Ship To Shore PhonoCo. just opened preorders for their previously announced vinyl releases of the Konami Kukeiha Club soundtracks to Rocket Knight Adventures and Kid Dracula.
Rocket Knight Adventures will be a single LP on “Rocket Flash” red and yellow colored vinyl. It will be housed in a regular LP jacket with artwork from the game.
Kid Dracula will be a 10″ on red vinyl with black splatter. It will be housed in a 10″ jacket with design by Drew Wise and it includes a poster with new art by Austin James and liner notes by Jeremy Parish. Kid Dracula will be the second entry in Ship To Shore’s “Konami Kukeiha Club Museum Series”.
Kid Dracula will be the Famicom version of the soundtrack.
Both releases are priced at $20 and are scheduled to release around December 9, 2017.
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.
Both have been teased for some time, but now they are up for preorder.
The Adventures of Bayou Billy by Konami Kukeiha club will be a 7″ on swamp green marble. It comes with a Japanese-style OBI and an 11″ x 17″ poster with art by Austin James and liner notes by Jeremy Parish. The sleeve features original art by Drew Wise.
The Yetee will have an exclusive variant on clear with “Alligator Blood” red splatter colored vinyl.
The Adventures of Bayou Billy will be the first in a new series of releases titled “Konami Kukeiha Club Museum Series”, which will showcase soundtracks from lesser known games. The next release after Bayou Billy will be the Famicom version of Kid Dracula, so stay tuned for more info on that one later.
The MOTHER 2 soundtrack repress will be the fifth variant available (although the first four was released simultaneously). It comes on “Meteor” yellow with red splatter colored vinyl, but is otherwise identical to its original release.
The Adventures Of Bayou Billy will be priced at $14 and is scheduled to release later this month.

It was announced a while back, but now it’s finally here. Ship To Shore PhonoCo. is releasing a 7″ with the game’s theme song and two tracks from the original score. The music is by Sunny BlueSkyes and Martin Lund.

UPDATE: There will be a special limited edition available as well via Limited Run Games on blue and red marbled vinyl.
We’ve known about this for a while and I think it’s safe to say that it’s one of the most anticipated releases to be announced this year – and now we can preorder it. Yes, the soundtrack to Hideo Kojima’s Snatcher is getting a vinyl release.
The release will be a 2LP pressed on 140g colored vinyl and features the Sega CD version of the soundtrack which is composed by Konami Kukeiha Club. It comes in a gatefold jacket with artwork by Ian Wilding. Also included are two prints of original game art from Konami’s archives.
Four different color variants will be available in total with some being exclusive to certain distributors (see below). The variants are on orange/white/red tri-color (Ship To Shore exclusive), green-in-grey (Ship To Shore exclusive), ultra clear (retail), and red translucent with black splatter (The Yetee exclusive).
The release is priced at $35 and is scheduled to release in Q1 2017. It can be preordered from the following sites:

It’s been known for a while that Ship To Shore PhonoCo. will release the soundtrack to the Konami Famicom title Lagrange Point on vinyl, but recently we’ve been getting more news.
The soundtrack, which is composed by the Konami Kukeiha Club, have never been released outside Japan before and is famous for its use of the VRC7 chip, which improved the quality of sound and music in the game.
The release comes on a single LP and will be available in three different color variants:
– Clear with purple streaks (exclusive to Ship To Shore’s store)
– Clear with blue streaks (exclusive to The Yetee’s store)
– Purple marbled (retail version available through Ship To Shore, Light In The Attic, and One Way Static)
The album will also feature brand new artwork by Drew Wise and feature liner notes from USgamer’s Jeremy Parish.
Preorders will open on Tuesday (September 27, 2016) at 3PM ET via Ship To Shore’s store.
