George Oldziey reports that the Wing Commander Jazz Albums have been shipped! If you haven't sent your address in - or you don't receive yours in a week or so, let George know what's up! The cover art by SabreAce just looks fantastic. Some of the initial plans for a future campaign to record even more Wing Commander music are in the very preliminary stages, so stay tuned in the coming months for that. It's been a long road to get all of this amazing music put together, but the results have been very impressive!
Greetings all! All the CDs for which I have received shipping instructions have been shipped. I sent off the last of them today, mostly overseas. So if you have not received them in a week or so let me know. Most of you should have already received them. I hope you are enjoying them!
Here's a fun compilation collage of both physical albums by Pete Andrew:
I'll keep you all posted on when the next phase of Volume 2 orchestral recording begins.
Thank you for your patience, as well as your wonderful support!
Finally in my hands!!! I've listened to this music from the Wing Commander games since I was a child and now, thanks to Master Oldziey’s great job, I’ll be able to do it better... much much better!
Retro Gamers Connect with Wing Commander 3
Retro Game Connect has a new episode, and it's all about Wing Commander 3. RGC is a show that we can really identify with - just a couple of nerdy guys talking about the good old days of classic gaming. This is their 184th episode, and they're actually new to The Heart of the Tiger. (2019-02-23)
Differences a True Collector Would Love
Red-Jackal recently posted a neat 1993 Privateer advertisement from Computer magazine. We've shown it off before, or so I thought, so I almost passed it by. It is a little bit sharper than the one we have in the archive though, so I decided to take a second look. (2019-02-22)

Wing Commander Enters the Retro Zone
Pix recently came across a pretty neat article in the UK magazine PC Zone. I really like it's graphical layout with the Dralthis overflying the slick text. The author is a big fan of the WC series and uses it as an example for awesome '90s games that were outside the realm of his usual fare. (2019-02-19)
