Original Soundtrack composed by: Jeffery L. Briggs, Ken Lagace and Roland J. Rizzo
Amiga Soundtrack by: Allister Brimble and Anthony Putson
Aye matey! I do love me a good hornpipe and that's exactly what you get when you play Sid Meier's Colonization! This piece of music plays after you've picked the difficulty level, the Empire you represent and your name. You're treated to a loading sequence where you watch as your ship is loaded to set sail on a grand expedition across the Ocean Sea! It's also amazing how similar London, Amsterdam, Seville and La Rochelle look during this loading sequence...
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.
