Version 2 of the Fully Finished Studio Outtakes in Chronological Order was released in September by Cpt.Acid and Empress Valley grabbed this chance to release it under their label, however fully crediting the maker on front cover! Here phase correction and new equalization were applied to all tracks, there as also a new order for these tracks. The equipment used for this version 2 was iZotope RX 10 Spectral Recovery on all tracks and since the origin of those files was lossy, it was needed. This s the second remaster done by Cpt.Acid and until we get the original tracks in lossless form certainly the best sound output. In effect the sound is much richer than in other similar releases that makes this 2nd version the best yet. Conversely, packaging is not up to standards, with just some black & white shots inside the gatefold cover and a poor looking front cover. Anyway, listening to these outtakes there is one consideration that has to be done, comparing them with the Forty Licks released takes, it is impossible not to notice how much better these are making it yet more incomprehensible the reason why so few of them have been officially released.

The best toys are the ones that are both educational and multi-purposeful.
