Notes:
1. shntool confirms tracks on sector boundaries
2. This also circulates as 2/5/66, “The Questing Beast”, Berkeley. Please see the following deadlists comments to clarify what is included here. Most of the tracks have audible take numbers spoken before each take. Also, there are little clicks that I left in because these sound like they are when the tape was started before each take and not a digital artifact.

COMMENTS Scorpio studio outtakes. Multiple takes of listed songs. Material from these sessions was used to make the Scorpio 45 RPM record. See 07/??/66.

David Sorochty: This circulates as 2/5/66, 6/??/66, as well as 7/??/66. The list in DeadBase X is incomplete. This tape consists of numerous renditions of most of the songs and they usually are without vocals. This is definitely from recording studio sessions since there is a take number spoken quietly before most of them. This is what is on my copy of the Scorpio Studios outtakes tape which came dated as 2/??/66:
Tape #1 – Side A
Stealin’ takes 4 and 5
Stealin’ take 6 (vocals)
I Know You Rider take 1 (vocals)
Don’t Ease Me In takes 1 through 8
Don’t Ease Me In takes 1 through 5
Don’t Ease Me In take 6 (vocals)
Don’t Ease Me In takes 7 and 8# (cut)
You Don’t Have To Ask take 13
You Don’t Have To Ask take 14 (vocals)
Tastebud take 1
Side B –
Tastebud take 2 (vocals)
Cardboard Cowboy takes 1 through 4
Cardboard Cowboy take 5 (vocals)
Stealin’ take 1
I Know You Rider take 1
I Know You Rider take 2 (vocals)
Cold Rain And Snow (8 times with no take numbers announced)
Tape #2 – Side A
Cold Rain And Snow (no take number announced)
Cold Rain And Snow (vocals, no take number announced)
Cold Rain And Snow# (cut, no take number announced)
This also included the following on side A of the second tape:
1966 Studio (identified as possibly from the Scorpio sessions also) -Lindy (vocals)
Alice D. Millionaire (vocals) (see the ??/??/66 listing for more information on those) as well as these obvious filler songs; 1969 studio – I’m A Lovin Man (Pigpen and Weir vocals, Garcia pedal steel & John Tenney on fiddle)
Instrumental (Bucky’s Tune)

An edited version of this circulates as “2/5/66 Questing Beast Rehearsal”. Based on the list provided by Steve McHenry we can see that the differences are that the Questing Beast tape does not include:
a) takes 7 and 8# of Don’t Ease Me In (both are instrumental versions)
b) Cardboard Cowboy (takes 1 through 4 without vocals)
c) Stealin’ take 1 (instrumental)
d) Cold Rain And Snow# (the very last one)
e) the additional material that was identified as possibly being from the Scorpio recording sessions (Lindy, and Alice D. Millionaire)
f) the obvious filler material which was identified as being from 1969 -(I’m A Lovin Man and the instrumental referred to as Bucky’s Tune)

Steve’s notes indicate that his Questing Beast tape has a brief You Don’t Have To Ask which I have not noted on my full Scorpio tape. It is probably on the Scorpio tape and I just missed it. Steve has also reported that his tape does not have the take number spoken before each rendition as on the Scorpio tape. With the take numbers edited out and the filler removed in order to squeeze this all onto one tape, it might give the impression that this is a practice session.

See the 45’s produced under the “Scorpio” labels:

RECORDINGS 135 SB. See 02/05/66, ‘The Questing Beast’. See also ??/??/66 for additional songs often found as filler(?) on this tape, which may also be from these sessions. Consult vault sources for details.
