Anime soundtracks that were never released to CD?

Post by mbanu »

...not that there's anything wrong with vinyl or cassettes, of course. :D While looking around to see if I could find the Dagger of Kamui OST on CD, I was surprised to find it never seemed to make the jump.

Are there any other anime soundtracks that you were surprised to find never made it to CD?

Of course, the minute I post about it, I find it -- CPC8-3017 in 1999. :lol: Still maybe an interesting topic, though.

I own a few anime OST on vinyl, one of them I can think of that I don't believe was ever released to CD was the Bari Bari Legend OVA OST. I have both volumes on vinyl but ive never encountered it on any other format.

I know theres a couple of Evangelion vinyls that were released strictly for vinyl and no other format, but they seemed to be just taking the audio from the CD's and putting them out for collectors.

There's quite a few soundtracks that either 1. Didn't get a CD release or 2. Got an incomplete CD release later. Most of these are less popular, though every once in a while a more popular title does end up having 1 or 2 happen. I follow one YT channel that uploads not only rare Japanese music pressings, but also harder to find anime OSTs here: https://youtube.com/c/MartyMcfliesv2
