???The Complete Works of Rob Hubbard
By Professor Ugha Sid
???Are you a Rob Hubbard fan? Have you ever dreamt of having a chance to
listen to as many of his musics as possible? Are you tired of hunting for them
one by one? If one or more answers was yes, have a look at http://www.robhubbard.co.uk/
???The site is called The Complete Works of Rob Hubbard.
???The word complete applies to his works on the C=64, other systems are not
included. The site has got a sober design in the Breadbox colours (similar to
ours!). The graphics are well chosen.
???The most important part – the music – doesn't miss of course. You
can view the list of the tunes ordered by name, publisher, year or ZZap!
64 rating. You can download the whole game for your C=64 or a .sid for SidPlay.
To each tune there's an interesting additional text and of course some
pictures. I miss (or haven't found) some d/l-all-in-one option, and that quite
a lot because there are 72 tunes by Rob. You can substitute this by dowloading
the (yet?) four offered music demos for your C=64. They're just a small sample
of the many Rob Hubbard demos done on the machine.
???The music is accompanied by a brief but nicely done profile and an
exclusive interview. The interview is the weakest part of the site – IMHO the
maintainer just wasted a chance to do a good interview with the master himself.
Without half of the questions the interview would be better, I think. Also
there's only one answer that's actually longer than the question, so we can
learn more about the interviewer than about Rob Hubbard.

COMMENT BY CREAMD: I've checked the site, it seems it has changed meanwile, so it's possible it will be updated from time to time. Actually it contains more interviews than one. And by the way, it's a retro site, stay away from that if you don't want to die of nostalgia.
