Originally released by Sega in 1993, the fast-paced soundtrack follows Sonic’s thrilling adventure through time as he attempts to save Little Planet from the clutches of the evil Doctor Robotnik.

When writing the score, original composers Naofumi Hataya and Masafumi Ogata took influence from house and techno records to reflect the chaotic nature of Sonic’s journey in the game.

Their score was re-written for the new release but includes the original artwork and Naofumi Hataya’s liner notes.
