Choicest VGM - VGM #242 - Sid Meier's Colonization - The Reveille



Original Soundtrack composed by: Jeffery L. Briggs, Ken Lagace and Roland J. Rizzo

Amiga Soundtrack by: Allister Brimble and Anthony Putson

Today we have another military victory tune from Sid Meier's Colonization. This one is simply called "The Reveille" and it's a marching tune in style played by fife and drum corps during the American Revolutionary War aka the American War of Independence; which makes perfect sense considering that is in fact your primary objective in Colonization: to become independent of the old country whether that be England, France, Spain or the Netherlands.

EDIT (15/10/2016): A fellow YouTube user +Plastiware has alerted me to the fact that despite me originally advertising these tracks as the Amiga version of the soundtrack, it's probably not entirely accurate. I originally marked these as the Amiga version due to the source MP3s I used stating Allister Brimble and Anthony Putson as the composers, but when comparing these tracks to Amiga versions of the soundtrack on YouTube and then comparing it to a DOS CD version, it seems these are most likely from the DOS CD version. Apologies for the mistake.
