Music Master III Demo - 1986 Jolly Roger

A quick (but obscure) question for anyone who's familiar with what I thought was a popular music demo, widely distributed back in the day:

 

http://gury.atari8.info/demos/877.php

 

https://demozoo.org/productions/111645/

 

I can remember being amazed by this at the time, wondering who these geniuses were and how they'd managed to "break-in" to all of the games and steal the music. I don't remember where my copy came from, but I always presumed that if I had it, then the rest of the Atari community must have it too and hold it in similar esteem. Seemingly not. It's not on YouTube and a quick Google has thrown up few references.

 

Anyway, finally to my point. I'd like to upload a play-through of the tunes to YouTube, but the only copies of this demo I can find appear to be hacks, with "YAPMAN SOFTWARE" credited in place of Jolly Roger, Inc. My memory may be playing tricks, but this looks like the work of someone armed with a sector editor - however, it's the only version I can find! I'd like to upload the original (which I think is credited to JOLLY ROGER INC. at the bottom, not sure about the other Yapman text above) so, does anyone have an original copy of Music Master III without the Yapman graffitti that they can share?

 

I said it was obscure :-) Thanks for any help...

Its also incredibly picky about memory (64K) and if you choose W or X then other tunes start to not play unless you choose them numerous times.

 

Music Master 4 is nicer tho :)

 

Could be the raw keys setting, seems better with the full scan

Hmmm strange,

 

with Atari 800 Win it works fine in 1088k mode, also there is no problem with keypresses - even W and X worked right with the first keypress. Created a 90k disk of these demos by packing the files and also added a Basic off + Reset=reboot routine. The only file that does not reboot (and still requires the Start key to be pressed to work!) is the "Train Music" demo. While all demos fit on a 90k disk now, you have to wait some seconds for depacking...
