Wouldn't be the 2nd either... the Music Minus One records came out in the sixties (or late fifties?)it's a great idea, but you won't be the first person to do this. check out the "turn it up & lay it down" series of CDs for an example...if you can come up with another set of playalong CDs then so much the better!
But I'll agree that an updated version - maybe an ongoing series of new songs every 3 months or so - would be a nice idea. Remember that recording tracks and manufacturing discs is expensive, and doing it right means getting players who can approximate the sound or the original recording, otherwise the fun factor (and resulting sales) will be greatly diminished. I doubt anyone is interested in midi versions of songs.
