lackluster show...not much energy...the highlight for me is the amazing "world to give" that jerry delivers! they only performed that one like 3 times and this is the first ever performance of it...in any case it's the best thing going for this show...unfortunately after that amazing "world to give" they move into one of the dullest, slowest most lifeless Iko's i have ever heard!

ps- the sbd second set on archive sounds phenominal, and should be listened to by everyone.
row jimmy,
i agree that the "iko" is lackluster, but ALOT of "iko's" from this period are slower and more lilting in nature.
the whole second set delivers before drums, and then of course the BEAUTIFUL (words cant describe) "world to give" that follows is just earth shattering. you kinda had to have a let down after that, though i must say bob and the boys rebound nicely with "around and around", and the "us blues" encore, while unoriginal and unspectacular, was at least sufficient to close a very special night. just my .02.

ps- also 1st "Miracle", which would become a deadhead anthem of sorts.

It is utterly astounding to me how much this show truly sucks in comparison to 7-8-78 Red Rocks which on the other hand is a SPECTACULAR!! polar opposite. Anybody should definetly acquire 7-8-78 as that show is probably good enough to be considered classic. 7-8-78 is definetly one of the best of '78 with a particularly muscular second-set jamfest that purrs like a well tuned big block V8!! Unfortunetly this show does not even come close. It's almost as if the boys hung out in Colorado partying for 6 summer weeks and came back running only on extremely burnt sparse fumes. Strange how there were no shows anywhere else during that early July to late August '78 period. Also the "world to give" from 10-17-78 is much better...and the heartfelt spiral jams that are reminescent of a good Dew definetly DON'T SUCK!!

from the "Other One" to end of "world to give" one of the best face peelers I ever experienced, Jerry was right in front of me and her pulled my face into space.

oh yeah don't forget a KILLER Sugeree!!!

first show since billy broke his arm I believe hence the long break in the red rocks run
-Anonymous (03/06/2015)


According to Billy's book 'Deal", the break in the Red Rocks run was planned and his breaking his arm was a complete coincidence. Cause he broke it in Cali riding a horse, not in Colorado. Unless of course i'm remembering what i read all wrong.

No, your remembering right. But i've heard multiple versions of the story before, so, i think we'll go with Billy's memory on this one.
