Here's another one of those almost 1:1 bootlegs. I've never heard of Alion Records, but some light googling came up with some hearsay about bootlegs, so I went with that classification. AFAIK the internal contents (liner notes, that nifty sheet music) are exactly the same as the Konami release. I don't actually own this release or the original, so I can't verify everything 100%.

EDIT: Scans added. Flash uploader is still wonky for me (Flash 10, Firefox), so "Back" got uploaded twice. I have no idea how the booklet pages should be ordered (they're not numbered, and neither are my source scans), so if someone familiar with the album could arrange them properly, that would be great. Secret Squirrel, I'm not terribly sure the Front image you provided matches this album. The front scan I added has the catalog number under the sun at the bottom/right of the gravestone.

It looks like the Booklet Back was showing in the case instead of the front in the scan I uploaded.

I've heard of Alion records, and they are definitely bootleg. Sometimes they cause confusion though, since the ALCA catalog stem is also used by Alfa Records.

I've always had someone check VGMdb before I buy an album. If the serials don't match, I won't buy it. I think I've seen an Albion before of Viewtiful Joe. Almost bought that one as it was a US release and I didn't think it was pirated (but there was no serial for it on the site).
