Are there any existing recordings of Alan Watts that don't contain a distracting background track? If what he has to say is actually useful, there is no need for the cheap trick.

Yes: https://www.alanwatts.org/

Also (good starter collection): https://www.discogs.com/Alan-Watts-Out-Of-Your-Mind/release/...

(There seems to be a small industry of YouTubers taking snippets of Watts and adding music and images to make short inspiring videos. To be fair, most of them don't do the background music thing.)
