"The original version of Waiting for Cousteau is 75 minutes, but itís only 47 on the album (22 minutes on the LP). And nothing in the piece is repeated, not one single moment.
Ė So, every time you hear a *plink* on the piano, thatís your finger, actually hitting the key?
Ė Yes, exactly.
Whereas various listeners attached themselves to JmJ saying various interviews software responsible for WFC.
Whilst I always maintained there is No computer program in 1990 No AI in 2019 that could display depth profoundness piano WFC.
Why would JmJ many times say it was software ?
Simply because JmJ revealed his innermost profound self for the first time on record.
Therafter realising what he had done JmJ wanted to distract listeners from this.
Notice fluffy jolly Calypso 1 that we accept as JmJ "we know" balances WFC profoundness.
Too bad the interviewer made no effort to ask for a copy of the 75 original... Or maybe he did, but we'll never know.
P.S. What user named '1906' has mentioned is false. His 60 min file is just one of those sliced copy-paste edits that have been circulating through this thread.

A pity Francis fell out with JMJ and became unreasonable. I would still love to hear Experimental 2001 someday. And all of AOR. I guess Experimental 2001 would've sounded something like the Bourges Audio Brunch 2002 music (and it probably is some of that music I bet)
And WFC is one of my very fav tracks! I'd love to hear the full 75 mix
JMJ fan since 1991

They're either never going to release it, or release it when they can easily cash in on Jarre's name for whatever reason. Which is a shame, because I'd love to hear it.
The former, i.e. never. The latter option is not realistic - I doubt anyone will ever consider this album an easy cash. Let's not forget why this album was never released - the reason is that the album was, pardon my French, "utter sh8" and it was delievered by JMJ only because he wanted to get out of the Sony/FDM relationship. I honestly doubt he (or whomever actually did it) put any effort into it, and even the album name is a clear indication of that (and was probably also a tongue-in-cheek justification of its alleged poor quality: "see, it's crap, because it's EXPERIMENTAL, get it?"). They will never release it, because they still make money selling GOOD JMJ albums and they most certainly will not want to jeopardize the "JMJ" brand. They didn't even want to release Sessions 2000 (and obviously since they kinda HAD to pick something they went with the "lesser evil" - i.e. S2K).
