The Music of Castlevania III

Game Rips
Once again, this whole soundtrack is also on the Akumajou Dracula Best 1 album, but that is for the Japanese version, which has somewhat different sounding music, due to a special chip inside the cartridge. I'm personally split on some the music - songs like Beginning and Mad Forest sound much better in Japanese version, but songs like Rising are preferable in the American release. I recorded a majority of the songs from the sound test, leaving out the crappier tunes.
