Vampire Killer
Vampire Killer for the MSX has mostly the same music as the NES version - except the ending song, which is entirely exclusive to this version. Thanks to Proto for ripping these.

Castlevania II
The Famicom Disk version of Castlevania 2 had, quite honestly, pretty crappy music compared to the NES version. The Akumajou Dracula Best 1 album did include 3 tracks from the cartridge release, but not all of them. So this is the complete soundtrack.

Castlevania III
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.

Dracula X: Rondo of Blood
I was always rather annoyed that the soundtrack release of Dracula X didn't have the non-CD Audio music tracks, but Protogem has recorded all of the synth music from ingame.

Castlevania: Dracula X
The SNES version had surprisingly faithful music compared to the PC Engine original. I actually prefer a few of the songs, such as Bloodlines and Cemetary here in the SNES one. I still don't know why they put in the outrageously crappy Picture of a Ghost Ship over Cross a Fear. *sigh* A special thanks to Elbryan42 for recording and encoding the last four songs.
