According to this interview with Ohnogi, this album sold over 10 million copies at the time of release - amazing!!

罰帝: やはりG.M.O.は細野さんの 「ビデオゲームミュージック」 の影響から生まれたものなん ですか?

大野: 10万枚以上売れたからね。 アルファは新しいことを ドンドンやる会社だったので、 ゲームミュージックも新しい ジャンルとして考えられる と思ったのだろうね。

According to the notes:
Quote:
Arranged by:
Haruomi Hosono (1~10)
which is everything. So, is it an original soundtrack, or an arrangement? We have it classified as both.

Have to say I'm impressed by how good the cover looks. People who designed it probably had no idea that it still would look stylishly cool 30 years later.

Actually, in reality it was a bit less impressive number: it sold 100,000 = 10万. Also, link is now 404. Also, domain name seems to have been converted to a spam site. Yes, I know it's from 2009.

I'm also confused. Is this an arranged album with no fully original tracks?

I listened to some clips on YouTube and it sounds like some tracks start out as the original version, but then morph into an arranged version? Would that be the reason why this is classified both as original and arrangement?
