Celebration Other Times & Places Reminiscing. Flower Power: The Music of the Love Generation. You know all these songs if you collect music from the era (or have watched a lot of television commercials or documentaries on the era), and more than likely have them, but for the price, it might be nice to have them all in one place. With hits from artists ranging from Sly & the Family Stone through Delaney & Bonnie, the Byrds, Janis Ian, the Lemon Pipers, Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Marvin Gaye, and many more, everything included here was a bona fide hit, and is regarded as historically inseparable from the period and as a key piece of rock & roll nostalgia.
Columbus Circle released the 8bit Sound Adapter for the Famicom alongside 8bit Music Power Final, which allows the you to connect your Famicom to speakers or headphones. Not perhaps the most attractive package, but does it’s job. The build of the adapter is really tight. It’s clear for sure, but not exactly crystal clear and there is static noise coming through during silence. Nothing major, we’re talking about a thirty years old machine after all. The best thing about the device is that it’s not bound to work just with 8bit Music Power Final. You can use it with any software that doesn’t require some other device in the expansion port, and with base Famicom it really does upgrade the sound like no other. Outside upgrading your machine with some sort of digital output, 8bit Sound Adapter should be on your consideration list for Famicom gear.
