Original Soundtrack composed by: Jeffery L. Briggs, Ken Lagace and Roland J. Rizzo
Amiga Soundtrack by: Allister Brimble and Anthony Putson
Once again, I find more music in the Sid Meier's Colonization soundtrack that is based off actual pieces of music. In this case, we have "Joe Clark" that's based off the tune "Old Joe Clark". Apparently it's an old folk song/mountain ballad that was "sung during World War I and later by soldiers from eastern Kentucky". Joe Clark is said to have been a mountaineer born in 1839 and murdered in 1885. Despite the tune being quite old, it's still anachronistic as background music in Sid Meier's Colonization considering it is set during the American Colonial era.
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.
