I wonder why some people are saying that the Soundtrack is Out-of-Print? You can order two of the Ocarina of Time Albums still at Play-Asia.com for a fairly cheap price (and it looks like there're not an reprint too).

I just ordered my copies, hope it helps some people who are still searching for it.

Does anyone know about this version? It has the same catalog number but it looks different.

Thanks for pointing it out, I added it and I'll try to whip up a translation tomorrow since it differs slightly from the included English tracklist. And if someone could translate the staff credits found on the tray scan that would be great.

A few notes, though: Just now, I realized how Ganondorf's Japanese name ガノンドロフ does not even contain a ル/ru but a ロ/ro instead, hence making "Ganondorf" an impossible romanization. This mirrors the situation with Andruf/"Andorf"/Andross. Several ways to write the name would be Ganondorofu, Ganondorof, Ganondrofu and Ganondrof, of which the last seems to be the most reasonable choice (one can of course use "lo", too, but it sounds ridiculous).
On the Star Fox 64 forum you can see that I solved the Andruf problem using what ultimately turned out to be simple logic. This finding, fortunately, does not impair that one in any way. As for Ganon vs Gannon...

ガノンドロフ = ga-no-n-do-r(o)-f; the o is taken from ド, not ロ, so it's dorf, not drof. The second o is near silent. I suppose that "Ganon" does rhyme with "cannon" (キャノン), but Ganon is said quicker, so the first n sound isn't stressed that much, so it actually rhymes with "canon" and the fact that it's Ganon today, I believe, makes it perfect for all time.

Porky from the Mother series is another good example of this, as his name (ポーキー) was always spelt the same yet he was always meant to be Porky despite being called Pokey in Mother 2. This is further evidence that I prefer Ganon (another official conversion in both the US and Japan) over Gannon every day of the week.

According to these sites, Yoshiko was an arranger.

Since the game credits don't list Yoshiko either, I think this is just an error that got out of hand. Go ahead and terminate it.

Well, I've finally deleted this profile. I couldn't find any game that Yoshiko Kawamoto is credited even in MobyGames.

Wow. None of the covers have the romanized title of "Ocarina of Time", only "The Legend of Zelda Original Sound Track" is used. Kind of a big flaw.

Yeah, in general, the presentation is really bad. Most notably, this score should've been spread over three or four discs - not shoehorned onto one.

Also, while I assume they omitted the choir portion of "Fire Temple" due to disc space and not wanting to offend folks, "Dinosaur Boss Battle" missing its entire chorus section is a huge letdown - almost completely ruins the song.

Pony Canyon did horrible job with this release.

Sorry to bump an old thread. I have a question, though. Since this is a Japanese soundtrack, where do the English track titles come from? (Not the "English (literal translation)" ones, since that's fairly obvious.)

Seanne above mentioned something about an "included English tracklist." Did this album have a special insert with English track titles?

In short, I'm wondering if the track titles on the VGMDB page for this OST are the official English titles or merely fan conjecture--and the English literally translated the closest we come to official titles in English?

(Side note: I know there's an American version of this OST, but it's a lot shorter and missing approximately 2/3 the tracks of this one.)

The text in parentheses are the Japanese titles.

that "blabla... discontinued ...blabla" sentence idiocy should be removed from the notes
same with http://vgmdb.net/album/700 notes

it's not discontinued, it's just the price maintained till the date printed near release date wrongly thought as oop (till some years ago)
