For a few years now, Video Game Music on Vinyl has made a massive resurgence, with big game releases such as Devil May Cry, to smaller obscure games like LSD Dream Simulator, or even Doshin The Giant getting vinyl releases!
One of my many interests, besides SEGA Saturn of course, is collecting and listening to records, with the biggest part of my collection being Video Game Soundtracks. I don’t usually buy them all, but I try to focus mainly on soundtracks that were put on SEGA consoles, and most importantly, those released on the Saturn.
I don’t have every release sadly, and there are some not released as of this posting, so hopefully in the future, I’ll cover those in a part two.
In this video, I wanted to not only show off the record itself, but give a demonstration of how the record would sound at it’s best. This way, all flaws heard in the music shown off in the video would be the flaws of the record itself, and not the equipment you are listening to them on, giving buyers an idea of how good/bad the record itself would sound on their own setups.
I also give some tips of what to look for when determining the quality of the records you buy, and some of the inner record sleeves you should look out for/replace if possible.
