List of video game soundtracks released on vinyl

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The practice of releasing video game soundtracks on vinyl records began in the 1980s, fell out of favor in the 1990s and 2000s as vinyl records were replaced by other storage media, and experienced a resurgence of interest in the 2010s due in part to a vinyl revival.[1] Vinyl recordings of video game music find their origins in the 1970s with albums such as Yellow Magic Orchestra's self-titled 1978 release sampling electronic music from the games Circus, Space Invaders, and Gun Fight. The practice experienced its "golden age" in the 1980s with hundreds of releases including Buckner & Garcia's Pac-Man Fever, Namco's Video Game Graffiti, and Koichi Sugiyama's orchestral covers of the Dragon Quest series. The 1990s saw many fewer commercial releases and a shift to promo releases with increasing use of video game samples in rap[2] and hip hop.[3]

The trend away from vinyl discs continued in the 2000s as fan-made remixes also began to be produced, however by the 2010s the trend reversed and the practice of producing video game soundtracks on vinyl experienced a revival.[1] The vinyl revival of the 2010s has itself been attributed to inspiration in younger music buyers from video games,[4] and it has led to the establishment of video game soundtrack oriented vinyl record labels like Black Screen Records,[5] Data Discs,[6] Brave Wave, and iam8bit,[7] and shifts toward similar releases for labels like Ghost Ramp and Ship To Shore Phonograph Co..[8][9][10] In a 2015 article, music journalist Mike Diver suggested that "this scene within a scene is experiencing boom times", however he noted that some in the music industry, including Invada manager Redg Weeks, were concerned by the risk of over-saturation of the market.[5] These concerns were later repeated by Jamie Crook of Data Discs.[6]

The 2000s-2010s revival of interest in this medium has been characterized by releases in limited numbers and promotional albums only available at special events or as pre-order bonuses.[1] In addition, the practice has been adopted by the Indie game scene, with its proponents citing audio quality,[1] interactivity,[1][11] artwork,[1][12] nostalgia,[5][12] unique content,[12] and the fact that vinyl albums represent tangible aspects of intangible (digitally distributed) products[5][11][12] as the key elements to what makes vinyl soundtrack albums attractive. Due to the limited nature of modern releases, many albums are considered highly collectible, with some regularly selling in excess of $100 USD. For Western collectors, additional difficulty is imposed by the cost of importing albums from Japan where the majority were produced during the "golden age" of the 1980s.[5][12]

Vinyl data[edit]

The use of grooved vinyl discs as a sequenced/encoded rather than recorded data storage medium enabled the code of full motion videos (FMVs) and even simple video games to be stored in an analog format along with the soundtrack and sound effects. These vinyl data discs took two forms: the FMV-only Capacitance Electronic Disc (CED), and the program sheet. Uncommon even in the early 1980s when the practice was at its height, program sheet game data required that users record from the disc (typically a flexi disc like the Interface Age "Floppy ROM") onto an audio cassette tape which could then be used via the cassette port with microcomputers such as the BBC Micro, Commodore 64, Commodore PET, Commodore VIC-20, Dragon 32/64, ZX81, or ZX Spectrum.[159] The use of CEDs to store video game FMV data was even less common, and required the game console (typically an arcade machine) to select a section of the grooved track to read with its stylus at just the right time for the video to be displayed. The numerous limitations of these techniques (background noise, scratches, and other audio-fidelity problems)[159][160][161] contributed to their failure to receive widespread acceptance and video game data stored in this manner remains some of the most difficult to archive and preserve.[162]
