The 8bit Spindle – Track 02 – Monty’s Still Running

I first got a copy of Monty on the Run by dubbing the cassette tape in-store at the Caloundra Chandlers store. Karma got me though. My Commodore 1530 (C2N) Datasette chewed the tape and I subsequently went back to Chandlers about bought an original. It was one of the few originals I actually owned.

This one harks back to the 80’s when saxophones reigned supreme in pop music. Since these are scores from computer systems of the 80’s, I thought it would be a nice memorandum. Besides that, “Monty on the Run” was a classic, frantic game with cornerstone musical pieces by the legendary Rob Hubbard.

For The 8bit Spindle, I’ve chosen to do a rendition of the high score theme from this game. I had a picture in my head of Monty running off endlessly into the sunset and I think this track lends itself to sax’s.
