Mother soundtrack is getting a cool vinyl release in Japan

Coming to a marked-up eBay auction near you

Sony Music Direct has revealed plans to release the original soundtrack of 1989 Nintendo classic Mother – or EarthBound Beginnings as it is better known in western territories.

The double vinyl LP will launch on December 25 in Japan at a cost of ¥5,000 (or roughly $46). The release features two clear-vinyl LPs, sleekly housed in a minimalist red sleeve.

The track listing is as follows:

Disc 1:

  • Side A:
  • 01: POLLYANNA (I BELIEVE IN YOU)
  • 02: BEIN’ FRIENDS
  • 03: THE PARADISE LINE
  • 04: MAGICANT
  • Side B:
  • 01: WISDOM OF THE WORLD
  • 02: FLYING MAN
  • 03: SNOW MAN
  • 04: ALL THAT I NEEDED (WAS YOU)

Disc 2:

  • Side C:
  • 01: FALLIN’ LOVE, AND
  • 02: EIGHT MELODIES
  • Side D:
  • 01: THE WORLD OF MOTHER (EXTENDED VERSION)

Unfortunately, there appears to be no plans for a western release, so dedicated fans may have to go down the route of imports, or online resales. The Mother soundtrack vinyl can be purchased directly from the Japanese Sony Music Shop or at PlayAsia right here.
