Hi NowhereNobody-- Long time, no gripe. Thanks for pointing out these minor errors. Sorry if this seems rushed, I'm working 50+ hour weeks right now, but I'm happy to take a quick moment to amuse you.

<<the big screen that it says: "Jimmy Buffett Workin' n' Playin' Tour '15". It does not say "Jimmy Buffett Workin' 'n Playin'", so I think the tour name changes are not legitimate.>>

Your original edits say "Workin' 'n Playin' Tour", while my changes simply removed "Tour", but your argument is that my edit isn't legit because it should say "Jimmy Buffett Workin' n' Playin' Tour '15". If that's so, why didn't you put it there in the first place?

<<IMO, this is just another case of Consistency throwing Accuracy out the window.>>

That might be your opinion, but the fact of the matter is you aren't taking your own advice. Both the song and @Tape tag had instances of both "Workin' N' Playin'" and "Workin' and Playin'". If you want to avoid collaboration, I suggest you avoid inaccuracies of your own.

In the meantime, I have changed the tour to "Workin' n' Playin'" and the song to "Workin' N' Playin'". Hopefully this will settle you down.

NowhereNobody, it's always fun. Maybe next tour I'll make a good faith change to cause you another tantrum. Until then… fins up!

Regarding the recent changes you have made to the Jimmy Buffett setlists:

First, if one went to a Jimmy Buffett show this year or watched him on Margaritaville.tv (like me), one would see on the big screen that it says: "Jimmy Buffett Workin' n' Playin' Tour '15". It does not say "Jimmy Buffett Workin' 'n Playin'", so I think the tour name changes are not legitimate.

Notice where the single quotes are. The video file links are readily available at buffettnews.com, and I have a screen shot I could upload, there does not seem to be the ability to upload here.

Second, the song that was written for the 2015 tour was released on ITunes sometime around the last American show in August and it is titled "Workin' 'N' Playin' "See this page: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/workin-n-playin-single/id1030494755. Also, note the capitalization and single quotes.

The setlist.fm people can call this Buffett tour and tour song whatever they want, but nowhere is the song or tour ever called "Jimmy Buffett Workin' 'n Playin'".

IMO, this is just another case of Consistency throwing Accuracy out the window.

I added a set list I picked up in the green room after Lou Reed in Passaic, NJ. Nov 6, 1976. It's very similar to the one you posted from a few days prior in Boston.
Apparently you were born 5 years later.

Hi,
I have some questions about setlists that you added. If you could visit the links below and respond on the setlist page, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Hey man,

I don't see any way of confirming it unless a bootleg surfaces, doesn't look like it so far. I doubt it was played, someone got it wrong. People even get songs off MR wrong!

I have this show recorded on Minidisc. Thanks for the setlist :) If you want a copy, contact me.

A while back, someone deleted the festival page for "Zaire 74" that I created; I'm not sure who it was, so I decided to mass send this message to every moderator. It's not a fake festival, and in fact has an article on Wikipedia, which is where I got the information from. I'd appreciate if it was not deleted a second time.

I don't think it'd matter if you changed alot of the new BOH songs to @Unknowns. I don't know if some people who are protective of "their" setlists would object though!

I can't remember exactly about the BOH setlist(s) but they put a few of them up on their blog.

Check your e-mails mate

cheers

About becoming a moderator, you would have to talk to one of the Administrators. They're in charge of picking the moderators. Actually I'm not even sure what their criteria is for determining who becomes a moderator. You can find a list of the Admins on the FAQ page:
http://www.setlist.fm/faq

In the mean time, if you find any problems that you don't want to take the time to fix one-by-one, feel free to notify one of the moderators and we can handle it. I went ahead and fixed the Tom Waits statistics.

Hey, Geeky,
Thanks for the songlist for Buffett at Kings Dominion - what a trip down (lost) memory lane.
Just a quick note on "The lawyer and the a$$hole". The link is for another song that is usually incorrectly attributed to Buffett. The A$$hole song is (I believe) done by David Allen Coe. Anyway, I have the lyrics to the Buffett song as well as the storyline behind it if you are interested.
Cheers,
Frick
