La Compil’ Player One

Player One was a French video game magazine. In the mid 90s, they released a couple videogame CDs bundled with the mag. That one probably was the first VGM CD I ever owned. Well, there was also that DBZ Budokai 3 one, now that I think of it …

Anyway! This CD is quite famous among French video game fans, and I think it actually deserve some international attention. Not only is it a pretty neat compilation of early 90s titles, but it also has some pretty rocking live arrangements. The couple original songs are kinda meh, though.

Unrelated, but the archive for Lord of the Rings pack 2 has been updated with the repaired track 5 provided by Sagi. Many thanks to him.

Enjoy ~

    I downloaded it some months ago (at, and finally I’ve only kept the arrangement of Simon’s theme, to replace my 128kbps copy! Well, I wished the selection was better… most games are unknown to me! and I don’t remember the music was so good. A nice initiative anyway, for that time.

    Budokai3 ? Don’t you mean ‘Super Butouden 3’, i.e. the sfc game?

    By the way, I’ve managed to complete my collection of the SaGa series. Too bad time cannot be purchased! Ah, sorry for being offtopic! ;)

  2. Well, the nostalgia factor is there indeed. But beyond that, I still think the selection manages to mix classics and more obscure goodies quite nicely.

    And yeah, definitely meant Butouden. xD

    What SaGa collection may that be ?

    This Time can be purchased, and is definitely worth it, too. xD

    SaGa *game* collection, to be precise! From Makai Toushi (GB) to Minstrel Song (PS2). Err… actually, I only miss the 2 WSC ports.

    Hmm, this Time isn’t bad, but I’d not spend my money for it. I’ve some difficulties to listen to non game music! (exaggerating just a bit)

  4. Neat ! Also, reminds me I always wanted to listen to the music of those WSC ports =O

    I watched someone playing RS1WSC last year, the music was good but nothing special imo. However, listening to psg music is always a pleasure :)

  6. Still, a rip definitely needs to be made ! xD

  7. Si je ne me trompe pas, les ziks étaient interprétées par “matt murdock”, journaliste de player one (et ensuite producteur sur MCM, game one, etc.)

    Plusieurs themes étaient vraiment bien fichus !

    Maintenant il joue sous son “vrai” nom, alias Patrick Giordano (en plus d’etre toujours producteur à MCM).

  8. MERCI ;))))))))))))))
