Notes

Japanese release of the remixed US version of YMO's first album. Due to it being remixed, it sounds slightly different from the original Japanese release (ALR-6012).

Notes from Parent Album:
Only track 1 and 5 are remixes of music/sound effects from the arcade games Circus and Space Invaders respectively. The music and sound effects used from the games were not recorded from the arcade cabinets, but recreated on a synthesizer. The group did try to record music from the Circus game for track 1, but as they couldn't get a good transition to the next track, the idea was scrapped.
