I'm not sure if this belongs on the album page, so I'm posting this here, for anyone that's interested.

These are the tracks that are arranges of Tsukasa Masuko's work from the first two Shin Megami Tensei games: 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 10, 19, 22, 27, 28, hidden portion of 30.

Added a Release Price and a Publisher.

I tried to figure out if this album was a bonus enclosure with a certain version of the game, and I think it was included with the first press of the regular edition.

Shin Megami Tensei NINE Standalone Version (Regular Edition)
真・女神転生 NINE スタンドアローン版(通常版)
Release date: 12/05/02
Retail price: 8,190 JPY
Catalog number: M90-00001
http://www.atlusnet.jp/catalog_nw/d1_det_97.html

This is the one to most likely have the soundtrack CD.
Some websites name it as Standalone Version while others have "Limited Edition" next to it. But this (Limited Edition) thing doesn't mean anything, there is no difference between Standalone Version and Limited Edition, it's the same catalog number, the same packaging. Maybe they referred to this release as Limited Edition because there were not so many copies manufactured, since they had plans to update the game into MMORPG and make a more broad release of Shin Megami Tensei Nine (Network Pack), which turned out to be canceled.

----------------------------

Shin Megami Tensei NINE Deluxe Pack
真・女神転生 NINE スタンドアローン版 (DXパック)
Release date: 12/05/02
Retail price: 13,440 JPY
Catalog number: M90-00003
http://www.atlusnet.jp/catalog_nw/d1_det_98.html

One thing for sure is that the soundtrack disc was not a part of the contents in the box.
Here are two un-boxing videos.

Shin Megami Tensei Nine (Platinum Collection)
真・女神転生 NINE プラチナコレクション
Release date: 10/23/03
Retail price: 2,940 JPY
Catalog number: Y64-00001
http://www.atlusnet.jp/catalog_nw/d1_det_112.html

This version was released almost a year later and obviously was not bundled with the soundtrack.

----------------------------

And a couple other minor notes:

1) Correction for English tracklist. In Shin Megami Tensei Sound Collection (http://vgmdb.net/album/2482) Track 31 吉祥寺 is from SMT:NINE, translated as Kichijoji.

In Shin Megami Tensei NINE PREMIUM SOUND TRAX (http://vgmdb.net/album/7116) Track 08,10 are 吉祥寺1,2 translated as Kichijouji 1,2.
So Kichijoji vs Kichijouji.

Since Japanese spelling is the same, the English translation should probably be the same too.
I'm no expert so someone else can decide which one is the correct one.

2) There's a hidden track which is part of track 30. It starts playing after 5 minutes of silence, at 8:52.

I bought the Deluxe Pack brand new a few years back, so I can tell you the CD did come included inside the box. Well mine did anyhow.

You should probably stop using those then! Phono is correct.

Usually the phrase you'll see for limited edition is genteiban (限定版).

Ok, fair enough. I guess the CD was included inside the first print of Deluxe Edition as well.
One of the customer reviews at amazon.co.jp (posted on 2002/12/7) said that their pack came without CD, so I assumed that at least it wasn't meant to be a part of inner contents.

I didn't say he was wrong. I know his translations are usually pretty accurate.
It was just a little surprising that 2 most commonly used online translators got it both wrong.
