Tenchu, nice hearing from this PSX classic again.

But hey, how could i forgot this one, from a game many people did not play back then on the SNES.

To me, the Proto-"One Winged Angel". The final boss theme from Lufia 2 (gloriously remastered). Enjoy!

"Slammin' Sam Miller" is restoring the soundtrack for Donkey Kong Country 1-3.

Due to hardware limitations of the time, the SNES console's audio output was heavily compressed. His restoration efforts seek to recreate the songs without compression, and "This was made possible by locating the sounds from workstation keyboards and drum machines such as the Korg Wavestation, Roland S770, and Roland R8, and plugging them into the music instruction data ripped from the game, plus a little mixing magic to create might have sounded like with the veil of 16bit compression lifted."

Check out the playlist of completed tracks here. He hasn't restored them all yet, but rest assured Aquatic Ambiance, Fear Factory, and Stickerbrush Symphony are ready. He also offers FLAC and MP3 downloads.

This is a huge one-two punch of goodness to me. It satisfies a nostalgia craving I never knew I had, and it also resonates with my continued (if slow!) foray into learning to play the keyboard. On that latter note, I've set up my MIDI controller and digital audio workstation to be able to play the original (compressed) instruments from these games (and other SNES classics) - but knowing more about the original hardware is really intriguing!!

Thanks for posting those Preng. I will listen to them. I loved the Donkey Kong Country games as a kid.

Nice. Glad that you posted a DKC 3 track, most people ignore this one but the it has a great soundtrack.

I played some Garou - Mark of the Wolves today and the OST is pretty solid. Especially Grants Theme stuck with me.

Since i've been playing an unhealthy amount of Pokemon Sword and Shield (yes i really mean BOTH editions), this is my favorite track so far (composed by the one and only Toby Fox).

I had to Google this to make sure it wasn't a joke or something. I have no idea why this is in a Flintstones game but this is delightful! I just looked up the rest of the soundtrack and it's like if Aphex Twin made an SNES game.

This is still a jam.

Please see attached 2020 annual renewal.
