1985 arcade classic Space Harrier is perhaps most memorable for its lengthy and melodic opening theme, in which SEGA's renowned in-house composer, Hiroshi "Hiro" Kawaguchi (OutRun, After Burner), armed with a Yamaha DX-7 and the most minimal of resources, sought to recreate the sound of a full band. In doing so, he defied the technological constraints of the time and inspired a generation of game composers, including Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage). Space Harrier also shows Hiro playing with a range of sounds and styles, from infectious loops and jaunty battle themes, to the doomy and surprisingly bass-heavy "Wiwi Jumbo." Available for the first time outside of Japan, Space Harrier is presented as a remastered colored 180g LP, pressed at 45RPM and featuring the complete 1985 arcade score, along with a bonus arranged version of the main theme by SEGA's in-house live band (S.S.T. Band). Also included are new and exclusive liner notes written by Hiro himself and a lithographic print of the original artwork from the Japanese archives.
