This is a Doujin arranged album of Espgaluda by one of the original composers himself plus some original works, and is available for free. My guess of the track origins is as follows, but I'm not so terribly confident of this so please correct me if it's wrong.

01, 11: "Huge Battleship Elinies" (?)
02, 06: "Floating Castle Utsurobune"
03: "Different Blood ~ Wearing Blood"
04, 08: "Secret Power"
5: "Different Blood ~ Wearing Blood", "Ravine", "Huge Battleship Elinies" and "Fort City"
07: "Tremendous Pressure" (?)

Now I can count 7 tracks, SOU1 lists himself as the only composer of this album, and he also explicitly says his compositions were 7 tracks in total on his website, I think it's nearly safe to give him credits for these tracks.

On a side note, I really hope he'll return to score another shmup game. As much as I like Namiki, the original Espagaluda soundtrack is also good.

Wow, impressive finding, Cedille. Can't thank you enough ; ). I'll give a listen later when I get home, and further guess on the origins, too.
Still, I can't get to download some of the tracks, namely, the ones with japanese titles... The character encoding makes both Firefox and IE mess up and not find the file.

I couldn't put it any better.

Oh, I only listened to the streaming and didn't notice this issue.

I uploaded the files salvaged from my Internet Temporary folder, as SOU1 said this album was free and even allowed for commercial usage (...but I doubt he has the ultimate copyright).

You'll need to put the page with the following "encoding characters" to be able to download some tracks:
Japanese (Shift_JIS) (at least this works with Firefox, no idea for IE)

I think you need to have the eastern characters package installed on your OS to do this.

Browsing VGMdb without eastern fonts would be a rather interesting experience :3

I actually did that, but with no success. And yes, I do have the eastern fonts installed, I've browsed japanese sites with no problem so far. oh well...

Thanks lot for upping it, Cedille, you saved me the hassle.

I'm sure it's been done before, but this is the first time I've ever seen an doujin artist release a previously reatil only cd for free. Very, very nice of him.
