This is the first I've heard of these Data Discs. Just googled it and I'm seriously tempted to order the Revenge of Shinobi soundtrack 8) .

I was lucky and got one of the 50 signed by Yuzo Koshiro! Got several of the others too, Golden Axe, Streets of Rage 1 and 2, Sonic Mania and Shinobi III.

My first vinyl was Shenmue, pretty good stuff.
Preordered Afterburner, as it looks fantastic :)

Talking about Yuzo Koshiro, just received the "Perfect Soundtrack" version of Streets of Rage.
Love the 3 new exclusive tracks :D

Quite a nice haul this week - Judas Priest's "Firepower", the three latest instalments in the "I Love Acid" series, and the score to "The Last Jedi".

Yeah I got one. Great sounding package for a soundtrack that’s not huge.

These are my recent buys:

Steve Vai, Passion and Warfare (2013 repress) - one of the coolest cover designs ever and one of the coolest albums ever; glad to finally have it on vinyl.

Scissor Sisters debut album (2014 repress) - never knew this was released on vinyl until about a week ago when they had an original press in my local charity book and music shop; they wanted £20 for a record of dubious condition without any warranty so I decided to hold out for a repress (which they said didn't exist) and guess what I found after a quick look on Amazon?

Nirvana, Bleach (2009 repress) - nothing particularly exciting about this one (straight off the rack from HMV) but £15 for a remaster from the original tapes isn't a bad deal; the only Nirvana I'm missing now is In Utero and I'll wait for HMV to put it on special offer.

Stevie Wonder, Hotter Than July (2017 repress) - got this for £13 in the reduction section of my local indie record store; known and loved the album on CD for years and glad to snap it up at the right price on vinyl.

Elvis Costello and the Attractions, Goodbye Cruel World (2015 repress) - £10 from the reduced bin and the first EC album I've bought (apart from a greatest hits comp on CD); didn't know a single song from the track list but when I first played it I certainly wasn't disappointed.

Data Discs, Revenge of Shinobi - mentioned an interest in this before and it didn't take long for me to make it happen.

Data Discs, Space Harrier (pre-order) - just got the e-mail for this and quickly snapped it up.

I have this album. The music is good too.

The key things that are unique about this album (apart from the mentioned hologram) are the following:

- side 1 plays from the inside out
- there are two bonus tracks in the centre of the record (one plays at 45RPM, the other plays at 78RPM)
- there are two versions of the first track on side 2 (one electric, one acoustic) and which one you get depends on where you place the needle on the record

In order to access all the features on the record, you need a TT with a manual tonearm and support for 78RPM.

My deck doesnt do 78s but the other features work well. Apparently the reverse play thing yields better sound as it the needles pushes better against the groove
