Another great show Leon, firmly lodged in my phone and played on repeat. For the record I do like the Amiga very much and was so close to buying an Amiga 1200 recently. But the ST will always have a place in my heart as it was the one I grew up with. Keep up the good work.

Hearing Woodtick again took me back to being a little kid. Monkey Island and its sequel were some of my first games and remain favourites.

That's what I particularly like about the Special Edition orchestrations; for the most part they capture the sound I imagined in my head when playing through the original versions. Something about that peculiarly farty brass riff really captures the daft tone of the series.
