The wait is over! Brave Wave is excited to announce that a new pressing of the sold-out 4-LP Vinyl Box Set of Generation Series 001: Street Fighter II The Definitive Soundtrack is available to pre-order today!
Pre-order here: http://bigwax.fr/en/brave-wave/gs-001
If you missed out on the last pressing, this is your chance to own this beautiful box set containing 4 colored discs each accompanied by a unique LP sleeve with character art by Akiman. The full-sized booklet contains a foreword by Yoshinori Ono, Executive Producer of the Street Fighter series; an interview with composer Yoko Shimomura; an essay by Matt Leone, Features Editor at Polygon; and original archival artworks.
Street Fighter II The Definitive Soundtrack, released in 2015, features a new digital restoration approved by composer Yoko Shimomura, and includes the full arcade soundtrack: the original CPS-1 score that appeared in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, plus the newly arranged CPS-2 score for Super Street Fighter II Turbo. For further information on the implemented techniques, you can read FACT's interview with our recording and mixing engineers.
Note: The new pressing will be made by a new factory, therefore things like printed colors and paper material/feel might exhibit slight cosmetic differences to the original product. The sound quality is unaltered.
We are excited to announce a new and exciting partnership with France-based BIG WAX, who will lend their expertise by operating Brave Wave's new vinyl online shop located at http://bigwax.fr/brave-wave. Big Wax will handle all future fulfilment and customer service for Brave Wave vinyl releases, including the upcoming Generation Series 002: Shovel Knight release (coming next week!) and Generation Series 003, which will be announced in October.
Big Wax operates out of Europe, but offers shipping options for our customers based in North America. Please note that the new Brave Wave vinyl shop operated by Big Wax has a separate customer service policy from the Brave Wave shop on Bandcamp. The terms and conditions can be found here: http://bigwax.fr/en/about/terms-and-conditions
We are also equally excited to announce a new partnership with Mondo who will be carrying Brave Wave's Generation Series products on their shop. Mondo will offer Street Fighter II The Definitive Soundtrack for pre-order at around the same time as Big Wax.
