The following is extracted from www.deadlists.com:
One source says this recording originates from 10 inch 8-track master reels at 15ips, and it circulates on DAT labeled as Multi-track SBD>DAT and on CDR as Multi-track SBD>DAT>CDR. However, David Gans received this Alligator sequence from Dick, labeled as 8/22/68 on a 1/4-track reel he made from Bear's cassettes. Copies of David's reel now circulate on CDR correctly labeled as SBD:MC>RR>Sonic Solutions>CDR. Perhaps more of this show exists in the vault on reels or cassettes?

Excellent -- but go listen to the full show
There are three versions of this show here at archive. The one called cotsman is the best: it has the material from 8/22 and is complete. It is here: http://www.archive.org/details/gd68-08-22.sbd.cotsman.14915.sbeok.shnf
This version, called Jools is also from 8/22, but contains only the second half, and is missing some of the best material of the show.
In the one called koucky, the second half (from Alligator) is definitely from 8/21 – it is note-for-note the same as for the 8/21 show here at Archive.org.
This Jules version is missing a fine St. Steven and Eleven, a great Dark Star and Death Don't have No Mercy, and a stellar Other One>New Potato. Go Check out the full cotsman version.
I really like this show.
But this show is part of a great run of shows on 4 consecutive nights: 8/21, 8/22, 8/23, and 8/24 (released as Two From the Vault – which is probably actually one show, from 8/24).

The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" August 22, 1968 at the Fillmore West, San Francisco, CA, U.S.A.
Super 68' Fillmore Soundboard!
August 21, & 22 at the Fillmore West are "Must Have" shows! Get em' all brothers and sisters. The 21st show is bettet than this one in my opinion:

Best drum solo
I'm listening to everything in order and I can say without a doubt that this is the best Drum solo to date. Sound is crystal clear.
4 stars because it's incomplete but what's here is great.

Full show available at...
http://tela.sugarmegs.org/gd1968-08-22. Right click to Save As, to download St. and the rest (??) of the set, including merely another version of The Eleven just six months after they first performed it.
But even partial material here is worth the listen. The Dead at their peak, for my ears.
