The Legacy Music Hour #84: Capcom

Popular game company Capcom is the focus of Episode 84.  So many games, so much music, where does one start?  Founded relatively late in the video game world (1983), Capcom certainly had a hefty roster of female composers, more so than any other company at the time, and so this episode is almost a celebration of women in video game music as well a company focus.  Brent and Rob explore a lot of the more obscure Capcom titles, but throw in a couple Mega Man tracks for good measure.  Also, even though no DuckTales music is played on this episode, the long-standing mystery of its composer is finally uncovered!  Full track listing below.
