AFTER BURNER/SEGA S.S.T. Band

The After Burner/SEGA S.S.T Band album was made by Pony Canyon, published by Scitron and released back in June 21, 1990. It contains 6 original tracks from After Burner II for the Genesis that are slightly remastered, along with two arranged tracks that are written by the SEGA Sound Team(S.S.T.)—with Hiroshi Kawaguchi(the composer of After Burner II) playing the keyboard. It's been out-of-print for some time but you can still find used copies floating around ebay.

The remastered tracks are not too different from the original, I would describe them as being cleaner and the various sounds are more equalized. For instance, with original "FINAL TAKE OFF" from After Burner II the synthesizer is buried in the backround of the bass progression and you can just barely recognize it. With the remastered version of "FINAL TAKE OFF" the sound effects are leveled so the synth sound can easily be heard and the same goes for the other original tracks on the album. The two arranged tracks certainly have a late 80's/early 90's feel to them, with the guitars working power chords, synth rhythms and the orch punches. S.S.T.  put together some catchy remixes. The final track on the album is a collection of sound effects from After Burner II(SE COLLECTION) such as voice commands and the plane taking off and landing. I played this game so much back in the day and it's about time for SEGA to release an upscaled or remastered versions for PC or current gen systems.  The album's uploaded in both MP3 and FLAC.
