Is this really Uematsu's first game project? I've read other places that say Genesis was his first project, released a year earlier in 1985. I think I saw an interview where Nobuo says it was his first, and SEMO says the same. But he also did the music to Genesis, where I've seen conflicting info on the release date (some say 1985, some say 1986/87)

Also, I wonder what Takashi Uno contributed here..

I interviewed him some years ago (link) and he said "There was Genesis, which was composed by someone else. I made some music for it at the later stages, but I’m not sure if it was used in the released version." If the man doesn't remember his Chrono Trigger tracks, I'm sure the 80s are a haze.

I've only seen 1987 as the release date for Genesis, where did you find 1985?

I've also love to know which tracks where Takashi Uno...

Turns out it was some random site Wikipedia was using as a source, but I corrected that some time ago.

On the SE's Nobuo Uematsu profile (link) it does say it was released in 1985. It's on sale on Project Egg (link) and there it says 1987, BUT the title screen says "Copyright by 1985, 1987 SQUARE". Maybe they developed some version in 1985, but didn't release it?

Well whatever, I'm sure your investigating skills are far above mine

At any rate, I doubt Uematsu worked on this 1985 version. (if it even exists)

I have this set and added the price listed on the obi.

I've also replaced the tracklist as there's only 3 tracks on this (and not 6 as the previous track list said). The tracks are not listed on the release, but I've been sitting and comparing the tracks on the flexi to recordings from the PC-8801 version of the game in order to get the track titles right.
