Hey lots of people would love to hear the Grey Album without Jay-Z rapping on it. The beats on it are really good. Might the good people of this forum be interested in a collaborative project to recreate the whole album without Jay-Z? Might take more than a month but that would be a cool challenge

I've longed to hear the instrumentals ever since i first heard the album in 2004!
Not that i dislike the Jay-Z vocals, i just want the backing tracks.
I do think that re-creating the backing would be a mighty difficult task though.
They're so well done, and in such a very different style to anything i've ever attempted.
And as J.J said, finding the additional samples and getting any effects to sound the same is virtually impossible.
I've tried recreating "demo's" i've done myself....and they always turn out differently!
Sian's "While My Ticket Gently Weeps" is a good example....and that's just vocals over a basic instrumental. Sian had the original idea, and had started. When she showed it to me....i virtually fininished it in a couple of hours on her laptop. I then re-did it myself at home on my pc (listen to WTF 59). I then showed Sian again on her laptop....and she's re-doing a version herself.
ALL these tracks sound very very different!

I think the task is beyond me, i'd love to hear anyones attempts though.

Sorry, Windows958, but there's no way that's gonna work.

Seriously, the quickest way might be to contact Dangermouse.
I can't find his details just this minute but he was/is contactable.


Of course I know this is 'cheating' :P
