Legacy Music Hour #66: Racing Games 2

Brent and Rob take their second lap on the topic of Racing Games.  This time, they make a conscious effort to not play anything from Super Mario Kart, Road Rash, and F-Zero, and instead, explore lesser known games such as Final Lap Twin, Al Unser J. Turbo Racing, and GP-1.  Buckle your seat belts, start your engines, enjoy the episode, and they’ll see you at the finish line, right here, on the Legacy Music Hour.  NOTE: Regarding the end of the episode, that’s not a fart.  Full track listing below.

    good show! gems I’m glad to see appear in it: top gear, nigel mansell world championship. as a kid I used to put NMWC on and spend a while with the title music playing before getting on with the racing.

    barry leitch has done some amazing soundtracks for C64/amiga games and his work on top gear rally for the N64 was great, very amiga-ish. it’s almost a shame that you don’t cover music from non-consoles of the era since his theme for lotus turbo challenge 2 is classic vgm and would have fit the theme.
