One Cryptical Envelopment [1:50] > Drums [0:14] > The Other One [4:08] > Cryptical Envelopment [6:33] ; [0:06] % [0:03] ; Dark Star [15:26] > Saint Stephen [4:39] > The Eleven [10:53#] % Death Don't Have No Mercy [#8:02] ; Alligator [3:40] > Drums [6:54] > Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks) [20:28] > Feedback [3:09]
Comments Nothing from this show appears on two From the Vault. After the second Cryptical: "thank you". After "one man gathers what another man spills" in Saint Stephen, Bobby says "that's exactly how it is". The Eleven timing does not include the "William tell" verse, since that is how the track IDs are set up on the circulating CDRs. At 3:55 into the Drums after Alligator, Jerry joins in with a Caution type solo.
Recordings 86 SB Alligator thru Feedback had been in circulation for several years, since it was played on GDH #364, but the complete show began to circulate in 1999 or 2000. The Warner Brothers boxed set also includes the Alligator thru Feedback sequence.

Encore Morning Dew [6:52] ; [0:21]
Comments This show was officially released as two From the Vault. An announcer introduces the band before Schoolgirl: "All right! It's time to either stand up, sit down, or shake your leg, or go for yourself - 'cause the Grateful Dead are here!". After Schoolgirl, Bobby says "Lady's choice - this number is a lady's choice". After "one man gathers what another man spills" in Saint Stephen, Bobby says "I want you to know that's how it is". The Eleven timing does not include the "William tell" verse, since that is how the track IDs are set up on the official release CDs. After Lovelight: "thank you, thank you, we got it, hold it, we got it, just do it, ok". The plug was pulled on the PA at 6:46 in Morning Dew and just the drums continue for another few seconds. After Morning Dew, Jerry says "got turned off - once again! Good night everybody". Then the announcer says "The law says that's all, so I guess that's it. Thank you once again"
