Great show I would love to find SHNs for this one.

Take a careful look at that second-set list. Bobby got sick -- was missing at the start of the set (hence the start with a jam) appeared briefly to start Playing in the Band, vanished for the rest of the show, and then reappeared to finish the show. We pestered Healy the next night in Rochester: "What happened last night?"

"Aw...Bobby was sick as a dawg, throwing up in the dressing room..."


SSSSSIIIICCCCKKK PEGGY-O.......CHECK THIS ONE OUT.....actually, the entire 1st set is fantastic as is the 2nd if a little more uneven (weir's illness?) than the 1st....

Easy to see why the band only played "...World to Give" 3 times. The song sucks. Best Jack-A-Roe ever,though.

"if i had the world to give" sucks? wow.
i havent heard this one, but the breakout version at red rocks was just amazing. gorgeous vocally and musically. the song is difficult to sing and has large scale tempo changes though, so im guessing thats why it was dropped. anyway, check out the RR version. youll think differently about the song!!

The "World to Give" is incredible. Jerry is so into it...huge power jam at the end.

Regarding "World to Give" of the 3 versions in existence people should really be seeking the one from 10-17-78 which outshines the other 2 significantly - especially during the end jam solo where Jerry crackles with the energetic spiraling solo wave crests that are more along the lines of an emotionally gyrating Morning Dew or Stella Blue - you all know the goosebump zones we all miss so much. As a matter of fact get all of 10-17-78, the second set is pure October octane!

Dave the mailman, maybe its YOU THAT SUCKS! World To Give is a BEAUTIFUL WONDERFUL SONG!
Yeah, it's YOU that SUCKS!!!

"If I Had the World To Give" is just an OK song for me. At best it could remind me of "Comes a Time" or "Stella Blue", at worst it reminds me of a disco pop song that could be found on a 1978 James Bond movie soundtrack. The 10-17 version is great, so is this one and Red Rocks. I can see how people wouldn't love this song too much. 1978 is not for newbies or people obsessed with '67-'74 Dead. I love every note they played from '77-'79. This version of "World" has a great Garcia solo at the end and Bobby's doing some great slide work! This is a killer show!

I was there; great treat having Bobby miss the beginning of the Second Set and Jerry just jamming. My recollection is that Bobby came back out during jack-A-Roe and stayed the rest of the set. I think if you listen to the music you will hear the rhythm guitar. Also, there was no encore; Playin' Reprise went directly into Around and Around. Bobby too sick for an encore.

@ Dave The Mailman you must have something wrong with your ears cause If I Had The World To Give is an amazing beautiful song. I'd go as far to say if you don't like that song you must not like true heartfelt Jerry Ballads cause it is an all around loving song. I was lucky enough to see JK sing it with Dark Star Orchestra more than a few times and it is all around perfectly beautiful!I sure wish Jerry would have kept playing it cause it is a true and pure love song. How can you not like Jerry singing a love song? REALLY?!!

Jam > Jack-a-roe to start Set II sounds pretty killer to this here listener.
-Just Exactly Perfect Band (11/07/2016)

... thank you Sirius for playing 11/20/1978 Cleveland show today ...

IKO IKO on & on ......

I love If I Had the World to Give. Sirius GD Channel playa the studio version a lot and I'm psyched every time since I never hear it listening to shows. The songwriting is next level as far as love songs go.

I mean (paraphrasing) "if I had the world I'd give it to you but sorry I don't have the world to give.... BUT... if YOU let ME be YOUR world, then I could give it to you." How can anyone deny that logic?
