The music in this box is (almost?) all stuff that was never released before: mostly prototype/demo/unused songs, with some original compositions and previously unreleased game music. So there's only one song from SFC ActRaiser (and it's only 7 seconds long) because that jingle was the only song that wasn't on the 1991 GMO Records soundtrack release.

I wish there was some way to purchase it other than through Beep Shop.

Interesting comments about ActRaiser with Mr. Koshiro and his interviewer I found from the liner notes.

―― では、『アクトレイザー』の時もそうだったんですか?
KOSHIRO: 『アクトレイザー』の時は、それよりもまぁ、弦楽器の音がスーパーファミコンの音源で鳴らせるってい うのが...
―― 技術的な関心からオーケストラになった、と。
KOSHIRO: そうそうそう。
ICHIKAWA: サウンドボード2で色々実験している時古代さん面白かったからなー。レベッカなんか録って、それで高 さ色々変えて鳴らしてたり(笑)。色々遊びまくってましたよ。
KOSHIRO: へぇーー。よく覚えてるな。
ICHIKAWA: いやいや、電話かかってきて聴いてよって言われましたから(笑)
―― えー、次に『アクトレイザー2』ですが...
KOSHIRO: 気持ちで言えば(CD に)入れたくないな...
―― あ、古代さんとしては何か駄目な...?
KOSHIRO: うん、なんか、駄目なオンパレード。まぁ、全然(入れても)いいんですけどね。

From whatever rough translation I saw, it seems as though Koshiro wasn't proud of his work on ActRaiser 2 for some reason and decided against releasing it on CD for years, but he nonetheless did with this early collection box. I could be wrong, though.

I'm curious, that 9th disc is only for those who have bought early, and got it with replacement disc?

So I listened to the music from the Game Gear version of The Stickman is Back and noticed most of them ended up in the Game Gear version of Batman Returns. Some tracks from that game aren't included on this compilation, such as the stage 2 theme, so I'm assuming those tracks were Kawashima's. (funny, he was credited as the sole composer yet it seems he did less than Koshiro)

Perhaps 8-bit Batman Returns was originally going to be 8-bit The Stickman is Back?

Does this really have 10 tracks of unused Famicom Draslefamily music and not a single thing that was used in the final game? (the FC version didn't get a soundtrack release as far as I know)

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I would assume it's because Koshiro doesn't have the rights to any of the stuff he did for Falcom that made it into the final games. Even here he's very careful not to mention the names of the games they were rejected from, assuming that Falcom can't concretely prove anything about what projects they were supposedly for.
