The Kickstarter campaign for Project Hubbard, which was a project of creating multiple remix and arrangement albums of Rob Hubbard music along with a book, included a vinyl option for one of the albums.
The Hubbard 80 album is arranged by Rob Hubbard himself alongside Marcel Donné and features tracks arranged as if they were played in 1979 with modular synths, strings and horns.
The release is a black vinyl 2LP. It is housed in a gatefold jacket with design by Ian Flory, Thomas Finnerup and Chris Abbott.
The campaign launched on October 5, 2017 with a goal of £50,000 and ended on November 5, 2017 with more than £80,000 in funding.
Physical rewards were scheduled to ship out in April 2019, but the whole album recording was delayed. It arrived with the label in July 2022, however most album jackets were damaged on arrival. It began shipping out with fixed jackets in late September, 2022.
2LP released in 2001 by Enduro and L’Age D’Or. It comes with a 24-page booklet. The sound on this wasn’t recorded from a real C64 but from a PC emulating the SID sound chip from the C64. It contains 19 tracks from the games Turbo Outrun, BMX Kidz, Alloy Run, Kinetix, Boulder Dash, The Last Ninja, Crazy Comets, Yie Ar Kung-Fu, Bubble Bobble, Arkanoid, One Man And His Droid, Insects In Space, Boulder Dash II: Rockford’s Revenge, Starball, and Monty On The Run.
It should be noted that the songs on this release were not captured from a real Commodore 64, but from a PC emulator.
During a succesful Kickstarter campaign, for a Commodore 64 music compilation done in the style of Jean-Michel Jarre and Vangelis and created by C64Audio, backers could opt for a double vinyl option.
The release is a 2LP housed in a gatefold jacket with new artwork by Trevor Storey. It is limited to 250 numbered copies.
It was originally intended to release in February, 2016, but the entire campaign underwent some pretty hefty manufacturing delays, meaning it didn’t release until March, 2019.
