The North American anniversary of the launch of the iconic Nintendo 64 console is coming up this Thursday, and it’s not going uncelebrated. The folks over at Patient Corgi (Super VG Christmas Party, SOUND WAVES: A Tribute to Ecco the Dolphin) decided to put together a massive fan tribute album to mark the momentous occasion!

Tribute Album 64 will be a huge 87-track mega album done by a large assortment of bands and musicians within the video game music community over five discs covering the greatest the Nintendo 64 had to offer us all.

“Some of the most beloved themes in all of video game history were born on this console from the minds of great composers like Koji Kondo, Grant Kirkhope, Robin Beanland, Kazumi Totaka, Graeme Norgate, and so many others. We’re incredibly thankful for the astounding number of talented bands and artists that have teamed up with us to pay tribute to the music of this iconic system, and I personally couldn’t be happier with the result. Be sure to check out the contributors’ websites for more great music (and the same goes for the original composers). Enjoy, and thanks for listening!”— Ian Luckey, Producer

You’d be hard-pressed to not recognize at least some of the names in that large of a lineup. While some staples, such as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 64 show up quite a bit, you’ll also be hearing some less prevalent N64 game music such a Chameleon Twist 2 and Buck Bumble. Each disc will be featuring its own listening party exclusively in 8bitX Radio in the days following the album’s launch, so fans should make note of the following dates for each.

The album itself releases this Thursday, September 29th so keep your eyes and ears peeled for the release, as we’ll be sure to stay on top of it ourselves!
