Recently checking out some more SEGA sound tracks by Wave Master, JP... It's too bad that they don't have more of their Catalog CD and DVD releases available as digital audio. I would be interested to buy the high quality versions and not have to attempt to navigate a japanese only website just to buy some import for it's music.

I am somewhat surprised in general that more Record companies in general don't have classic back-catalog type niche music all that available for download purchases.

for some reason I have always been drawn to arie's theme (sp?) in final fantasy vii, could just have been for the moment it happened so heavily in the game…

Bumping this shiz for some killer tunes:

Sparkster (Genesis version) Battle For Gedo

Chrono Trigger - Secret of the Forest

Hybrid Front - Intro

And this gem from a rare game with an absolutely kick ass soundtrack

Rolling Thunder 3 - 5 Black Vol 5

This is one of my favourites:

I think it's quite satisfying to listen to that on repeat for half an hour. :P

I like Tetris Theme B a lot too, especially this cover!

And as for orchestral works, I think they have already been mentioned, but the Uncharted series and Kingdom Hearts have great scores.

Never played the game, but this soundtrack is without a doubt the best i have heard. Needless to say, i'm a big fan of Magnus Birgersson/Solar Fields.

I'm surprised to see no one mentioned one of the best game scores in history:

Monkey Island I & II are some of the best games also, IMO.

+1 and my most intense childhood music/game experience! :D burned forever into my brain, especially @08:31 - desert rocks and @28:24 - concerto for laser & enemies

Yesterday i found the Chris Huelsbeck kickstarter campaign. i want the biographical score book!

I also love the Secret of Evermore OST:

Edit: How could i forget Command & Conquer 1. Especially the Chorus from Act on Instinct (first Track) gave me some wonderful moments

Yeah, the Ecco soundtrack is phenomenal. It's like a new age rompler tour de force, but done right.

I actually have that soundtrack on a CD, a real one with liner notes and photos and quotes from Spencer Nielsen and everything. I never saw it for sale anywhere but I was out in L.A. doing some session work and playing on some stuff back in like summer '97 and I was in a studio and saw it in the control room with a bunch of other CDs.

I told the engineer on the session, "Where'd you get that? That's an awesome soundtrack! I didn't even know it was on CD!"

The engineer was like, "I don't know. Someone brought it by and left it. I never even listened to it - you can have it."

Took me like 3 seconds to throw it in my bag. It's a cool CD, though.

What was cool back then though was that the Sega CD used to use the CD format for streaming the music - not really for the game. The game was loaded into memory and that was it. So a lot of times, with some of the Sega Games, if you liked the soundtrack, you could pop the CD in your regular computer CD and rip the audio soundtrack. I'm not sure if you could do that with Ecco though, although it would make sense that you could - but I did do that with a lot of their other stuff I liked, like Sol Feace. Robo Aleste also had a cool soundtrack that I remember ripping.

But it is nice, for a change to have the actual soundtrack on a real CD release. That was still virgin territory for games soundtracks - they weren't really rushing to release them on CD at the time.

I have been making a lot of covers of some of my favorite VGM lately on my YouTube channel:

Here's my latest cover:

Also, I recently contributed some bass in a cover of some Ecco Jr. music:

The main artist in that last video is "Soundole VGM Covers" who is a fantastic EWI player. Here's some other Ecco the Dolphin tunes that he's covered with his EWI:
