Choicest VGM - VGM #267 - Sid Meier's Civilization - Russian Theme

Screenshot of Stalin from Sid Meier's Civilization


Original soundtrack composed by: Jeffery L. Briggs

For our final track from the classic Sid Meier's Civilization, we have Russia's theme aka the Freo Dockers theme...er I mean, "The Song of the Volga Boatmen". It was probably a bit controversial having a Soviet dictator like Stalin as the leader of Russia although the theme definitely suits him, just check out renditions of this song by the Red Army Choir - fantastic.

The music was recorded through DOSBOX and consequently this is DOSBOX's emulation of OPL3 I believe, the FM synthesis sound chip used in a lot of old Soundblaster cards.
