Ben Dalgish made the music to ‘The Last Ninja‘, together with Anthony Lee and ‘The Last Ninja‘ game and music gave birth to a series of games, that has grown to a cult among old-skool game-nerds. Ben Dalgish also worked together with Rob Hubbard on ‘Auf wiedersehen Monty‘.
I went through some of my old data on my storage unit this morning, and I found some of my old downloads. Some of the songs are dated 1994-1995 but I cannot verify all of them.

I have selected some of my favorite tunes from David Whittaker, in the upcoming posts.
I think most people got acquainted with Karsten Obarski through his music editor – the SoundTracker – and the music scores that came with it.
