Most if not all of Chris Huelsbeck's early game soundtrack library - Shades, Rainbows, To Be On Top, Turrican, et al. - is now available in lossless quality at Bandcamp.

Seeing those old-school album covers brings back some memories. big_smile

And Huelsbeck's new Turrican Anthology is now available as well, each of the four volumes available for download separately.  From the album description on Bandcamp:

Chris Huelsbeck presents: The »Turrican Soundtrack Anthology«, a comprehensive 4 volume collection of music from the Turrican series of games, faithfully recreated, arranged and updated with high end studio sounds.

Volume 1: Turrican 1
Volume 2: Turrican 2
Volume 3: Turrican 3, Mega Turrican and a large portion of Super Turrican
Volume 4: Super Turrican 1+2, plus an 11-minute "Turrican 2 - Anthology Suite" arranged by Roger Wanamo and performed by the WDR Orchestra

Anybody given this a listen?

I backed enough money to get the physical CD + the USB stick with all the original music, ripped professionally for this project. I just want the music, I'll give/sell the physical stuff later.

So far, I've only listened to the first volume. It's good. Not special, at least not yet. I don't know the original music well, but the arrangements sound straightforward. I mostly prefer that, since I like stuff that stick quite close to the original material, enhancing it and building around it, not overpowering it.

Namorbia, I call dibs on the USB stick tongue. Forgot all about upgrading my pledge to get that too. And really should give this a listen someday, even if I want wait for the physical set.

I'm not so sure I want to sell that USB stick smile I actually need one and if it's cool and practical I might keep it. I'm also getting two big posters, but I'm unsure what I'll do with them.

Looks like Hülsbeck will start shipping the CDs next week. A forum member already contacted me about the CDs, so those are taken smile

I'd like to hear people's thoughts on the orchestral arrangement by Roger Wanamo. I saw it live and liked it a lot. It really kept the pumping action feel of the Turrican music. I think it had a mediocre slower part, but that's just because I didn't recognize the melodies of that part. I'm really looking forward to listening to the originals and then listening to the arrangements again.
