Battle Of The Bands - Ballblazer

[size=140]For me this game has one of the greatest tunes of the 8-bit generation, originally written for the Atari micros it was later ported to a number of other home computers and consoles. So is the original Atari version the best, written to use the famous POKEY chip to it's fullest? Or it is one of the many ports?

Who wins? You decide![/size][/align:1cmwq33c]

As good as I find the C64 SID version I just can't look past the Atari music, the original version and still the best.

The other 3 versions of the tune are severly lacking indeed.

Atari for me with the C64 a close second.  I do, however, like the faster tempo of the 7800 version.
