$22.00 - GRADIUS
Konami Kukeiha Club

Ship to Shore PhonoCo. is proud to present the soundtrack to Konami's immortal 1985 shoot-em-up GRADIUS. Spanning a multitude of sequels, spin-offs and everything in between, GRADIUS remains one of the crown jewels in the Konami library. This soundtrack introduced multiple themes that would become not only repeated throughout the series, but undisputed classics in the realm of shoot-em-up tunes. 

Included on this record is both the 1986 Famicom/NES soundtrack on Side A and the 1989 enhanced MSX port on Side B. This MSX version has never been officially released outside of Japan, and the soundtrack used the Konami SCC+ chip for enchanced audio, so this versions inclusion is a real treat for fans of the series.

Included with the album is a double sided insert, with one side featuring original GRADIUS artwork from the Konami archive and the other side featuring liner notes from Retronauts' Jeremy Parish. 

New artwork created by Ian Wilding (iwilding.com). Collect all three GRADIUS albums to see the full panorama! (GRADIUS II and GRADIUS III coming soon!)
