The Legacy Music Hour: Mixtape #4: Junko Tamiya
By Katie Levine on August 21, 2014
Episode four marked the first occurrence of the “composer focus”, an entire installment dedicated to showcasing the works of one musician. The tradition began with Junko Tamiya, and although a few selections by other composers sneaked into the original episode, the errors were excluded this time around to produce an all-Tamiya mixtape.
NOTE TO THE DETAIL-ORIENTED: Bionic Commando‘s “Area 1″ was composed by Harumi Fujita, but Junko Tamiya’s involvement as its arranger for the NES port merited its inclusion on the setlist.
