^^^ best one of the SoundCloud lot. Too bad RDJ ruined the mastered release by chopping part of it out. I'll never forgive him unless he fixes it.

Sorry but I totally missed this.. I downloaded it when he uploaded it first time and it have always sound the same.

16.9 mb should the track be right?

The mastered release, titled "28 organ 1.1 [ru,ec,+9]" is only 6m40s.  The original unmastered soundcloud upload is 7m26s.  RDJ totally ruined the continuity of the piece, not sure why he had his head up his ass that day, but he did. I wish he would have ruined someone else's favorite SC track, since he insisted on ruining ONE.

Now I hear that Come To daddy version and yes this is so strange thing to do.. Is this why he taking down tracks? 

He don't seem to know what to do with the tracks or he is not happy over something and need to change/tear up parts.

Lol so there is a minute of silence in there or what?

No, I lined up the matching parts to show which part he cut out.

He took away that cool vocoder part "yYYAAYyyighaygyabh"

Maybe he saw that the track were becoming hyped so he wanted to release it official as a part of Come To Daddy but wanted to take away that part to make it more "seriosly"..

saying "Fly away babies" after all that time made me think he was always afraid to let go of them for some reason... and now that he has, and has been deleting or modifying them all this time later then that supports my theory.

RDJ, if you read this, please understand that I nominated, voted, cheered for and pomoted Organ 28 to be on the list to be cleaned up and released, so it was quite devastating when the mastered version FINALLY came out... I listened to it with a huge smile on my face humming along with the memory of the unmastered SC release in my head, and then all of a sudden the smile went away when I realized that a whole transition had been excised. WTAF?!  I'm filing this on WATMM as an official complaint against what you did to Organ 28.

he cut out a part of the track because it sounds better that way, the fuck are you on about? he did it with Ventolin way back in 1995, and you could still listen to the full version because he made both edits available, like he did with this.

i mean, do you realize that musicians sometimes edit their compositions?

It is a lazy edit (self-admitted, IIRC) that made it sound worse. Only one edit available in cleaned-up format, not paying for it. Removing a chapter from a book after publishing it doesn't erase the history. Junk edit, head up his ass that day.  << coming from a huge fan

Remember grabbing that one from Rephlex back in the day in a very mulchy low bitrate

ps. Is any lovely person still archiving these, the last one I grabbed from the mega archive was '279 - 1211 - popcorn.flac' from December 2018 (which now seems to be vanished on the mega site) and the archive.org link at the top here seems to be a few behind that one.

Crap, I missed that one. Anyone got more info about that one and whether it is the only one missing from the sheet now?

Spreadsheet is updated:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11ouNaaVrNp60Ib34Kp0TO1n1XSc7-9DvfiZ9ZiTiD2c

Mega is updated, except the filenames don't take 279 Popcorn into account, will need to be fixed when I get up to speed on 2018-2021:

Why not just patch in the missing bit from the soundcloud version of Organ? If you’re feeling fancy you could also analyse the EQ changes and try to replicate the compression and whatnot to make it more seamless. An amateur pro tip!

Would've been easier to just not mutilate the track. But yea, taking the original SC upload and fixing the track it myself is well within the realm of possibility. Someone had to do that with the botched Analord WAV too.
