A 7" companion to the Space Quest IV soundtrack

*UPDATE* If this reaches 100%, I will mail 10 lucky backers an ultra-limited-edition cassette tape version of the SQ4 soundtrack! More info: https://twitter.com/SQHistorian/status/1227600061888106496

When I was putting together the Space Quest IV reorchestrated soundtrack (https://qrates.com/projects/19631), I knew I had to make some tough decisions. There is only room for ~20 minutes on each side of a 12" record, and I was already going a bit over, so some good tunes had to be cut. In the end, I ended up cutting most of the tunes from arguably the most iconic location in the game, the Galaxy Galleria mall.

Which is kind of a pity, I feel. So I created this 7" companion EP. It contains a medley of all the music from the Galaxy Galleria (except the Software Store, which is just the Space Quest theme played on a single-tone PC speaker, and the Skate-o-Rama theme, which is already on the 12" soundtrack album).

NOTE: The pressing plant recommended that the record be cut at 45 rpm, not 33 1/3 rpm as previously stated here. So this will be a 45 rpm record!

P.S. Yes, I know the tunes are not in the order they're laid out in the game. I really struggled with this, but in the end I had to concede that it just flows better this way. :)

NOTE: I have uploaded the final masters to this page. The previews are now of much higher quality (and louder as well) - with some tiny changes and improvements here and there. Enjoy!

THIS IS A NON-PROFIT PROJECT. If there are any residual profits, they will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
