Sorting through my hard drive and found this - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars Acoustic Mixes.  Can't remember where it came from and there is no info with the files.

I was wondering if anyone knew about this ?  Is it what it says it is, or is it fake tracks made by someone.  Either way, I thought it was quite a nice listen.

it's either some of the 5.1 files/from guitar hero etc or they split the songs with an app
there's free online or you can pay for several that promise to create the 'stems' for you

Thanks, however the link seems to be expired - seems to go to spam / non-relevant downloads now, unless Malwarebytes is being very protective here (still letting non relevant pages come up when I selected the download button and the download link url each time, but I was able to close those of course).

My view is there taken from the 2003 Ken Scott 5.1 mix, using the stems, I have a similar folder and also another version called Ziggy Stripped Bare.

I've had a piece of software for some time now called 'DVD Audio Extractor' which will rip a 5.1 in to separate channels for each track.

There are a couple of allegedly acoustic versions.
I suspect that at least one set is done using Spectral Editing as you can still hear the ghosting of the removed material, whereas if it were a genuine acoustic mix the tracks not required would have been muted on the console, not 'rubbed out' digitally leaving traces of their being there. In this instance I am thinking of CD2 in the 'Sound & Vision' 2CD/DVD version of the Ziggy STardust album '50th anniversary edition' with the BBC material - it's worth having for the stereo BBC material, but the 'Ziggy Stardust Naked' material is faked by means of a tool called 'Spectral Layers' (at least, if I were a degenerate gambler this is what my money would be on).

There's also another set called 'Ziggy Stripped Bare' which is also probably fake but it's done a lot better than the other one.

There are some real ones, mainly demos, with vocal/Piano and/or acoustic guitar, plus the superb 6 track BBC session with just Bowie & Ronno - the only thing from the SPiders years in session that is officially available in stereo and it is simply sublime.

the stripped-down 'mixes' of the YA tracks on many a bootleg have been run through an online file splitter
there is many a stems pack out there too

Sadly I know - these are ridiculously easy to spot, as the removal always leaves traces of what was scrubbed out as the tech really isn't there - and never can be either, as full removal requires perfect knowledge which we do not have as soon as any reverbs or resonance is in the mix - so there will always be ghost remains of what was eliminated. Some are easier to spot than others but they are almost all fakes.
What a fucked up world we are all living in, huh?
