Some time ago I downloaded the song "Dragons Legend" of Koto.
MyVoice (Jukke Sundqvist) made it earlier.
I'm an old fan of Koto and discovered it was based on the "Siegfried's Mix"
version. It did not contain the voice samples, but considering the overall
quality, MyVoice did a really good job with this one. Sounds great!

The reason why I decided to remix this one, after such a long time is simple.
I recently ran into some good voice samples from the game "Dragons Lair", the
same source Koto used for its voice samples in "Dragon's Legend".
You find a lot of this stuff on YouTube today, but always with voices and
music mixed together. So the samples you make always contain the background
music. However, in one case the voice samples were recorded on a separate
audio track. Perfect for sampling....
With this samples I had a good change to make the song complete.

Some of these samples had static flutter (not strange with a game from 1983),
so I used Audacity to filter that out. I also discovered that Koto pitched
them one note higher for use in "Dragons Legend". (Pitching up makes the
samples also a bit shorter.)

The "Siegfrieds Mix" uses only half of the original voice samples. Koto did
use an extra two samples from the game intro in the "Maxi Mix" of "Dragons
Legend" (together with some more nice adaptions), but added also the samples
with Japanese talking.

I made a remix of this song with MilkyTracker and included the game samples
Koto used (Daphne's hint, game intro samples, oooh-sound, and the background
effects from the anvil attack scene). Also I mixed in some of the instrument
changes, drums and stereo effects of the Maxi Mix, together with two drum
sequences of my own. At last I added extra info in the instrument list,
together with the lyrics.

The result is a very nice combination of these two versions of "Dragons
Legend", which comes very close to the overall dynamic atmosphere of the
original Koto song. This without making to many changes in the original song,
which is to my opinion already good. Most of the changes I made are inspired
by the changes Koto made in the Maxi Mix. It got a staggering length of
almost 8 minutes, but doesn't get boring for a single moment.

It really was a lot of fun making it.
Jukke Sundqvist, if you are reading, this one is for you.

------- Lyrics -------

Please save me!
The cave is locked
with a key.
The dragon keeps it
around his neck.
To seige the dragon
here's the magic sword

Dragons Lair:
The fantasy adventure
where you become
a valiant knight
on a quest to resque
the fair princes from
the clutches of an
evil dragon.

You contol the actions
of a daring adventurer
finding his way
through the castle of
a dark wizard.
Who has enchanted it
with treacherous
monsters and obstacles

In the mysterious
caverns below the
castle - your odyssey
continues against the
awesome forces that
oppose your efforts to
reach the Dragons Lair

Lead on adventurer...

Your quest awaits!
