Can someone who has the LSL6CD please contact me? I'd like a lossless rip of Tom's enhanced version of the digital "Cell Block Love", if indeed it is on the physical CD (maybe it was made available later?).

I'd be very interested in the Greatest Hits of Larry 6 Medley actually.

I've been working on my CD rips to get them up to the standard I want them to be in for my own personal library, and I am happy to share my current progress with everyone (while we wait on Andrew to add them to the site :mrgreen: )

Here is the address: http://alderem.noip.me/QuestStudios/OriginalCDs/

Give things a listen, and if you find any glitchy tracks or any other errors, please let me know.

Revised the tagging on these albums, as I decided I wanted to include the game name in the title field:
  • LucasArts Anthology
  • Sierra Soundtracks Volume 1
With SPECIAL THANKS to goatmeal1, added the remaining albums:
  • Legacy
  • Leisure Suit Larry 6
  • Sierra Soundtracks Volume Two
  • Sierra Soundtracks Volume Three
That should be it. I've tagged everything to the best of my knowledge.

In some cases I've chosen to split attribution between "Artist" and "Composer", mainly for Game Arts titles, so you'll see Silpheed attributed to Mark Seibert and Fire Hawk to Rob Atesalp, but the original Mechano Associates' Japanese composers will be in the respective "Composer" fields.

I've tried also to conform to the official numbering/titling formats of games, e.g. EcoQuest and Leisure Suit Larry use Arabic numerals (2, 3, 4...) but these are exceptions and most Sierra games use Roman numerals (II, III, IV...).

There are probably still errors, and I know of at least one inconsistency (Chris vs. Christopher for Christopher Stevens, as credited on different albums). I put this together pretty quickly. I'll happily accept corrections, after a short break.

Update: Corrected missing Comment tags for "Space Quest IV (with Space Quest III Selections)."

Awesome, awesome work Marten. You are really a bedrock of this community. Thank you.

Composer fixes:
Inca & Inca II - Gilles Douieb, Callet not needed (he did SFX)
LSL5 had additional music by Braymen
QFG2 had additional music by Seibert
SQ4 was Allen, Seibert and Atesalp

Otherwise, it's correct.
