LONG AWAY (instrumental)
Newly mixed track using 'Rock Band' stems of the song.

Hang on! "Rock Band" stems?
Where did these come from?
I thought I was on top of the stems until now....

Great job again! One purely subjective question...If you are going to break apart the intro from TYMD why not the outro as well?

^ ^ Here's my point of view…

The ADATR album actually doesn’t feature an outro which can be classified as a composition. After Teo Torriatte we have only a reprise of a Shepard tone melody which was a link between the ‘Introduction’ and ‘Tie Your Mother Down’ as well. With this approach we have a circle in an album.

The ‘Introduction’ composition in its 'clean' state ends with final guitar chord/gong around 0:45, after that we hear Shepard tone melody link to the next track for about 15 seconds.

You can see the note ‘Introduction - May’ under Tie Your Mother Down lyrics inside the LP gatefold, but there’s no ‘Outroduction – May’ note under ‘Teo Torriatte’ lyrics.

Examples of similar approach: Electric Light Orchestra ‘Face The Music’ 1975 and ‘Time’ 1981.
There’s a lot of untitled string sounds between songs throughout these albums which nothing to do with songs they link.

Fair enough! I admit I was hoping you had full versions of the Reel To Reel bits (TYMD, YTMBA, TT) that were shared as samples here and were going to surprise release them in this offering :P

What's the next album to be worked on?

Not sure what you mean...As in he could ask the right people to contribute? It would seem to be as good a time as ever and a worthy way to "release" them. :)

No, unfortunately I still don't have these tracks. Even if I will receive them from someone, I'm sure I'll be asked not to share them as part of these sets.  

By the way...

Like I said - worth a shot! :) Your pic isn't showing up for me so I headed over to BZ zone to see if you posted it there - and it still didn't work but what I got from a reply is that it's Jazz? If so....excellent! I'm assuming this will be another one disc-er most likely. Not a lot of archive material has leaked for Jazz....

and pity about the other tracks. I knew that was probably the call either you didn't have them or you didn't have permission...but it would have been a helluva way to introduce 'em :D

Just listened to your expanded version of "a day at the race", never had a better version! You did an excellent job, thank you so much. Looking forward to listen to your version the Jazz album :-)

Bit late on the uptake here, but these are great. The alternate MIH outros (Mother Love/IWBTLY) are vastly superior to what's gone before. Nice to have all the various edits/instrumentals in one place, too.

Thanks you, CMI.

I know that a lot of people don't like the mish-mash at the end of 'More Of That Jazz' track.
What's the best to do with the track for expanded 'Jazz' album edition?
Remove it in the album track or add 'clean' version as a bonus? I'm in dilemma with it...


The album itself should be musically exactly what it was in 1978.

What you did with I Was Born To Love You is cool, but I think that should be for disc 2. Call me a purist, but when you start changing the actual album it's getting dangerously close to George Lucas territory .. ! I'm of the opinion that albums shouldn't be touched, and on bonus tracks it's an open canvas.

Besides this - MIH is wonderful ! Great job on the track listing and the mastering. The extra bits of guitar (about a minute of it) and Roger vocal in the last You Don't Fool Me were a complete surprise to me !

And I'm prerty sure there's another bit of Roger vocal out there in another one of those remixes.

Can you elaborate on this 2012 'Royal Orb' USB Gift Box ? What else was on there?
