Hehe good one!
I was looking at those unknown tracks on Disc 2, and then I realized what they are: (I THINK) the many outtakes Mike made before the final release of Incantations. They sounded quite different because Mike made most of them before his Exegesis period.
Some of those can be heard on the Reflections documentary from 1976. I realized this because I saw the title Piano Improvisation, and in 'Reflections' you can hear a different version of the beginning of Incantations Part 4, which of course is a piano piece.
Unfortunately, I can't find a fragment of it on YouTube. I have the whole film on DVD, but for those who have seen it; it's the scene where you see the nature shots and the little fox. It's slightly different than the version we know, and it's got that beautiful Roland SH-2000 flute synth sound.
I really hope those are the tracks I think they are!
