Sonic the Hedgehog Boom

Release Date: 2nd Feb. 1994
Record Label: SEGA of America
Catalog No.: DIDX-020642

Sonic the Hedgehog Boom is the first full-length soundtrack release connected to the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. Available only in the west, the album features a selection of tracks from both the North America Special Edition version of Sonic the Hedgehog CD and the Mega Drive version of Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball. Instead of being simple rips from the games, all of the songs are extended mixes. This includes the four Spinball tracks, which were also sequenced outside of the Mega Drive hardware.

Miscellaneous

  • Never sold at stores, Sonic the Hedgehog Boom was only available at select retailers for those who had preordered Sonic the Hedgehog 3, even though no music from that game is featured on the soundtrack.
  • While for years the full versions of these songs could only be heard on this release, certain extended musical cues were reintergrated into the 2011 re-release of Sonic CD.
