Here it is: Four months, numerous hardware and software upgrades, and a computer failure later, I'm finished with it -- the fully orchestrated tracks from Ceilick's Dead in the Desert mod.
Not all the songs that appeared in the game made it to the final cut; most of the desert songs were lost in the computer failure. Everything else survived. What you hear is all that is left.
CKFS is up again, the soundtrack is hosted there:
A big thank you to ZidaneA for sending me 'Robotic Keenery'

Long overdue, this album showcases the music of ZidaneA and Mr. M appearing in Ceilick's Commander Keen 8: Dead in the Desert project -- in their original form, before being forced to conform to the IMF music standard. After many months in and out of the studio, the Keen 8 soundtrack now stands completed.
Dedicated to the members of PCKF, and Tom Hall.
