    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.

    Just a note for those interested in show http://www.dead.net/show/june-21-1980 Cap. Center MD. Bruce Hornsby sat-in with the band. Awesome accordion riffs!!! First time I saw him. I thought everybody was booing the band, then Bobby announced his presence I realized it was Not a "Boo" but the crowd cheering "Bruce"

    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

The archives list the next show after this one as July 21, 1974 at Springfield, MA...did they go on vacation for 21 days? I'm pretty sure I saw them with the infamous "Wall of Sound" at the St. Paul Civic Center (St. Paul, MN) sometime during this stretch, but I could be wrong...memories from that period are getting kind of "hazey" if you know what I mean. But, I do remember the show itself well, as if it were somehow etched into my brain with acid...

There are no setlists for 4/5/71 -> 4/7/71 and 4/8/71 is missing. Also, the archive photos seem to have been greatly reduced. Is this problem across the board?

I just received " Vol 1 No. 4 From Egypt with Love " disc and when I went to download the second disc much to my surprise it was a different CD: "Rocking the Cradle 1978 " starting with Jack Straw and ending with It's All Over Now. So though the disc is labeled correctly( 'Egypt with Love" ) it was somehow mixed up with the wrong recording. Perhaps this is a problem of which you are already aware but I don't wish to pay for another copy which may also be incorrect. I am sure I will like the misrecorded CD but I have to say I am rather disappointed.

The 1968 Stony Brook gig mentioned above occurred on Saturday 4th May 1968 - ads and reviews in the SB Statesman magazine - only support mentioned was The Incredible String Band but Sarjo01 indicated there were other bands on earlier - makes sense if the Dead did indeed come on around 1am as the gig kicked off at 8PM... Regarding Deadathoner who said: > SUNY Stony Brook, Saturday, October 16th 1971 is missing from the 1971 listings. I have the ticket stub. It was a great concert. Authenticate it, if you must, just don't leave it out. Well, I've been through all the issues of the Statesman for the period and they have no ads or reviews for this - and they WOULD have had if it had taken place on that date - no, they have listed The Mothers of Invention for Oct 16 in the gym, and the next issue after that date had a photo report on that gig so it took place OK. However, that leaves the ticket stub for which I cannot account... :-(

How could this show be a protest to the Jackson State killings when they didn't occur until the 14th and 15th of May 1970? I would assume this show would be a response to Kent State which happened May 4th, and not the May 14th and 15th murders (unless the Dead has access to precognition or some type of a time machine). hmmm...

In between your listing of Tennessee Jed and China Cat Sunflower, I believe the Dead also played Greatest Story Ever Told. Also Sugar Magnolia ends before the (unlisted) Sunshine Daydream begins, so I'd see the two as separate tracks. I am aware that the Dead often segued from one into the other in other shows, but not here. This latter comment also applies to your listing for Sugar Magnolia on the setlist for the 10 June 1973 concert. My source for this information is a matching pair of AUD and SND recordings of both concerts, which have been doing the rounds of the torrent sites. I was using your site (thanks) as a convenient source for the track names, when I found you appeared to have missed Greatest Story Ever Told. Hope this is useful. Regards and thanks Grrr

I was at this show. It was on a Sunday, not Monday. I was in tenth grade - I can assure you my friends and I did not made the trip from West Palm Beach after school. As a double check, Santana was playing the same night somewhere in Miami - we passed on them to catch the Dead.

The band opened with Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" celebrating the resignation of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher earlier that day. The crowd went nuts when the heard the lyric "I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more."

I attended this (these) shows. And it was such a great introduction to the American Beauty songs! Super long playful renditons of Candyman, Ripple, Truckin, Brokedown Palace, etc! But I do believe there were 2 dates at this venue, 2 days in a row. I went to both. Some details are fuzzy, but the gist of the qualities of the small flat room that they played in is vivid. There was no stage of any kind, just on the flat floor of one of the school's semi-occupied rooms, maybe a caffeteria or admin bldg lobby. I do remember they setup up against a glass paneled wall, and the folks outside could see them right their in the full lenghth window. It was a really minimal setup. But the sets were magic and so immediate and uncommonly INTIMATE! It was a refreshingly loose concert as was the venue/ low admission price and lots of "alternate entries" to help the poor and starving students, et al.. ...GOOD TIMES, TIMES 2

Unfortunately you have the 15th of March shows listed twice .. and then it goes on to the 17th of March. If you go to the 17th of March it says on that page previous one 16th.. but when you go back it says 15th.. and on the general page of shows listed in 1968 it shows March 15th at Carousel listed twice.

