Default Need some help regarding Strider Soundtrack Releases

I'm kind of confused here. I've been looking at the various Strider releases and can't quite tell if any of them have what I'm looking for. I'm taking it that the music from the NES version of Strider has not been released on disc?

If not, I'm still kind of interested in Strider 2. I'd love to have some more Setsuo Yamamoto in my collection. Mega Man X and Rival Schools are getting lonely.

If you mean the exact NES music: no.
If you mean remixes/arrangements: well, sorta.

The Strider Hiryu Sound Chronicle's third disc supposedly contains two arrangements: Kazakh City (which didn't sound much like the first NES stage to me) and Egypt (which seems to be the 'Phantom Train' from the Egypt stage). That third disc is a reprint of the Strider Digital Soundtrack, but since you're also interested in Strider 2, you might as well track down that Sound Chronicle seeing as the second disc is essentially Strider 2's first disc without the vocal track.

However, I'd like to know how Sound Chronicle's first disc compares to Strider 2's second disc, seeing as the track times are different and Sound Chronicle has two extra tracks.

On another note, there's allegedly this tape that exists, which inspired (or is based off of?) the NES Strider. But besides a defunct blog where the images came from, it seems to be nonexistent. I'd be willing to put up some money just to get high quality scans.

Yeah, this is what was really leading me astray. You'd think these be carbon copies, but the track times don't line up. Curious.
