Episode 73: Jazz Music 2

The Cat Allergy Twins visit the genre of Jazz once again, having first explored the topic back in Episode 13.  Who are the Cat Allergy Twins, you ask?  Oh, that's just one of the many jazz-style nicknames Brent and Rob find for each other in this swinging edition of The Legacy Music Hour.  Check it out, you cool cats, and stop making these guys allergic.  Shoobie doobie wah yah yahhh!  NOTE: Rob made a huge error in that he accidentally played a track he had played on a previous episode.  Brent made an error in that he didn't notice Rob's error until it was too late.  As you may already know, The Legacy Music Hour makes a specific effort to not repeat tracks on any episode.  Oh, well.  Full track listing below.

  1. Hey guys, that Snoopy Concert track was Jam! Firstly, a lot of the instruments sounded a lot like instruments used in Phantasy Star II. Secondly, composition was awesome.

    Nathan from Portland
    Thirdly, and I'm surprised Switch didn't mention this, is that it sounds JUST LIKE SFII. :) More accurately, the bass line in the last measure just before it loops is one note different than the bass line for Zangief's stage on the Snes. Anyway, fun episode. Love the Jazz Hands pic.

    1. As it turns out and mentioned on later episodes, all of the music in Snoopy Concert was adapted from various Peanuts TV specials, so none of it was originally composed for the game. The one in this episode was actually a Dave Brubeck piece called Benjamin.

  2. More EarthBound representation here! Love it. Interesting of note is that the female voice on Venus Live is a sample of a lady actually singing. She's credited in the game's end credits, but I can't seem to dig up the name right now.
