Sonic Dance Power CDs
|This page has even more modern era Sonic music to see. With every game seemingly getting at least 1 sound track CD, there are plenty of things to collect and hear.|
|Here's a better look at the They Call Me Sonic disk.
The disk case uses just the "Sonic" part of the logo but it seems slightly compressed? The title is written in a curve around his face. It has 4 songs on it, and the paragraph at the top is the credits for them. The disk itself is plain/shiny CD with the track listing, name & curling title. This is all pretty typical of the time of its release which was 1996 by Arcade Music Co & CNR Music
The credit is interesting because it claims
"Music & Lyrics by Emerald Hill, Spike Shellcracker & Oscar Oberheim, and the tracks were produced by Sonic Survival Team, Akropolis Musikverlag & edition Magic Wonderland. Clearly a few of these are made up specifically to credit in here (yes badnick) and never seem to went on to do anything else.
The track listing is They Call Me Sonic Airrave, Rave Sonic Wing Fortress Rave Zone, They Call Me Sonic Extended Mix & Final Zone

|This isn't a repeat entry for R...it's a record!
This is Sonic R "Work it Out", but it is an actual vinyl record rather than the usual CD. It uses wrong art, as you can see it's got that "wierd walkin' SA1 Sonic", when R was produced before the 'modern' era. The case seems to be a thick card type material 'envelope' for the vinyl record. It was done by King Street Records with Richard Jaques Featuring DeeDee Brave with the song "Work it Out" from Sonic R.
There are 2 sides to this (unlike a CD) with
Side A having Eric Kupper Classic Mix, Eric Kupper Dub mix and
Side B having Hex Hector Dub Mix and Ground Control Dub Mix
It seems to have been made in 1999, which explains their need to put SA1 Sonic on there, as that was its relase.

|Here is a disc of music produced by "Arcade Records" and released in Europe. It uses Game Gear art of Sonic on a spring for the cover. The yellow starburst says "Includes CD ROM part: Sonic Video & Comix Zone Game", so, this has more than just music on it. Comix Zone was a well regarded game that was unusual for it's time, so it's possible that Sega EU wanted to push/promote it and so included it even though it's non-Sonic. There are 2 languages on the case...
But why? It's mostly in English, but the red writing at the bottom of the back is in German somehow. The case interior is very similar to the case back art but if you look carefully at 'drink holding Sonic' stock art you can see he has the rare and unusual "light blue eyelids" treatment, which is interesting to see. The disk itself is pretty plain, just blue with yellow and the classic logo.
|The track listing is
1. They Call Me Sonic
2. Sonic Metropolis Trance Zone
3. Sonic Electronic
4. Sonic's Brain Scrap House
5. King of The Ring Extended
6. Rave Sonic Wing Fortress Rave Zone
7. Entering Death Egg Zone
8. Sonic & Tails
9. They Call Me Sonic Extended
10. King of The Ring Radio Zone
11. Final Zone
The other items are the Video, the Comix Zone and a CD player software so you could use it if you didn't already have it. (Remember, this is the earlier days of PCs.)
As with the They Call Me Sonic above the credit is interesting because it claims
"Music & Lyrics by Emerald Hill, Spike Shellcracker & Oscar Oberheim, and the tracks were produced by Sonic Survival Team, Akropolis Musikverlag & edition Magic Wonderland. Clearly a few of these are made up specifically to credit in here (yes badnick) and never seem to went on to do anything else. CD photos & owned by Hedgy
