Eurobeat Cover Art Collection

Posted on

Here’s something different! This is something I worked on today. So, I went on Ben Dodson’s iTunes Artwork Finder and downloaded the most eurobeat cover art I could find. I also included a lot of stuff from Junodownload (lower resolution though), bandcamp and artists website too. I also decided to avoid scans and photos as much as possible. The resulting file is… nearly 1 GB with 746 files!

Download here!!

I did not alter any of the file, except my own and a very very very few exceptions. If something’s missing, it’s because it’s unavailable, etc. There are also some cover art that I have that aren’t even available anymore!

Also, I don’t know if I will be updating this or not given that it’s a 1GB upload each time…

Enjoy!

Removal of Eurobeat Festival volumes

Posted on

Hey guys.

Just an heads up. Sugano finally uploaded Eurobeat Festival Vol. 1 & 2 to bandcamp:

https://suganomusic.bandcamp.com/album/eurobeat-festival-vol-1
https://suganomusic.bandcamp.com/album/eurobeat-festival-vol-2

So, this effectively means I’m removing download links for them. Hope you enjoy your preview files and please encourage Sugano! Those are very good Eurobeat compilations!

Note that, if a Vol.3 gets released, that doesn’t mean I’m not going to upload it. I will just follow the same rules: keep it up until Sugano put it up for sale on Bandcamp.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Cheers y’all.

[とらのあな] V.A. – 東方幻奏響Uroboros業 ~EndOfTheUltimateOverdrive~

Posted on

And now, for the behemoth. La pièce de résistance. The second biggest release of the day (after SEB 217) I present… Touhou Gensou Hibiki Uroboros Gyou ~EndOfTheUltimateOverdrive~ (screw your capitalization)!

Cover

Label / Catalog Number: とらのあな – TORA-00171~00174
Country: Japan
Discogs link: Click here, includes tracklist.
Release date: Dec. 29, 2015
Rip info: Ripped, copied, scanned, taggued by myself.
Download: Click here (3.5 GB)

This thing is 3 audio CDs (45 tracks total) and 1 DVD-ROM of music (59 more tracks). 104 tracks total and one hell of a tagging mess! The Audio CDs were ripped with EAC as usual. The DVD content was in WAV 16/44.1 in fact (CD quality). So… I had converted everything to FLAC and tagged the mess. And that Discogs entry? Took me 14 hours to do. Oh and the DVD also has a nice PDF with credits and lyrics.

I actually purchased this to get an extended for Eurobeat Union’s “Sign Of Autumn / Nu-Ko”. Because, yes, that’s where it appeared. It wasn’t a new track in a mix. Also, this package is VERY diversified. There’s a genre for everybody on this.

[Crazy Beats] V.A. – 頭文字T T-Selection Vol.02

I promised. And, now, I deliver. So, now this series is complete until a new release. (also, this is an intermezzo before the final and second biggets release!)

God I’m lucky that Melonbooks restocked it. Wasn’t feeling like asking my forwarder to go to a con for this single volume.

V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 217

Posted on

And now, for one of the “pièce de résistance”.

cover

Label / Catalog Number: Avex Trax – AVCD-10217
Country: Japan
Discogs link: Click here, includes tracklist.
Release date: Aug. 3, 2011
Rip info: Personal rip and scans

This CD will go among the history of Super Eurobeat. It contained Travis Stebbins’ “The Top” (under Ken Blast) and appeared on Initial D. You might ask yourself, “Why is it such a big deal?” I paid this CD roughly 85$CAD. Used. Once I received it, the price tag became 200$CAD on Amazon Japan. Sellers such as KUPIKU-COM on Discogs (see Discogs link above) sell it for… *drum roll* 650$ CAD (~500$US). This CD is quickly becoming one of the rarest and most expensive SEB CDs of all time (along with SEB Vol. 7 (AVCD-10007)). And it will be excessingly more expensive if another copy shows up with an obi. I was lucky to find a decent copy at that price with the coupon-insert and obi. I was almost seeing myself with this CD but without the obi, because it’s THAT rare.

Now, to the rip itself. It’s a MAJOR upgrade over the last FLAC. See, I discovered that TheGr8est’s rips removed the silence between the tracks which makes his rips… incredibly inacurate. So, yes, the current version of “Rocketman” by Mega NRG Man is missing the 10sec silence between itself and the ballad remake. So, this rip, for the first time, fixes all that! And, don’t ask why the booklet scans have a yellow-ish tint. I’m as clueless as you.

V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 198 -Queen Of Eurobeat-

Time for the actual mix and CD release…

Release date: June 3, 2009

Sometimes, you ask yourself “why is this even a thing?” This is one of these cases of “WHY THE FUCK IS THIS SO FUCKING EXPENSIVE?” It’s not even a good mix. Sure, there are a couple of good songs among the new one but that’s about it. Also, the front booklet scan is dirty, looks weird, etc. and you are wondering why. It’s foil. Yeah. “But I had this Russian’ scans and it looked better!” I don’t know how they managed it but I know for sure that it’s not color inverting.

Another question I can see people asking me: “Why would I download this when there’s already one out there?” Answer: *shrug* Dunno. Just putting it up. Had to rip it to access if it would rip corrctly or not (result: it ripped correctly).

There was a FLAC rip for this but, there was no log for it. At least, I didn’t have any for it. Also, I grabbed a copy before it because excesdingly expensive. Because… it’s going to be one of those… Thanks “Hot Hot Racin’ Car”.

A note about BMP Scans: I actually scanned this twice. Yes, twice. The first time around, I… saved to JPG. Hence why the two sealed scans are in JPG and not in BMP. So, I retook in BMP for the rest.

Express Love! Yeah, I looped the chorus of the song once lol. Too good. For the rest, it’s a pretty good mix. However, for me, that decade wasn’t very memorable at all. From that tracklist, I’d say maybe “Fight”, “Sunday”, “She’s A Devil”, “Express Love”, “Gotcha!”, “Tonight” and Fall In Love” are memorable. Ther esta re just pretty much what i thought to be popular / what is memorable for other fans.

Anyway, enjoy!

Yes…

…I will provide SEB 242. Next week. Probably. Coz I’m too cheap to have EMS shipping like everybody else. Or to live in a country where Air Mail isn’t slow mail.
