About one week ago, Ship to Shore PhonoCo. launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring Mother: The Original Arranged Soundtrack to the West for the first time. This soundtrack includes selected tracks from Mother that have been provided with an orchestral arrangement. After only five days of funding, the project has reached its goal.
At the time of writing this article, the Kickstarter has 965 backers, with $48,804 raised (out of a $42,000 goal) and twenty-five days left. The next stretch goal of $60,000 will allow the soundtrack to come with embossed lettering on the front cover, physical album liner notes, and an obi strip for the album “so that it looks like something that came out of Japan in 1989.”
If you would like to further support the Kickstarter, you can by clicking here. As of now, you can donate $45 to the Kickstarter and receive a white colored vinyl, or you can donate $40 and receive a black colored vinyl.
Do you plan on buying this album? Which tune are you excited to hear the most in the high quality sound of vinyl?
