There has to be some sort of irony here. The makers of one of those very popular computer games consoles, Sega, decide to issue the music from some of those games – and decide the best way to do so is via a promotional vinyl album!
Mid C20 technology lives. I come late to the story (the disc was issued in 2009), as I spotted it (while researching vinyl prices) on the site of the people who did the pressing. Apparently they even had to work to get the exact shade of vinyl granules to make sure the colour of the record matched the Sega logo. Around 2,000 numbered copies were issued and seem to be changing hands for small fortunes amongst enthusiasts of games music. Just a shame the sleeve was so rubbish!
