Hey guys, I'm not sure if I've posted about my rips here (which is kind of odd since I've shared this stuff on other forums, go figure :P).

I've recently begun sampling complete NES soundtracks with the help of the powerpak. Everything is up on youtube and available in FLAC or MP3. Download links are in the video description of 'track 1' from each respective soundtrack.

Here's what's up so far-
Batman Returns
Erik the Viking
Kick Master
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (Taito / Follin version)
Magic Johnson's Fast Break
M.C. Kids
New Ghostbusters II
Pictionary
RoboCop 3
Toukon Club

I realize there's something slightly taboo in posting soundtracks like this, let me know if I should remove the links and just link to the youtube channel. But hopefully it's cool, since more will be on the way! :D

I love listening to music very much,especially sentimental music. I think it makes me relaxed and comfortable.
It's very important when we use cellphone, MP3,MP4 or any other tools to listen to music.

"mp4" meaning the mpeg-4 container is fine.
"mp4" meaning horrible MP3 players powered by a Z80 with a deceptive name are indeed fecal.

Unless you have something against patented formats with a blanket policy of denying a license to free software. Theora and Xvid are competitive rate-distortion-wise, with Theora having a big advantage in the license department. This leaves H.264, which is twice as efficient as Theora (same subjective quality at half the bitrate). Sure, the MPEG-4 patents are unenforceable in some countries, but they are enforceable in the country where Parodius Networking is located.

Does anyone here still have the FLAC version of any of these rips that they could re-upload?

These links have been down for like a year. I asked explod/bucky like a year ago if he could re-upload, and I think he said he might get around to it eventually. Alas, he has not (or I missed them again).

I'm sick of listening to classic VGM through emulators (and to the clean-ups and alterations often done for official CD releases). I just want a good lossless recording of the genuine article and be done with it.

If you could point me toward any other hardware rips of any kind of VGM, I'd be most grateful. :) I'm just starting my collection. Right now I mostly just have a handful of Genesis soundtracks and some arcade boards.

I used my brain and Google to find a bunch of bucky's FLAC hardware rips. :) But not most of the ones I was really wanting. :( I really wanted his Batman (GB), Batman Returns (NES), Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade (NES), Magic Johnson's Fast Break (NES), Turok 2 (GB), and The Smurfs 2 (GB).

PM me or whatever if you have them, or ever find them, or ever find any quality hardware VGM rip (lossless only).
