Rare oldies!

Here's something we don't do as often anymore with the never ending influx of new VGM releases...an old (and rare) album release.

Falcom Neo Classic From Studios In London City
This album, from 1992, features famous Falcom selections performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and arranged by Takayuki Hattori.

Game Music Concert -The Best Selection-
The famous "Game Music Concert" series.  This album, from 1991, features a selection of VGM performed by the Tokyo City Philharmonic Orchestra.

Super Metroid "Sound In Action"
This rare gem from 1994 features music from "Metroid" and "Super Metroid", as well as a few arranged tracks by Yoshiyuki Ito and Masumi Ito.

I bought Falcom Neo Classic last year along with Special Box '92 (which possesses Disc 2, some of the best Falcom/Legend of Heroes arranges yet) for a good deal. I failed in contributing Neo Classic but I can supply Special Box '92 if you want. If so, drop me a message.

For the record, there was never a published Street Fighter soundtrack for the SFC/SNES games.

I think he meant Street Fighter II really, basically it's the same music anyway.........

Great releases, your best this year!

"Not so good as Sorcerian Symphony but still fantastic:)!"

But Sorcerian Symphony is probably the best album ever ;)

Great release.

Hi, Godai, great release! :)

I think there's a problem with Falcom Neo Classic, though: track 203, "From the Petrified Village", skips a bit in the last minute. I wonder if anyone else noticed it.

I just love Falcom music. And I was pleasantly surprised to find out Jun Irie worked on this album. Very reminiscent of the Nazo┬▓ work in older Konami albums. :D

Neat-o! Much obliged, as usual!

..but my ISP is going to be furious with me! I'm well above my monthly limit, and have been since the first week!

"But Sorcerian Symphony is probably the best album ever" - You can say it again!:D

Great release, but it would be better to put the composer or arranger in the artist tag rather than a whole orchestra.

Parn > Yep, I noticed that too, from 3'53" until the end there are blanks. :-/

Anyway, that's a great release. Thanks very much Godai ! :)

According to Kibbas, those "skips" are on the original CD...so don't blame us!

Nice game music concert! I suggest all sets of Orchestral Game Concert Vol. 1/5 will be released in the future!

Overall, great classic stuff!

Rama, do you have any idea how difficult it is to come across the OGC albums?? The actual releases, I mean, not the oft-flawed bootleg copies.

Although I agree it would be nice. ;)

I've been looking for that Metroid soundtrack forever! I do have one question though, are the sound effects sprinkled through some of the songs there on the original cd too? I know how the Alarm is actually part of the escape song, but some of them have jumping, getting hit, or door opening sound effects. Also, the recordings seem to cut off the very beginning of the songs. I really don't have a problem with it, it just makes me wonder. All of that pertains to the original Metroid portion of the soundtrack.
