Why don't we have Rob Dougan vocals? He released an instrumentals album for "Furious Angels"
not every instrumental works for a substraction. Try it with Stylo, it has (purposely I think) maybe 0.1 BPM difference with the original which is enough to make it impossible. And I think Rob Dougan is better at doing instrumental
I'd really like to give a try with Cotton-Eyed Joe though... even if I think its too old to be recorded 100% digitally, which makes, again, (simple) substraction impossible.
You're right that Dougan's real talent is in his instrumentals, but his vocal performance on "Born Yesterday" was awesome. Really gave that song an added vibe that the instrumental by itself just doesn't have. With the vocals, I could possibly remix the Furious Angels
album to be more danceable
I know the BPMs are sometimes slightly different, but can't that be overcome somehow when both recordings are digital and have the same effects going on, like on Furious Angels?
There's a full version and instrumental on the original Cotton Eye'd Joe CD single.
