  Dr. Awesome:
Original Amiga Works
Year: 1988-1994
Style: Chip-tunes!

This 5-CD album contains 100 tracks (it's actually really 105 tracks, but because of CDBaby's limitation of 100 tracks per album, I had to join a few tracks together into one audio file, bringing the 105 music tracks into the 100 CD tracks).

The music is my original Amiga compositions which I made as "Dr. Awesome of Crusaders" back in about 1988-1994 using only an amiga and various programs such as Soundtracker, Noisetracker, Protracker, OctaMED and JamCracker.

The music is entirely composed with 8-bit samples playing in 4 audio channels and with stringent memory limitations. When I made this collection / album in 2014 I decided to leave the music exactly as it came out of the Amiga. No processing, mastering, equalizing, or anything else has been done to improve the sound. This is exactly as we heard it in the old days on the Amiga. I did consider playing around with panning (less extreme left/right), some reverb, some mastering, etc. to make it sound "better", but in the end I decided that I wanted to keep this 100% true to the originals, so I left them exactly as the originals.

This album (and its individual tracks) is available to buy and download via various services including CDBaby, iTunes, Amazon MP3, 7Digital and others - and also available to stream via services like Spotify, Wimp, XBox Music, Google Play Music, Samsung Music Hub and others.

The artwork is a drawing also made entirely on Amiga, by legendary Amiga graphics artist Rico Holmes (Superfrog, Alien Breed, etc. etc.).
