Original Soundtrack composed by: Jeffery L. Briggs, Ken Lagace and Roland J. Rizzo
Amiga Soundtrack by: Allister Brimble and Anthony Putson
Mind... blown. Before today, I never realised that the track "Jine the Cavalry" from Sid Meier's Colonization is an actual tune, i.e. not an original composition specifically for the game! "Jine the Cavalry" (or "Join the Cavalry") was a popular song amongst Confederate Cavalry during the American Civil War so it's a bit anachronistic having the tune play in Sid Meier's Colonization but ah what the heck, it's a really catchy tune, so catchy that not only does it play when the game's title appears but it's also the first track you'll here when you boot up a game, every time.
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.
