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:
- Side A:
- 01ï¼š POLLYANNA (I BELIEVE IN YOU)
- 02ï¼š BEIN’ FRIENDS
- 03ï¼š THE PARADISE LINE
- 04ï¼š MAGICANT
- Side B:
- 01ï¼š WISDOM OF THE WORLD
- 02ï¼š FLYING MAN
- 03ï¼š SNOW MAN
- 04ï¼š ALL THAT I NEEDED (WAS YOU)
- Side C:
- 01ï¼š FALLIN’ LOVE, AND
- 02ï¼š EIGHT MELODIES
- Side D:
- 01ï¼š 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.
