It’s been a little while since Ship To Shore PhonoCo. first announced that they would be releasing “LSD Revamped”, which is a reworked soundtrack to the cult Japan-only PS1 game LSD: Dream Emulator.

The revamped version was originally released on CD last year in Japan only and include both revamped versions of the original tracks as well as a series of remixes from different artists. The new vinyl version has had the tracklist rearranged by Osamu Sato himself, so that it will flow better on vinyl.

It is priced at $40 and is ready to release. It can be ordered from Ship To Shore PhonoCo. here.

I’ve asked about EU distribution and Ship To Shore said that both titles will likely be available from an EU vendor, although there’s no ETA on when.
There’s also been some rumors on a possible exclusive Yetee variant for Rocket Knight Adventures, but no news on that one either. I’ll update this post when news are announced.

Rocket Knight Adventures can be preordered from Ship To Shore here, and Kid Dracula here.

Also available is Christa Lee’s “Welcome To The Fantasy Zone” album, which isn’t actual video game music, but rather a love letter to Sega game music, so it might be interesting to some of you Sega fans.