Appears out of sequence in the previous show/next show area - should be between Veterans Memorial Coliseum April 23, 1984 and Providence Civic Center April 26, 1984, as it does on the Shows By Years list. As it is, it appears like this: Previous Show « Nevada County Fairgrounds - September 18, 1983 Next Show California Exposition Amphitheater - June 9, 1984 OOPS! There may be other inconsistencies in this area. Have fun! And thanks! furthering mandolin consciousness

Werewolves was a separate, distinct, second encore. I know. I was there. And it was my birthday. And, according to my ticket stub, it wasn't the Grateful Dead that played, it was the Greatful Dead.

Hi, There are a bunch of errors to links for previous and next shows. http://www.dead.net/show/november-11-1978 Lists Next as Nov. 14, 78 should be Nov. 13 http://www.dead.net/show/november-17-1978-0 (Loyola) Next Listed as May 7, 79 should be Probably be the Nov. 17 (Uptown) Listed after this one. I don't know which 11/17 show came first. http://www.dead.net/show/may-7-1979 Lists previous as the Nov. 17 Loyala show. Should be May 5. http://www.dead.net/show/may-5-1979 Next: June 28, 79, should be: May 7 http://www.dead.net/show/may-13-1979 Next has Nov. 2, 79, should be June 28. http://www.dead.net/show/november-2-1979 List the Previous show as May 13. Should be Nov. 1 List Next show as Dec 9. Should be Nov. 4 http://www.dead.net/show/december-9-1979 Previous has Nov. 2, 79, should be Dec. 7 Next has May 7, 1980. should be Dec. 10. http://www.dead.net/show/december-10-1979 Previous as Dec. 7. should be Dec. 9 http://www.dead.net/show/november-1-1979 Lists next as Nov. 4. Should Nov. 2. http://www.dead.net/show/november-2-1979 Previous May 13, 79 should be Nov. 1. Next Dec. 9. Should be Nov. 4 This is not all of them. Okay, right now this seems to be just snaking around. I am sure it will all work out eventually since most of the links for the shows are accurate. Tracing and documenting is taking to much time. (It would quicker to fix.) I am capable of fixing this if you like. I am currently an out of work programmer with experience with HTML/XML. This seems pretty basic. Please feel free to contact me. waynomo at gmail dot com Also waynomo at well dot com Thanks, Wayne

I would recommend running an Optimize Tables on the schema before doing a lot of hand editing, especially given the high volume of spamination that's had to go on. Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

The February 21 1970 show in San Antonio actually took place at the HemisFair Arena, where the Spurs later played for many years. (No such place as the San Antonio Civic Center Arena, sorry.) It was a great show: Quicksilver, John Mayall (with Duster Bennett doing a solo mini-set as well), It's A Beautiful Day, and the Dead closing the show with "Turn on Your Lovelight" with the houselights on and a hardcore gaggle of fans on the floor. http://www.dead.net/show/february-21-1970

On the Deer Creek 6-7-91 page after "Need A Miracle" it should say "Standing On The Moon" but it says "Stander On The Mountain" Just trying to keep things consistent with what the tapes say, as well as footage from the day. God Bless

Grateful Dead Hour (no.?) broadcast a show where Garrison Keillor (vocals), Velma Fry (vocals), Pat Donahue, and John Nieman (with acoustic guitar, mandolin, and piano) sang a medley of "Ripple", "Brokedown Palace" and "Attics Of My Life" (from "A Prairie Home Companion" show broadcast on January 10, 1987)I've searched every which way. Does anyone know what Grateful Dead Hour show number played this selection??????

URL: http://www.dead.net/show/march-28-1973 The 3-28-73 that is listed on dead.net is actually the setlist that occurs on 3-26-73. So if you scroll from 3-26 to 3-28 you see the same setlist. Hopefully the Dead.net folks will update the info for 3-28. As a side note: I've always thought the Weather Report Prelude through Johnny B Goode section of this show (3-28) should be considered for a future Road Trips release. The Dark Star from the show is simply stunning!

This show was in Kansas City, KansasSoldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall 2-5-69 I was there, with several others from my town. An outstanding show. The GD opened for Iron Butterfly that evening, what a very strange night it was.
