This is eleven hours of all of the album’s isolated tracks, solo’d drums, vocals, horns, bass, guitars - every individual piece of every song untangled and laid bare. These aren’t royalty free, but any and all remixing / sampling / twisting / creative reuse and reimagining for your personal, non-commercial use is highly encouraged. And if you want to sample for commercial release, just get in touch. Enjoy!"
