I'm with you. But it was revealed a while back (in an interview with Steven Wilson by @sjcorne) that some key tracks for Apple Venus could not be found after all. Not sure whether Andy or SW have considered the possibility of stem separation technology.This is great, although I am curious of what ever happened to Apple Venus Volume 1 that was announced back in 2021.. I think i'm in the minority that prefers their later stuff, so I'm pretty bummed and confused not hearing anything about that. Either way I'm still very glad this series is continuing and I'll definitely pick it up.
Aw, bummer!! I didn't see that in the Apple Venus thread here, and I must have missed it (or forgot!) when I read the interview. Seems like stem seperation might help, but I reckon theyre just going to hold onto it until they (hopefully) find the rest. This recent news is definitely a very good sign for the rest of the series, the fact that they're still able to find more multitracks bodes very well.
I thought they found the multitracks except for the singles and they were waiting to see if those could be found before proceeding. This series has been a long journey though so I could be remembering wrong.Can I assume that English Settlement is a no-go for multitracks?
Dang. Lots of Bay Area folks on QQ; who's a member of the SoCal contingent?Atmos mix of main album & 3 b-sides seemingly confirmed by L Acoustics' instagram page
