Default For those wonderful games that never came with an album

I find YouTube being a good resource for albums to games that never had an official album.

Games like Fire Power 2000. Is there any games with out official albums you listen to or wish there was something out for them?

There's already a thread somewhat about this here - https://vgmdb.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2282

Doesn't YouTube encode the audio, or do I remember wrong? In case the answer is yes, YT is rife with crappy quality stuff.

I don't get why people consider YouTube and Silvasunner the preservation of video game music when you can go to VGMrips or Zophar or SMSPower and play the files on foobar.

Some people might not know about those sites. Others might know about the sites, but get a bad conscience for downloading gamerips, yet feel ok with listening to gamerips on YouTube.

I have a feeling that "preservation" means "easy access" for many people. Having gamerips on youtube is easy access for those who don't know about gamerip sites or don't want to download music.

I think easy access is an important part of preservation, because it allows for anyone to learn more about the music (especially important for historians, interviewers, etc.). But if YouTube would be the only place where gamerips exist, I would be worried. I hope that Nintendo's vaults are full of carefully preserved music files and original notes. I also hope that unofficial gamerips continue to have a home in the sites you mentioned.
