If you’re a lover of classic arcade video game music then you’ve without a doubt been keeping up with various releases that have been making their way to glorious vinyl, many for the first time. One of our favorite games companies is legendary Japanese developer Taito who have always had lush soundtracks in their games provided by their in-house band ZUNTATA. Ship to Shore PhonoCo. is set to release the first volume in a series of compilation LP’s showcasing the incredible work that ZUNTATA did on Taito’s arcade titles. Volume one contains selections from Night Stalker, Metal Black and Elevator Action Returns, three classics from the early 90s.
Remastered for using source files from the Taito archive and housed in a gatefold jacket featuring 14 cuts pressed on yellow and black vinyl with liner notes by ZUNTATA member Katsuhisa Ishikawa. This is the first ever vinyl release from the Taito archives and definitely a must have if you’re a collector of fan of video game music. Pre orders are open now and available late September for sale via http://www.onewaystatic.com.
