    Liner notes translation

    Buy re-release from Play-Asia
    Buy re-release from CD Japan

    Contains arranged, vocalized versions of songs from Final Fantasy 1 through Final Fantasy 6.

    Possible first pressing: The liner notes, CD, and back cover are exactly the same as the SS version. The only thing different I found in this particular copy was the back of the obi. Compare it to the back of the "regular" obi.

    Squaresoft version: Tracklist is in mixed English, French, Portuguese, and Japanese (kana). The liner notes cover is glossy and has a embossed, dark-blue logo. It contains: lyrics, including kana translations of the non-English and non-Japanese songs; a message from and profile of Risa Ohki, who did all the vocals; a message from Nobuo Uematsu; and a message from one of the producers, Yukio Kakehi. Printed across the bottom of the lyrics pages are pictures that look like pagan Christian symbols.

    Squaresoft re-release: Barring any corrections or slight text changes that might have been made to the profiles, messages, and such that I didn't catch, the liner notes and music are the same as the original SS version. The only real differences are the new catalog number, and minor changes to the obi and the back cover, which you can see by comparing the scans above.

    SonMay version: The liner notes cover is not glossy or embossed, and the logo is black. The liner notes have the same content as the official Japanese version, except that the pages do NOT have the symbols across the bottom as in the SS version.

    Interesting note: The date of release on the Squaresoft re-release is listed as 6/25/94 (the date of the original Squaresoft release), although it was actually re-released on 10/1/04.
