I have an old cassette boot of this and I am on some sort of trivial personal crusade to set the record straight about this show ... Joan Baez came out after the Dead finished US Blues and introduced the members of the band, then she called all the musicians that had performed that day out onto the stage, and they all sang a Joan staple titled "Bridging the Gap." So Amazing Grace DOES NOT follow US Blues as stated here and elsewhere ... I can prove it.
It's All Over Now, Baby Blue is the correct encore tune.
Looking for a clean copy of the 2nd set, as my cd has vanished!
clearly, someone just made a typing error here. in your listing for set II, scarlet>fire is erroneously repeated after samson.
in other words, here is the correct reading for 2/5/78 set 2:
Scarlet>Fire, Samson, Ship of Fools, Truckin'>Jam>Drums>Other One>Wharf Rat>Around and Around E: U.S. Blues
Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
Cold Rain And Snow
Weir's Short Fat Little Yeller Dog Rap
China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider
Me And My Uncle
Turn On Your Lovelight
The Setlist was as follows I think there was only one set
Hard to Handle
Cryptical Envelopment>Drums>The Other One>Cryptical Envelopment>
Sitting on Top of the World>King Bee
Doin' That Rag
Turn on Your Lovelight
Beat it On Down the Line
Im not sure if a second set was done or not, this set looks like a whole show though.
sorry for the repetition - no way to edit my original 3/5/71 post I guess.
Anyway, the "previous show" link at 3/5/71 takes you to 2/24/71, not 3/3/71.
I'm guessing all the confusion is due to the fact that the 3/3/71 poster actually says 3/3/70 so that show originally must've been listed as 3/3/70. (the ticket stub for the 3/3/71 clearly shows that the airwaves benefit was indeed on 3/3/71 so the poster must be wrong. See http://www.psilo.com/dead/showimage.php?iid=67&text=03-03-71%20Ticket)
This listing is kind of screwy - it says this show was at the Syndrome. The Syndrome was in Chicago so that can't be right. Poster says it was at the Carousel Ballroom (Fillmore West).
Also, the "previous show" link takes you to 3/18/71! And the "next show" link takes you to 3/4/70. I know time could get kind of funky at shows but still...
A couple issues for the 3/5/71 listing:
The notes are for the Airwaves Benefit which was on 3/3/71. Also the 3/5/71 poster says the show was held at the Oakland Auditorium Arena (aka the Kaiser). The dead.net listing says Fillmore West.
Does anyone if it actually was held at Fillmore West?
Check the remarks at the link above for the complete setlist.

I remember going to that Pacific Stereo free show at the Cow Palace. I think it was 1969, but I'm not 100% on that. What I do remember is that there were lots of fights in the stands during that show. This show was the reason I didn't go to Altamont (another free show), I went to shows for the music and to have a good time, not to get into fights. I've NEVER regretted skipping Altamont.
