I've completed the Japanese tracklist based on the scans we have for this album. I'm surprised the list we had in the database had a few bits of Engrish compared to the perfectly spelled list on the scans.

I also adjusted a few titles on the English tracklist based on direct translations.

Is there a consensus between you frequent editors on how to read things like 1st, 2st, 3st in a tracklist? I think some people consider it to be an Engrish-ized version of first, second, third, etc., but I've always read it as an abbreviation for "stage" (as in 1stage BGM, 2stage BGM, 3stage BGM, etc.).

On Booklet 4, in the second Miki section, "Ending BGM" is referenced, so I believe Return in Glory (End Credit) is Miki's. Ada just asks one question, and all Tappy seems to do is mumble (もぐもぐ = mumbling).

I leave the rest to someone more qualified.

On Aki Hata's blog she states that she composed 2 themes, and then something in brackets. "2曲作曲(後ほど曲名確認します)"

Strange that she wasn't credited in the game. Can anyone make sense of this?

Interesting. The game came out during her time at Konami, so it's possible. It wouldn't be the first time someone's gone uncredited in a game.

I think the stuff in the parentheses says something like "I'll check the titles later."

Ah, that's what I figured. I wonder how long ago that was posted. Maybe she forgot about it. Perhaps someone can try contacting her for clarification/as a reminder.

Is it safe to add a profile for Hidehiro Funauchi? He's on this wiki:
http://www36.atwiki.jp/gmcomposer/pages/42.html

Edit: I also found a site with all credits from the Contra series. Might be useful to some.. http://www.ne.jp/asahi/hzk/kommander/constaff.html

Go ahead. He is part of this album and two others after all.
http://vgmdb.net/album/17063
http://vgmdb.net/album/552

My only criticism for adding a page used to be that this was the same person as Jun Funahashi, but that is no longer the case.

I removed Kyohei Sada as a composer for the NES version of Contra since, according to this interview, Maezawa did it by himself.

It would be cool to know which ones. Shall we include her among composers, although uncredited?
