Stealin' / Don't Ease Me In (Scorpio Single)
Grateful DeadInitial release : June 1966
Scorpio Records 201
The first Grateful Dead release. A 7 inch single released on the small Scorpio Records label.
There were, briefly, two Scorpio Records based in San Francisco in the mid 1960's. The Grateful Dead recorded this single for the smaller and shorter lived of the two.
The larger of the two companies was an offshoot of Fantasy Records - subsequent Scorpio Records references and the UK release The Scorpio Records Story refer to this larger company and not the Grateful Dead related company.
Alternates takes of these two songs and unreleased versions of a number of other songs recorded during the Scorpio sessions were included on CD1 of the box set;
