What Carl said. Screw wikipedia. If there were a legit, NTT-pressed release of a Super Mario RPG arranged album, even if they only made 50 copies or something stupid like that, we would've known about it for at least a decade. I'm positive such a thing does *not* exist.

Yeah, I guess it's more likely that this is not an official release. I searched for quite awhile but couldn't find much more about the album other then what I posted here, and none of it is really a confirmation of its existence. Oh, well, doujin or not, it's still a pretty good listen.

I've never heard of such a thing either, and unless it was a mini-cd included with a guidebook, ala Live A Live, I think we would have known about it by now.

That info was added to Wiki by the user TTN on September 30 2008. It looks like he's a frequent editor. If you search around, there are a few places that have it up for download, so I'm thinking he got the information from there. Perhaps it's time to get a wiki account.

Ok, I now have an account, and I'm calling for removal of the album from the entry.

I remember when that album was out, and everyone was gaga over Ragnarok Online. This was back in the year 2 BT (Before Touhou).

The vinyl of Nobunaga's Ambition: Sengoku Gunyuuden is on YJA right now:

http://page8.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/h136780674

The photos are attached to this post.

The catalog number is clearly visible KCS-001. Unfortunately, there is no information about the release date.

If the information regarding http://vgmdb.net/album/11252 is correct, it could very well be April 20, 1989.

KCS-002 is http://vgmdb.net/album/924 by the way, but again no release date.
It also seems strange to me that these vinyls were supposedly included with the games.

GML / GameMusicLibrary was doujin circle active around the turn of the century. They did mostly visual novel music arrangements. I've been collecting their albums, so expect to see them in the database soon~

Now that needs a quote for hilarity's sake. I LOL'ed.

And nice find on that vinyl, Teioh, probably sounds awesome.

I think all the KCS albums are CDs. There's a copy up on Otokichi Premium, listed as a CD.

Oh, actually you're right, the contents picture of KCS-003 clearly shows that.
Some strange packaging. I never imagined these would be CD-sized, but with that in mind it does look like some other promo cds.

Found a Phantasy Star Universe CD enclosed in some artbook, on YJA.It doesn't seem to be in the database yet, so if anyone wants to try and find out more about it and add it, feel free to. Otherwise I'll get to it eventually.

This album was submitted by ava a few minutes ago with good photos of the case. Strangely, the catalogue number it's actually SRCD-4118, not SRCD-4418 as listed in Purgatorium website.

The last Dragon Quest VHS (WPVL-8111) in Sugimania website isn't catalogued yet in database, but it's really difficult to find a good scan of the front cover. Also, I found the LD version (WPLL-8111) in this old auction, but the photos were missing. This version seems even more rare.

From the description on the obi, the CD itself is the game, kind of like those adventure books.

Masumi Ito is the composer/performer for the last track.
So was a decision ever made about this CD?

The KCS albums catalogue numbers are assigned chronologically and there is that gap between 019 and 022 which corresponds to a gap between 2-25-93 and 4-25-93. This (game cd's?) release date(3-25-93 according to any Google search) fits between these dates perfectly.

Then there's KECH-1038.
http://music.yahoo.co.jp/record/dtl/LAA018185/

Doesn't seem to be a video game related at all. The release date is also 3-25-93. Just some guy (http://www.audiocybernetics.com/) in the music industry who seems to have had a Koei release an album for him, KECH-1038. Huh.

Soooooo......

There is a good chance that KCS 020 and 021 either don't exist or they do but they're something else......or maybe they are out of order chronologically.......

Hmmmm......

Maybe somebody can help me with this one. "GANTZ the Musix サウンドトラック - The Music from the Game". I got this from SS years ago but I can't find anything about it, anywhere. It contains the music from the Gantz game for PS2, and even has a cover. I would think this is just a rip but
A) Seems like a couple of tracks are looped unlike in the game (this is from memory).
B) I faintly remember reading in a forum this album was coming out.

Any ideas?


EDIT: this one definitely was a game rip. I checked and the speed was wrong (as in badly ripped).
Composer is Hiroshi Tanabe btw.

I tryed to add that album some months ago.. but i failed seing i have no reliable source talking about this album.

Covers is definitely not a scan.. so either it was fan-made, or it was a digital release only.

怒首領蜂大往生 スコアトライアル 参加賞サウンドトラック
(DoDonPachi Daioujou Score Trial Participation Bonus CD)

The very first soundtrack release of DoDonPachi Daioujou was actually a CD-R and offered as a promotional items for the score competition on the game magazine. Initially the top 50 players were supposed to get this album, but eventually all the participants received it, hence why 'Participation Bonus'. This page has the scan and I wish I could have contacted this person. We can come across another evidence by courtesy of google, but I think we shouldn't refer it here

Some minor info here and here (about the trial)

Also I, ahem, found this one in Winny/Share long ago with tracklists and all so we have enough info to add it I guess.

More quite rare albums!

**Madou Monogatari Ongakukan
Anyone that can understand/read Japanese could make the entry.
I am not sure but it seems to have a link with the Discstation Magazine (issue 2) ?

Seems to be incredibly rare too.


**PSYCHIX Re-mix ALBUM
more infos here
Seems like a re-mix or arrangement album for Psychic Detective series.
