Week of October 5, 1992
Featuring an interview with STU NIXON, MIKE DOLGUSHKIN, and JOHN W. SCOTT, authors of DeadBase: The Complete Guide to Grateful Dead Set Lists.
Co-editor Stu Nixon recently posted this in The Well's Grateful Dead conference:
DeadBase Returns! And we’re looking for a little help from our friends…
We're back! Or at least we're thinking about it... By popular demand we are in the process of determining the feasibility of publishing a new edition of DeadBase and are looking for some help. While a totally revised DBXII is still a possibility for the future, right now we are considering putting out a reprint of DBXI with an appendix of corrections and additions to the setlists. While we are looking into the logistics of printing and distribution (can you say Amazon?) we are putting the word out to gather missing data.
That’s where you come in. We know that folks have found errors in the setlists since the last version of DeadBase came out in 1999, and we want to include a list of corrections in the new book. All proposed changes will be reviewed and evaluated, and contributors will be acknowledged in the new edition.
Please send corrections along with rationale / justification to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Stu Nixon for DeadBase
The music in this program includes a then-new song, written by Vince Welnick, Robert Hunter, and Bob Bralove, titled "Way to Go Home"; a favorite track from a mid-'70s Bob Weir side project; a 1966 Grateful Dead studio recording, "Alice D. Millionaire," that was later released on Birth of the Dead; and a much-requested live sequence from Madison Square Garden in 1987 that is regarded by many (myself included) as one of the peak performances of the year.
