Good episode! I think this is the first time an Alberto Gonzales track came up on this podcast, but he’s a good, underrated composer. Would be nice if he came up in other expansion packs.
I’m more familiar with the Oath in Felghana arrangements of Ys 3’s soundtrack, but you can hear a small motif from the town theme in the X68000 version of Premonition. Not sure if it’s in any of the versions of Ys 3’s soundtrack, but it’s a cool reference.
The Scheme has a great soundtrack as well. Yuzo Koshiro actually uploaded an arrangement of I’ll Save You All My Justice with some of the Famicom VRC6 on his Soundcloud, which is pretty neat. Here’s a link, if you’re interested.
