I added the tracklist from the site, I'm sure it's inaccurate but it's all we have right now. When someone gets the cd or scans are uploaded, we can update it.

Anyone knows "SEGA Puzzle FP" and "SEGA Puzzle BX"?
Official website of WaveMaster (http://www.wave-master.com/ent/details/wm/wm0681-3/) shows the katakana title "セガ パズル FP" (and BX too, of course), but I don't know any game with this title.

Based on the track titles, they look like they're Flash Point and Bloxeed: http://vgmdb.net/album/632.

I can't tell you why they're referred to with code names like that, though. The Ebten store page for the album says they they're temporary titles, but why they didn't use the real names I don't know.

Wrestle War = Anupon (Who?)
Bay Route = ???
Golden Axe = Y. "Dolphin" Takada, Tohru Nakabayashi
SEGA Puzzle FP (Flash Point) = Y.T. (Most likely Y. "Dolphin" Takada)

Cyber Police ESWAT = Y. "Dolphin" Takada, Takayuki Nakamura
SEGA Puzzle BX (Bloxeed) = Y. "Dolphin" Takada
M.V.P. = ???
Ryu Kyu = Hiroto Saitoh (assuming this is Solitaire Poker)

Aurail = Shinichi Sakamoto
Cotton = Kenichi Hirata


Now this is just from quick Mobygames/VGMdb search. We need those scans before we can confirm, and that's even if they include composer info.

Golden Axe has been confirmed to be composed by Nakabayashi and Takada, so I've added it to the notes, alongside Yasuhiro Kawakami doing ESWAT (confirmed by Okunari).

Bay Route's end credits are specifically for "sound"; we don't know how many of the three* actually composed, so we shouldn't be saying they all did. In particular, there's a decent chance Shinichi Seya didn't, because most of the time he was just a sound programmer.

*: Assuming Vial Music is a separate entity from Takemori and Seya and not just a company header for the two. I've never seen the credit in any other game so it's p. mysterious.

Since this wasn't scored by Sega's sound team, I kind of suspect that Okunari doesn't necessarily know the composers for sure and is just listing the staff roll credits. I'm bringing this up specifically for this game because the in-game credit for these three is "sound," not "music" specifically.

This is probably the one everyone's interested in. Okunari only names Takada: "the music was the debut of Y.T." This lines up with Nakabayashi's liner notes in the Golden Axe compilation album where he only talks about programming and sound effects and doesn't actually mention writing any music; looks like this score was in fact all Takada.

These are correct, though weirdly Takada doesn't mention Nakabayashi at all in the liner notes of the original soundtrack for these two. He does only explicitly state that he wrote music for Flash Point, though.

Yeah.

I haven't been able to verify the game's credits for myself, but there's allegedly a Hiromitsu Watanabe who composed Power Eleven with Sakamoto so that's probably him.

EDIT: Can verify a Hiromitsu Watanabe worked with Sakamoto in Jikuu Senki Mu: http://www14.atwiki.jp/gball/pages/410.html

Man, that's great news. I've been wondering about that game for a very long time, as I'm sure a lot of people have.

As always, thanks for your great skills at digging up info.

Wow that's a big revelation there! Tohru Nakabayashi has been credited (wrongly it seems) for composing the music to Golden Axe for a such a long time that many, myself included, had stopped questioning it.

Nice to see that the situation with Golden Axe has finally been cleared up. The entire soundtrack is quite similar and doesn't sound like Nakabayashi's style, so it makes sense Takada was the composer (the music sounds like his style).

Hmm... the liner notes (booklet page 4) of Formula -G.S.M. SEGA 5- mentions MVP in a little note about SZK. I can't read much Japanese, but it seems he does have something to do with it, yet I don't see SZK being mentioned in the liner notes of this release, so I'm confused (could it be that SZK and Nakabayashi composed the music together?). Nakabayashi definitely seems to be involved since the credit SFX was reused from Golden Axe.

To be honest, I highly doubt we'll ever find this out, though someone here could ask Okunari since he seems to know a lot about Sega's music in the 80s/90s. He may not respond though.

Ah, thanks for finding that. It says she(!) worked on arcade MVP and Genesis Gain Ground, but isn't specific about her role in either.

Okunari unequivocally attributes the music to Nakabayashi in the liner notes here.
