YouTube playlist: 300 Amiga demos
'rtiainen' has published a playlist on his YouTube channel that contains Amiga demo scene productions especially from groups that were not so famous or well known in the community. Most of these demos were released between 1988 and 1992, but there are also some earlier and also later releases included. Most of these demos use a standard Amiga 500 with ECS chipset, but some later ones were recorded with an Amiga 1200 and AGA chipset. (dr)
