New member
A compilation of instrumental tracks from tracks that weren't originally instrumental:

A Passage to Bangkok
Closer to the Heart
Headlong Flight
Red Barchetta
The Camera Eye
Tom Sawyer
Vital Signs
Witch Hunt

Quaterspheres - this is a track I developed just screwing around, from Hemispheres

Countdown - remixed by me from the 5.1 sector box set, there is no NASA chatter in this version

Cool stuff! Neat to hear some of the subtle things that got buried in the original mix.

That’s the version of Signals I ripped and started listening to after it came out, which was at least ten years ago? I think a lot of fans of the synth era haven’t ever heard it and would get a kick of it. There’s enough differences that make you wonder why they chose to put on wax the versions of songs they did, especially “The Weapon,” and even a couple of Al’s solo’s have bits you can’t hear on the official LP.
I know, and it’s awesome. There are a lot of subtle differences. Its almost like they used a different take for the album for the 5.1 mix

I am almost positive some of Ged’s vocals on “Subdivisions” are from different takes, not to mention how further into the background Neil’s voice is in that mix.
