Project: Galway

Project Galway

by Martin Galway

Amazing project that gives you Martin Galway's C64 tunes recorded directly from his very own chip, as they were meant to be heard: with the most sensitive and well-balanced 6581 filter ever heard. Highlights of this CD include the previously-unhead music from Street Hawk, and the extraordinary sensitivity of his Wizball soundtrack. Alistair "Boz" Bowness imported Martin's own C128D and wrote his own cross-assembler for this. If you care about the quality of the SID going into your ears: add this to your collection.

Listening Recommendation

 Gianas Sister Is Born

Arranged by Verge

I felt something jump in me when I heard Giana Sisters' main melody play~ The leads were a bit behind the padding and all, but it still kept me all cool and wide awake.:-D

I'd say listen to all criticism and use the negative votes to your advantage :3 IMO you did it great but you can always get better ;D

Random review

 Tusker (Gurning 64 mix)

Arranged by K8-bit

A really good use of the original SID and modern digital effects to give the music from 'The Desert' level a real meaty and rocking sound. I love the drums you have put on this, proper tubthumping, and the guitars and synth parts are done cleverly and not overused. It's nice to hear that you've chosen to do this in a more traditional way rather than an over effected contemporary dance version. I cannot hear this piece being arranged another way now, well done, it really is brilliant, and I hope to hear more of your work.

Latest Review

 Last Ninja 3 - Wind

Arranged by Gavin Lucas

The best wind of Last Ninja 3 so far, its a challenging tune. I can see that some of the instruments were a challenge. It resembles the original really well and I guess more work on this seeing as its now 13 years old would be great to hear from this composer.
