25 Years of Back In Time

01/02/2023

A few days ago we passed an important anniversary: it has been 25 years ago that Back In Time was published by Chris Abbott, the first Commodore-64 remix album which was followed by several more in the series, and eventually spawned even live concerts and BIT Live parties, not to mention the most recent 8-Bit Symphony album where SID tunes were played by an actual, real symphonic orchestra. They can all trace their origins back to this little album that sold over 2500 copies - and what a journey it has been over those 25 years! So, please, take a moment to reflect on this momentous occasion and join us in congratulating Back In Time on its 25th anniversary!

Reyn Ouwehand's Nexus 6581

Nexus 6581

by Reyn Ouwehand

The first album to really demonstrate how C64 tunes could sound played live, and the first to feature demo music. Reyn Ouwehand is an ex-member of the famed "Maniacs of Noise", a C64 composer himself and a successful record producer. His considerable musical skill is showcased here. It was also demonstrated live in 2003 for Stuck in D'80s, his CD arrangements forming the bedrock of their repertoire. Highlights of this CD include the awe-inspiring C64-Oriental-tune medley "Asian Legends", and his definitive rock cover of Ben Daglish's crowd-pleaser "Deflektor". ** Now includes Nexus 6581-II tracks for download ** ** Now includes FLAC Album download provided by C64Audio Friend Daniel Martinsson **

Listening Recommendation

 The Last Ninja - The Wilderness

Arranged by Johan Andersson

Lovely flute, great trumpet - a unique, but undeniably signature Andersson-like take on a classic SID. It all sounds very organic, cohesive, perfectly mixed. Just great all around!

 Last V8 (short version)

Arranged by FTC

Nice tune, good nostalgical value. But please fix the bass loop (did you use one long sample for that?) as it's just out of sync with the beats.

Latest Review

 Sanxion Loader (Acoustic)

Arranged by trv

While very different than the C64 SID tune, this cover was beautiful in its own way. And, to be fair, it is closer to the spirit of the original Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet, of which Sanxion was itself a reinterpretation. ¶ At the end of the original Sanxion SID, one can hear a repeated pattern: DAH dit-DAH-dit dit-dit-dit-DAH ¶In Morse that spells *TRV". I found this acoustic version (by TRV: Trev Bailey) while googling to find out why those letters are hidden in the song. ¶I think this is a lovely rendition and hope Trev remasters this recording to add in the secret Morse code at the end which just happens to spell his username! ¶If Trev does remaster the track, I would suggest also considering a few other things: ❶ Trev is a better guitar player than audio engineer, at least that was the case back in 2007 when this was recorded. Perhaps enlist some help for a remix? ❷ The atmospheric sounds effects, while a nice idea, were too obviously canned and didn't work for me. Maybe they could be subtler or removed? ❸ As some other reviews mentioned, the 64 second intro didn't lead the listener in as one would have hoped. Perhaps it can be reworked or shortened? ❹ Most of the guitar playing was sweet and evocative, but there were a couple tricky parts that were distracting and could use another take: 1:55-1:58 and 2:15-2:22. ¶ Overall, I enjoyed this immensely, but I cannot give it top marks due to the audio mixing stumbles. ❀
