Distant Worlds II: More Music From Final Fantasy can now be ordered on vinyl

Late last year it was announced that the arranged Distant Worlds recording of music from Final Fantasy was being sold at the concerts, and earlier this year it was available online.

Now the second volume in the series is up to order on Amazon. It appears to be a similar release to the first one as it will be a black 2LP housed in a gatefold jacket with images from the recordings.

It features arrangements of tracks from Final Fantasy I and V-XI performed by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Arnie Roth.

It is priced at $35 and is available to order on Amazon here. It says it’s in stock so it appears it’s ready to ship as well.

Spacelab9 is releasing a new Namco arcade music compilation

Spacelab9 have been teasing this release in their newsletters for some time and today a listing for it appeared seemingly out of nowhere.

The release will have music and sounds from the following Namco arcade titles: Pac-Man, Galaga, New Rally X, Mappy, Xevious, Dig Dug, Bosconian, Gaplus, Dragon Buster, The Tower of Druaga, Sky Kid, The Return of Ishtar, Rolling Thunder, and Splatterhouse.

It will be a single LP on “pixel explosion” clear vinyl with multicolor splatter.  The release is housed inside a regular LP jacket and comes with a booklet detailing the games represented on the album.

It is priced at $35 and can be ordered from ThinkGeek here now. As mentioned earlier, this listing appeared suddenly and without a word from Spacelab9 so it’s currently unclear whether there will be other color variants later on.

UPDATE: Spacelab9 have now sent out a newsletter detailing 2 exclusive variants. They will have a “Pac-Man” yellow and clear variant and a “Galaga” grey and black split variant. Both will be limited to 200 copies each with 150 of the Galaga variants reserved for European customers. Orders for both will open on March 2, 2018 from Spacelab9’s website.
