There might possibly be a mention of a name in the booklet for the Japanese release - this page here. It's not specifically mentioned in the SOTN booklet either for some reason, like here, only a lyricist credit is given. Though the version on the SOTN soundtrack is in Japanese and this one in English, so it probably isn't the same vocalist anyway, even if the voices sound very similar.

The original singer for the Japanese version is Hekiru Shiina, which I've just added to KICA-7760.

That booklet page doesn't mention a vocalist. Only Yamane's name is shown.

She's credited in this Wikipedia JP page as the vocalist. She's the seiyuu for the fairy in SOTN: 悪魔城ドラキュラX 月下の夜想曲(妖精、半妖精). This listing (entry #154) directly ties her to KICA-7760.

Thanks, that's interesting to know. I always wondered why no credit was given in the booklet...

Ichihashi apparently commented on tracks 25~27, and 26~27 sound a lot like his other songs on this album, so I personally mark him down for those two at least. 25 sounds more like an unreleased CnR track and the comment also seems to hint at that (edit: oh it is, it's on the regular ADX soundtrack, whoops), so I dunno what to do except consider that as KKC.

"Slash" and "Op.13" have been named correctly on this album, correct?

I'd love some help just trying to understand which games all this Castlevania music really comes from.

So we have this album, and http://vgmdb.net/album/2938. This album seems to be representing something called "Akumajo Dracula X: Rondo of Blood". The other one is supposedly representing the same thing. But I see discussions about missing tracks, redbook audio, PC Engine sound... etc.

Then there's the multiple "Rondo" games that seem to exist. And the multiple "Dracula X" games as well. For multiple platforms. There's this
http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/turb...ta/589264.html
and this
http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/snes/data/563534.html.

Do both CDs represent the very same "Rondo of Blood", which is apparently for the PC engine or whatever?

This is probably very easy but I'm tired. And I don't want to come back to this and try to sort through release difference havoc haha. Obviously I've never played Rondo of Blood or Chi no Rondo or whatever it's called so I really have no frame of reference for what this is supposed to be.

@hellacia:

KICA 7622-23 is a 1993 original soundtrack 2 disc set. the first disc is the soundtrack for the 1993 DUO game "Akumajo Dracula X Chi no Rondo", the second for the 1994 megadrive game "Vampire Killer" (aka Castlevania Bloodlines/The New Generation).

**question: how can a 1993 soundtrack have the music for a 1994 game? Maybe the release date of the OST is incorrect?**

LC1609-10 is the original soundtrack for the PSP game "Akumajo Dracula X Chronicle" - it contains therefore the original music from the 1993 DUO game (included several tracks that weren't collected in the previous OST, basically all the non-redbook generated audio), and the 2007 arrangements used in the polygonal PSP exclusive version of Chi no Rondo. It also has some extra tunes from the PSP version of SotN.

Rondo of Blood was released on PCE DUO in 1993 and again in a PSP remake in 2007. So it was given two soundtrack releases.

the other game you are linking from gamefaqs is not Rondo of Blood. It's a 1995 SNES game called Dracula XX and it was never given a soundtrack release (although a couple of tracks are present on this cd: http://vgmdb.net/album/5034).

It is, however, a heavily modified port. Also, many of the same compositions are carried over from the DUO version, but they are obviously arranged for the SNES. There are also a few new compositions.

Flipped some covers to better represent their original positions on the actual album.

So, why did they choose to rotate the front/back covers here? The format is almost square anyway, so it's not like there's more room for anything by doing this. I'm a bit puzzled. Doesn't look very look when all the other Castlevania soundtracks are straight.

The Nocturne in the Japanese release is the English version, right? The lyric credit doesn't really make much sense if so.

The Japanese release uses the English "Nocturne" because the Japanese version of the song is already on the SotN soundtrack.

Konami didn't have the rights to publish the original Nocturne in the West back then, so it's not that unreasonable to assume they may have rerecorded it for The Dracula X Chronicles.

EDIT: Though yeah, they could've easily included the rerecording in SOTN OST then.

Not super familiar with the SotN score (only played the game once) but from checking my copy of this album with what's on Youtube, it seems like it's the same English recording as in the original game.

The SotN soundtrack uses the Japanese version, since that's all that existed (or all that was released) when that soundtrack was produced. The English version didn't exist (or wasn't released) until DXC, which is why it's included here. If YouTube only has the Englsih version grouped with the rest of SotN, it's because someone did like I've done in iTunes and swapped in the English version out of personal preference. Check the XA files on a PS1 SotN disc; there's no English Nocturne file present, only a Japanese one. The western version of the original SotN didn't even have a place to put the song, as that part of the game was removed in the west and didn't appear until DXC.

I knew about all that. I was just making sure, since the alleged "legal issues" with the digital SotN OST release make the description a bit ambiguous.

I see. I must've misunderstood what GeneralFailer meant by "rerecorded." I thought he meant it was in the English PS1 version and was wondering if the one here was a new recording. I'll plead ignorance on that one. As I said I only played SotN once and it didn't leave a great impression on me.
