Streaming Arrow Records is excited to present a long-overdue vinyl reissue of the soundtrack to the first entry in Nihon Falcom's long-running Action Role-Playing game series Ys I: Ancient Ys Vanished. Originally released for the NEC PC-88 in 1987 and composed by the legendary Falcom Sound Team jdk. The soundtrack to "Ys I: Ancient Ys Vanished" is nothing short of a technical marvel capturing the full breadth of emotions from the wistful and reflective opening "Feena", The oppressive and intimidating "The Last Moment of the Dark", and the exhilarating "Final Battle".
Our release will include a slew of extra music on top of the original soundtrack including unused, arranged, and version exclusive tracks including, "Devil's Step", "Tension", "In the Memory", "Fly With Me" and more have been carefully remastered to sound better than they ever have sounded before on vinyl.
