    Project A-Ko 2 Expanded Soundtrack (Dual Laserdisc) [FLAC]

    The expanded soundtrack for Project A-ko 2, from the digital audio track of the laserdisc release.

    You can be allowed a small WTF about this. Laserdiscs (remember them? no?) gradually added features to be more competitive; eventually, they included digital audio tracks as well as analog audio tracks. Mostly, the digital and analog tracks had the same content, but Pony Canyon issued a number of “dual discs,” in which the digital track was something else. In this case, it’s an expanded version of the standard Project A-ko 2 OST with seven additional tracks (side two, cuts 5-11).

    • 05 - Uwasa no Super Girl (Morning version)
    • 06 - Kokoro mo Jump ni Shite! Natsu no Intro (Action version)
    • 07 - Hoshi no Romance (Ondo version)
    • 08 - Uwasa no Super Girl (Aaction version)
    • 09 - Kokoro mo Jump ni Shite! Natsu no Intro (Pops version)
    • 10 - Hoshi no Romance (Kyoushuu version)
    • 11 - Uwasa no Super Girl (Radical version)

    This was found by sheer happenstance. Project A-ko 2 was part of a mass laserdisc buy that was really aimed at a different title. Orphan’s intrepid raw provider happened to notice that the Project A-ko 2 disc had the OST on the digital tracks, and an expanded version at that. Pony Canyon laserdiscs often suffer from bit rot, but this one worked; so here it is, in all its FLAC glory.

    The other Project A-ko laserdiscs have the anime audio on both digital and analog tracks.

    Too bad some many laser discs did not had that audio soundtrack. So many anime with unreleased soundtracks, could have been released in that, and by today we might have had.... Angel Cop, Appleseed, Crying Freeman, Mad Bull... and so much more.

    Kudos for your share , Beautiful Genma Panda

    Thanks - this is great!

    I used to work in the audio industry back in the day (Late '70's - mid 90's) and I remember Laserdiscs well - didn't know they sometimes had digital tracks on them too though!

    Nice thank you

    I never knew LD's had an audio component this way.
