    Default Spectrum/Amstrad 8-bit tunes...


    I'm currently making the rounds of the usual suspects of the 8-bit world (Speccy, Amstrad CPC, NES, and yes, everyone's favourite the C64) for my History of Turrican Project.

    In doing this, I wondered, what kind of quality and noteworthiness is there in the music catalogue of the ZX Spectrum, and the Amstrad CPC?

    Is there anything that redefined the landscape I need to hear? Any great triumphs that proved these machines could hold their own against the mighty "Commodorks"?

    I'm not trying to incite Format wars, mind you. I was a Commodork once. But for a misfiring power-block and no Datassette, I still would be. But I'm just looking for feedback on what's good in the Speccy and Amstrad archives.

    The music from the Amstrad CPC version of Kwik Snax was absolutely amazing. I've NEVER understood why nobody's remixed it - in fact I can't even find any sounds or graphics from the original game on YouTube!
