Release Date:04/28/2017;Notes:For Data Disc's tenth release in partnership with SEGA of Japan, they are excited to offer two arcade classics - Galaxy Force II (1988) and Thunder Blade (1987) - together for the first time ever on vinyl. Composed by Koichi Namiki, Katsuhiro Hayashi and Tohru Nakabayashi, both soundtracks adopted an ambitious funk and fusion style, simulating an impressive range of real world instrumentation (think synthesizers, drums, slap bass and cowbells), which for it's time and hardware limitations, is nothing short of astonishing. And yes, there's even a coded slap bass solo._x000D_ _x000D_ These two brief, but remarkable soundtracks each accommodate a single side of an LP, but work together seamlessly. Galaxy Force II includes a bonus arranged version of it's leading track, Beyond the Galaxy, produced by Hiroshi "Hiro" Kawaguchi (composer of OutRun, Space Harrier) and features a full studio band, complete with brass section and a keyboard solo by Hiro himself. In addition, the Thunder Blade side includes three unused tracks.;Special Attributes:COLORED VINYL
