Lost Level: Fighting Games

Episode 11: Fighting Games was originally supposed to be released on January 12, 2011, but due to technical difficulties, it was never released.  There were problems with the recording device and all of the audio cut out at various times throughout the episode.  Episode 11 then became known as "The Lost Level."  See here:

However, as part of their 30th episode celebration, The Legacy Music Hour is releasing The Lost Level.  All of the the music has been replaced with clean, stereo tracks, and so now, the only problem left with the episode is the talking which skips out a lot, making it hard to understand what is being said.  But, at least the music sounds good.  The following is the original description for this episode:

Rob and Brent burn the midnight oil and explore fighting games in this extended edition of The Legacy Music Hour.  They also introduce a new segment called "Mame That Chune."  Full track listing below.
