Information mostly comes from Discogs:

http://www.discogs.com/Various-The-B...release/985939

It is also found in SynSONIQ's catalog, but I'm not sure if it's a second printing.

Some additional information can be found here:
* http://www.amigareport.com/ar308/news5.html
* http://uk.aminet.net/docs/anno/thebest3.txt

I've added the sales price based on this information and corrected the release classification: these are the exact recordings of the music from the previously released actual scene demos, no original works

EDIT: I'm not sure why my edit was partly rejected...
Original Soundtrack == Music that accompanies some audio, visual, or printed work --> this is the case, the music is taken directly from scene demos
Original Work == Music that has no connection to any of VGMdb's categories --> this is NOT the case, the music is connected to Demo Scene releases

Most of the tracks (if not all) are just music (mods), and were not used as demos.
For example "Compulsion to Obey by Lizardking/Razor1911" was music created for the Assembly 1994 4 channel's music competition.

I am not even sure if we treat music for demos (something you can't play) as "soundtrack".

Maybe I have overestimated the number of tracks that were used in demos... A quick check at BitFellas:BitJam shows that at least 6 tracks were used in regular demos, and some others in music disks or disk magazines.

To play or not to play shouldn't make a difference for the definition of soundtrack, I would think. Especially since soundtrack is normally applied to movies too.

Re-reading the help text on the submission form, I think that actually both "Original Work" and "Original Soundtrack" should be selected, since there is at least one track of either kind.
Anyway, I can also live with "Original Work" as release type. I just thought my edit was kind of obvious, but it turns out it isn't.
