If you were a fan of the Nintendo 64, there’s a good chance that you would have enjoyed at least one of the games made for the system by Rare…you know, stuff like Goldeneye 007, Donkey Kong 64, and Banjo Kazooie. Apart from being excellent titles, one other thing that ties these games together are the soundtracks, put together amongst others by Grant Kirkhope.
Kirkhope is a very successful game composer, having been nominated for several BAFTA awards during his career, and he even nabbed a place on the Classic FM Hall Of Fame this Easter for his work on Viva Pinata.
Over the past month, he has quite generously offered people the chance to pay what they want for the soundtracks to Banjo Kazooie, the sequel Banjo Tooie, and the spiritual sequel to Goldeneye, Perfect Dark. The soundtracks are available in a number of formats including MP3 and FLAC.
If you want to download the soundtracks, simply head to http://grantkirkhope.bandcamp.com/, and select the game from the sidebar. Enjoy!
