Soundtracks still for sale

Last month J2O reported on the soundtracks of JJ1, JJ2, and JJ3 being released commercially for the first time ever, as part of the “Retro Game Music Bundle.” That bundle is over, but they’ve been made available again, over at loudr.fm:

Both are brought to the site by Joypad Records, which also sells the soundtrack to Noogy’s Dust: An Elysian Tale, among plenty of other albums. I can’t tell you anything about where the money goes — Joypad, GMB, Epic, Robert Allen, Alexander Brandon — because I have no clue.

I’m not going to recommend you buy this… there’s no indication that GMB or Joypad have fixed any of the various issues that people brought up while the bundle was running, the price has risen substantially since then, and it’s no longer really a hot-button news item that people might pay attention to. But it’s kind of nice to know that the soundtracks are still available, on what looks like a permanent basis, don’t you think? Now if only the same could be said for the games themselves…

I’m working on a proper soundtrack rip of Jazz 1 & 2 for anyone who’s interested (although I suppose most of you will be satisfied with just playing the game files directly.) Don’t waste money on this hack’s lazy, careless work.

Someone should ask about this on the Epic Forums. (I’m not a member of the Epic Forums, and I don’t have any reason to register other than this question, so I don’t see the point)

They wouldn’t reply. They only seemed to notice that the bundle existed on its very last day, and they don’t tend to reply to any threads unless they’re about very specific topics about the very newest games.

@ThunderPX weren’t we working on this together long ago? I’m still available for help, now if only I remembered to turn Skype on more often…

Yeah, but in light of these guys screwing things up and misrepresenting the awesome Jazz soundtracks, maybe it’s best not to do all the extending and tweaking we were going to do originally… I wouldn’t mind getting your feedback on how I did stuff, though.
