Hi....I'm too lazy to go through and find out if this has been reported before but I'm pretty sure the set list for this date (March 28 1973 at Springfield Civic Center) is bogus. Source would be the several recordings of this date to be found on archive.org. I was alerted to the problem because I used to have a vinyl bootleg LP with "The Love Each Other" from a Springfield '73 show on it. When I joined dead.net I tried to find this show on here, but couldn't dig up any Springfield shows with that song in 73, or in any other early 70s show. Thought maybe my memory or notation of the Springfield '73 date on the album was wrong, but eventually I found this date on archive.org and there was the beautiful TLEO I'd remembered all these years. I thought you'd just left that one song off but closer inspection makes me think the whole set list for this date on your site is f***ed as there seem to be numerous other discrepancies. Since the set lists on archive.org all seem to match, I'm pretty sure what you have is erroneous.

Keep up the great work and thanks so much for this site and all you do to keep Dead music alive and kickin'.

1-20-68

The latest release of 2-14-68 includes as bonus material Viola Lee Blues and GMLSG (not on the circulating tapes) and indicates they were played at this show. Any idea of the song order? Same for all the other bonus material on 2-14-68 (Road Trips Vol. 2, No.2)

Correction to Frost August 21, 1983 set list. It show Bobby be Good as the encore, when Baby Blue was the encore, but since we were all burnt to a crisp after a rippin show that we could not leave. I kept yelling at the stage that we were still owed a Bobby be Good since we were shorted an encore at the May 13th 1983 show at the Geek in Bazzerkley. So that put's BobbybeGood as 2nd encore and the world was put back in balance since was had an encore shortage to that point. And be fore we could leave some guy broke out his silver jewelery to sell to the non mobile ones such as myself. as I said it was a rippin show and we were fried out. So I had to ask this gentleman merchant of silver one question. Do we get Ginzu stake knife's with the jewelery? So sad he said that his UPS shipment of stake knife's had not come in. Did I mention that this was a rippinshow

I attended one of the August 19-21,1968 shows and Albert Collins did not play. It's A Beautiful Day played those shows. It was my first Dead concert, I was 16, and it totally blew me away.

Correction in setlist June 25, 1995

I'll give credit to the post below...but I noticed the wrong title for the second song in the second set (should be "Rain", cover of the Beatles song). My source is that I was there and remember singing "Rain...I don't mind!" as well as being soaked all day in the lot. Thanks for your efforts to consolidate all of this info. - Dan

The title to the second song of the second set is "Rain'. The song was put out as the b side for the single Paper back writer. "The rain song" on the other hand was a led zeppelin song, for those who would like to hear the orig.
Thanks Sean

Greyfold's show

I see that Mr. Pid previously located this for Greyfold. Sorry for the duplicate post.

Found Greyfold's missing show

Greyfold couldn't find her show from the Fall of 1984 because the Brendan Byrne Arena keeps changing its name. It's listed on the website as Meadowlands Arena (which is probably a good way to identify it, given the name changes). There were 2 shows in the fall of 1984, October 17 and October 18.

Missing Dead Show: Clark University, Worcester Massachusetts

The Clark University show currently listed:

http://www.dead.net/show/april-20-1969

was the Dead's second appearance at Clark University's Atwood Hall. There is documentary evidence for this in the soundboard recording, during the pre-set tuning, when someone (Phil?) announces "The last time we were here it was a total disaster."

He is referring to their previous visit, probably on January 7, 1968, that was cut short by a couple of power failures. I've detailed this visit in a post on archive.org where the recording is now available:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd69-04-20.sbd.lutch.4992.sbeok.shnf

However, in case this disappears, I've included an excerpt (below)

There was an earlier Dead show at Clark, the prior academic year, which is missing from the database.

I was a Freshman in the fall of '67. The Dead made their first appearance at Atwood Hall in late '67 or early '68. They performed a lot of material from Anthem although it had not been released yet. I was sitting near the center aisle when all of I sudden, maybe 40 minutes into the set, Paul MacGalliard goes running down the aisle towards the stage. That's funny, I thought. I wasn't used to seeing Paul, a man of significant size, move so fast. I was working with the theater group, learning stage lighting, and Paul, who was a year or two ahead of me, tolerated me and taught me the ropes. Suddenly I realized that all of the little red lights on the guitar amps had gone out. The Dead had blown out the power, but I was so entranced, I didn't even notice. The stage lights were still on, they were on a different circuit. The band members all picked up percussion instruments and just kept playing. (Maybe this was not the first time this had happened). They kept jamming until Paul threw the breakers and the power came back.

The Dead played a while longer until the circuits heated up and they blew the power again. It was no use, they excused themselves, and promised to come back, which they did in April of 1969. We had new power lines in Atwood, installed especially for them.
