Marc Weidenbaum, author of the book Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works Volume II, in the 33 1/3 series, shared this collection of ambient favorites from the account of user18081971, aka Richard D. James.
James has shared more than 200 previously unreleased tracks via SoundCloud. Weidenbaum created the Selected Ambient Works Volume 3 playlist by identifying tracks that had similarities to tracks on the previous official release.
What does and doesn’t belong in this Volume 3 is up for debate. I’m emphasizing material that has an apparent parallel to the material on Volume II, including tracks whose titles include a “SAWII” reference.
Arguably, a Volume III in the series would have a distinct character to the previous volumes, much as Volume II was distinct from 85-92.
