"The Amiga Works" by Allister Brimble - Kickstarter Project

Allister Brimble has just launched a Kickstarter project for his new double album "The Amiga Works". He will create up to date CD quality versions and remixes of his best musical works from the Commodore. The album artwork and an A2 poster will be designed by Rico Holmes who was the inspiration and artist behind the original Alien Breed series and other Team 17 games. Visit Allister's Kickstarter page.

Quote:
"I have received many requests to create new versions of my tracks in the past, but I never felt I could improve on them.. until now. The technology exists to inspire me to create new versions of my tunes for these much loved games from the Commodore Amiga.
" - Allister Brimble
As a big fan of his work I am very excited about this project. Recommend you get over to the project page now and make a pledge!

I pledged £50 this morning. You get quite a bit for that level of donation - the double CD pack signed, "Sounds Digital" CD album signed, a poster, and a limited edition USB stick with the audio files and original MODs.

Id have gone for the 50 quid one, but it's sold out. Looks like it'll be the 40 for me. Cool, thanks for sharing!

I told him about EAB over on Amibay but he only posted the once over there so I guess he is a busy boy...

Current tracklist is:

1. ALIENBREED
2. ALIENBREED EVOLUTION PART 2
3-7. SUPERFROG LEVEL TUNES (ALL AS INDIVIDUAL TRACKS)
8. ASSASSIN
9. AMIGA FORMAT DEMO (SEXY ROBOT)
10. FULL CONTACT
11. BODY BLOWS
12. PROJECT X
13. IDEA2 (FROM THE SUPERFROG DEMO)
14. TRODDLERS & SELECTED LEVEL TUNES
15. ZEEWOLF
16. ZEEWOLF 2
17. SPELLBOUND DIZZY (IF I CAN GAIN THE RIGHTS)
18. ALIENBREED 2
19. ALIENBREED TOWER ASSAULT
20. OVERDRIVE

But once you are backer you can suggest you own wish and Allister promised he would think about these wishes.

Well this sounds more like the way it should be, compared to the Turrican one.

I like it, but I don't think Alien Breed Evolution part 2 fits to the album named 'Amiga works' much.

I'll certainly cover all the tracks I'm allowed to. New option is now available to get a personal thankyou from me in the CD booklet btw!

also there's a remix competition open to all backers.. the best one will go onto the CD. In addition Jimmy Fredrickson will be providing his track from Full Contact (menu tune) along with possibly a big name guest track!

well considering it is already a cover of the original amiga tune, I think it fits fine, plus it's being extended to include the rest of the Amiga original that the evolution track didn't cover.
