    Contains piano versions of selected songs from Final Fantasy IX for the PlayStation. There is a book, published by Yamaha Music Media, that has the piano scores to the songs on this CD. Go to Yamaha's site to check it out.

    First pressing: Comes with a black, glossy slipcase. The piano on the slipcase is slightly raised and slightly darker than the rest of the slipcase. (Unfortunately, my scanner can't pick that up too well, so you can't see it in my scans.) It does NOT include an obi. The CD and all the text printed on it is also black, and again, my scanner can't pick that up, so all you see in the scan is a black circle. ^_~ The fold-out liner notes have the tracklist in mixed Japanese (kana) and English; sheet music to "Melodies of Life"; a profile of Louis Leerink; a photo of Shirou Hamaguchi, Leerink, and Nobuo Uematsu; a message from Uematsu; and photos of Leerink playing. Also comes with a customer survey card.

    Squaresoft version: Everything is the same as the first pressing, except that it comes with an obi instead of a slipcase. Also comes with a survey card.

    EverAnime version: There are 2 EverAnime versions that I've seen. I do not know which one is the more common of the two.
