a GD concert i would be happy to have seen it anyway...or was the writer dozed by iresponsible social elements?

The following three shows were actually performed indoors at the Seattle Center Coliseum, not at the outdoor Seattle Center Memorial Stadium. The Coliseum was where the Sonics played before the Key Arena was built. The Dead did not start playing at the outdoor Memorial Stadium until the 1990's. I was at all three of the Coliseum shows. Then came the Great Drought. For 5 years the Dead came no closer to Seattle than Eugene. Then they played 1 show at the acoustical monstrosity that is the Tacoma Dome. The last Dead show I ever saw was May 26, 1995 at the Memorial Stadium. It was my 44th birthday. http://www.dead.net/show/august-14-1981 http://www.dead.net/show/august-28-1982-0 http://www.dead.net/show/august-27-1983

The setlist is missing the Handsome Cabin Boy jam out of space. I was at the show and had the tape for years without knowing what "THAT" instrumental was. But I got to see it AGAIN out of space in '92 and knew it from the previous tape. Finally learned what it was many years later when a housemate pulled up in the driveway and it was cranking out of his car from Shady Grove. Jerry & Grisman do it instrumentally on the All Around this World disc, too, and there's an early Zappa cover on Mystery Disc. Anyway, I like it better as an instrumental. And the setlist should read: drums -> space -> Handsome Cabin Boy jam -> Playin' tease....

The notes say the show started at 4:30 am. Time is a foggy thing, but I remember it starting later. Fire on the Mountain and a sunrise came about the same time. The show was buzzed by a private plane, definitely in full sunlight.

I am sure I remember them playing Brokedown as an encore at this show. I remember because I was hanging up at the top of the hill w/my friend Jim who was having a difficult trip & this song was so appropriate since we were both going our separate ways after the show. It was touching. I never saw him again in fact, but hope he's well.

There is no listing for the Vegas Silver Bowl show on Sat. 4-27-91...... They played 2 vegas shows that year, not just the 1 listed (4-28-91) . Both shows were strong that year, and the 1st set on 4-27-91 ended with a fine version of Might As Well, with Garcia really getting in some good yelps at the end of the tune......

You have this show listed as being at the Seattle Center Coliseum.I recall it being at tthe Seattle Center ARENA, these ar 2 different buldings on the same grounds, The Arena being an 8,000 seat venue as opposed to the 15,000 seat Coliseum. I actually recall this show pretty vividly as it was my 1st GD show and was prior to my indulgence in any sort of experience enhancing substances. This show marked me for life. I do believe the correct venue was the ARENA. Thanks Robert Swanson

I'm pretty sure Unbroken Chain was done in the set (of course, what could be certain about what went on in a Dead show.....). It was memorable because this couple up near the front started heading for the ground in full on gettin' it on mode, but the song didn't last quite long enough for them to fully consummate the deed (we considered writing the band to suggest lengthening the song in performance more often).

Sorry if I've worn anyone out already asking about this show, for which there's no apparent listing. I'm new to the site and just stumbled on this forum.Yes, May 1968. I was 19, had heard the 1st Dead album, and thought, "No big deal". We had Cream and Hendrix to keep us busy back then. The Dead came on around 1:00 a.m., I believe the last of about 4 or 5 bands in what the school called a "dance concert", though the small number of us left by then just sat on the gym floor. They did some stuff from the 1st album, much of what showed up later on Anthem, and Lovelight (to end their set, I think). I walked out dazed and happy, and a fan forever. Can the show be added to the list? It really needs to be there.

http://www.dead.net/show/march-19-1973 I did not print and compare, but the set lists look similar to 3/15/73, and the poster for the nassau run only shows dates on 3/15 and 3/16. 3/15 was my first NY show, spring break first year in college, it was amazingly electric, band was on fire, they came out wearing "urban cowboy" wear (locals were referring to as "newdie suits" or "newty", i believe an area western wear vendor.) This was the era when for the Eyes jam, they'd huddle around in a semi-circle on stage watching each other and just jam the shit out of it, The dude abides ... ,
