Here are my favorites in no particular order:
White
Labyrinth Fight
On To Grasstown
Mischevious Robot
Gravity
Meltdown 2
Running Hell
Last Battle
Mimiga Town
Oppression
Moonsong
The Way Back Home
Living Waterway
Gestation
Geothermal
Safety

I don't think than Beta tracks and songs that aren't included in the original game should be included in this one, but I do think we could put the Jingles in one Audio file if we really wanna include them. I personally like the Jingles, but I could live without them.

It would be cool if someone went the extra mile and put EVERY song from the Cave Story OST onto vinyl, including the beta/unused stuff. I mean, Bethesda had no problem spreading the whole Fallout 3 OST across 3 vinyls. But it's kinda unrealistic I guess considering costs. An included download code of the whole soundtrack in MP3 format (a la the Bit.Trip Greatest Chips vinyl) perhaps?

Mass production of vinyls is cheaper per vinyl based on the number ordered. Typically each different vinyl requires the construction of two custom presses. This is where the expense lies. After the presses are built production per vinyl becomes inexpensive, so it comes down to how many vinyls you can produce and sell to offset the price of the custom presses used to make them.

These people are cheaper at lower numbers because they produce records by hand instead of using custom presses.

Place this "code" in your browser address bar and watch the magic happen:

From the updated list I'd personally vote to remove Toroko's Theme, Plant, Hero's End, and Cemetary.

The closer we get to fitting inside 40 mins the harder it's going to be.
Edit: just realized the double meaning behind the last sentence. Purely Unintentional.

Well I would thoroughly disagree on Hero's End. You have heard it in full, right?

However Plant and Cemetery make sense as omissions. I would like to also propose the removal of Last Cave and Seal Chamber.

Any objections?

I don't mind losing Seal Chamber, but I love Last Cave. And Hero's End is pretty nice.

Plant, cemetery, quiet, seal chamber and jenka 1 can go

I also don't like Jenka 2 but if someone wants it it can stay. Same for Scorching black.

(I want pulse back q_q)

Don't really mind losing Jenka2, but Scorching Back would be good to have, and Pulse has gotta be on there.

If you guys don't mind I'm gonna make a google form in the style of "Very Disagree, Slightly Disagree, Neutral... etc." for the 65min list. I'll make the results chart public and link everything here.

ALRIGHT, here is the form for those buying the Vinyl!

Here is the results page.

I've made a separate thread with a separate but similar form for the whole forum to participate in. Those results are just for fun data analysis and will be separate from this one for the Vinyl Tracklist.

You accidentally double posted, it would seem.

Awesome! Just putting my vote in now.
EDIT: You forgot to add Pulse to the voting list!

Forgot it wasn't in the second list. I'll add it in there, and assume you two REALLY WANT it.

EDIT: Okay it's tacked on to the end. (End of 5-tier list, favorite list, and the results chart).

EDIT2: Just Voted myself, from the first three of us it seems that Seal Chamber and Jenka 1 are being kicked out.

Alright, that's the five of us that so far have shown interest. I've marked the favorite tracks and tallied them in the results chart.

Here are the tracks in order with their "objective" number:
+9 Last Battle
+9 Running Hell
+8 Oppression
+8 The Way Back Home
+7 Cave Story
+7 Hero's End
+7 Moonsong
+6 White
+6 Wind Fortress
+6 Gestation
+6 Labyrinth Fight
+6 On to Grasstown
+6 Meltdown 2
+4 Mimiga Town
+4 Scorching Back
+4 Gravity
+3 Break Down
+3 Pulse
+3 Safety
+3 Eyes of Flame
+3 Toroko's Theme
+2 Balcony
+1 Last Cave
+1 Living Waterway
+1 Mischievous Robot
+1 Cemetery
+1 Geothermal
-1 Balrog's Theme
-1 Jenka 2
-1 Quiet
-2 Plant
-6 Jenka 1
-7 Seal Chamber
Knowing me I probably screwed something up, so feel free to double check with the results sheet. Also this doesn't necessarily mean this is the final tracklist, there's still a lot of stuff to figure out, probably have to do tie-breakers or something.

Well the current list is:
Last Battle
Running Hell
Oppression
The Way Back Home
Cave Story
Hero's End
Moonsong
White
Wind Fortress
Gestation
Labyrinth Fight
Meltdown 2
On to Grasstown
Gravity
Mimiga Town
Scorching Back

And I may add Breakdown from the next score bracket just to make up the remaining 50 or so seconds.

Consider that Option A.

Option B is to do the same but use Balrog's Theme to make up the time.

Option C is to single loop the Cave Story theme and include 187sec in other songs.

That 187 seconds would likely need to be built from the following:
Break Down (53secs)
Balcony (66secs)
Cemetery (82secs)
Toroko's Theme (93secs)
Eyes of Flame (97secs)
Mischievous Robot (114secs)
Pulse (115secs)
Geothermal (131secs)
Living Waterway (137secs)
Safety (148secs)
Last Cave (171secs)

I like the idea of single looping the Cave Story theme and including those other tracks.
