Could this be a reprint of the Konami Shooting Collection?

But didn't that have non-arcade soundtracks on it also, and this seems to be just arcade shooting?

The description on CD Japan says it contains music from 22 arcade games, including the Parodius series. So, it's different from the other release.

Eh, it's really all about the mixing. Though I have Konami Shooting Collection, the quality is inferior to each games original OST's in my opinion. Don't really expect anything different but keep us posted lol

I added the track list and the cover as they appear on the page that IkariDC linked above.

It looks like there's also a bonus Music From Original Porodius (CD) 「ミュージック フロム オリジナル・パロディウス(CD)」 that's included as an early-purchase bonus.

Should that have its own separate entry?

From what I can tell, this is all arcade games, omitting any home ports or original titles. Most of these games were already featured on either the Gradius Ultimate Collection or Konami Shooting Collection box sets, but this appears to be the first-ever reissue of the Parodius OSTs, as well as Otomedius.

Strange thing is, Jikkyou Oshaberi Parodius appears to be missing for some reason. Could it be rights issues due to the song covers on the original?

Also, the bonus CD appears to be the soundtrack to the first Parodius game released on the MSX. This is also the first time this soundtrack has been reissued by Konami as well. It was also included on the 2005 Legend of Game Music Premium Box from Scitron, however.

Honestly wish they'd reprint the Konami Shooting Collection box too, but still nice to see Konami finally paying attention to their shmup titles again.

Looks like there's nothing new here at all then. Probably a nice way to save money if you don't have any of these yet or don't feel like tracking down all the albums on their own, but you'd be missing a bunch of bonus and arrange tracks I think.
