LMH Mixtape #78: Beyond 16-Bit 2

Hey, what's that buried at the bottom of your trick-or-treating pillowcase?  No, it's not a copy of Time Lord -- it's another Legacy Music Hour mixtape!  And while Halloween is all about celebrating the spiritual beyond, there's definitely something fitting about using the holiday to celebrate the musical beyond, too.  So, enjoy this collection of tracks from the spiritual realm past the 16-bit era as supplied by Brent, Rob, and two special guests: Tetris Attack master Pablo Bert and video game music cover artist Stedman Wilson.

LMH Mixtape #77: Sunsoft

If you weren't already well acquainted with Sunsoft's signature sound, the Legacy Music Hour focus featuring Bucky's expert commentary was an education you'd never forget.  Put your hands together for that signature bass sample, those driving beats, the soaring melodies, and yes, the occasional call-and-response meow.  All in all, this mixtape might just be the moment you've all been waiting for.
