Unreleased Kikuchi music not done by anyone else yet

Postby tronk21 » Thu Mar 08, 2018 12:25 pm

As you know, kei17 and TheZestanor's have worked hard and provided the Dragon Ball fanbase with many exceptional unreleased Shunsuke Kikuchi BGM cues. Well, unfortunately, they haven't done everything. So I decided to work on those tracks that haven't been worked on yet by anyone (or at least tracks not shared anywhere by anyone yet).

I haven't done only those cues that are missing from all of the unreleased Kikuchi music collections found on the Internet. I also did the BGM pieces that have been shared by either TheZestanor or TheWorldDBZ in their YouTube channels, but can't be found in their full length there. So I've added the missing parts to those tracks.

One important thing: These tracks are in lossy format only. I won't share the lossless version of any track and will ignore every private messages about it. Sorry, I can't. I can only tell what the sources are. These are mostly original Dragon Ball DVDs with 5.1 audio. Ocassionally, I've used Dragon Ball Z Blu-Rays with 5.1 audio. For those DB Movie 2 tracks or parts of tracks I've used the audio from the German dub, which is in 5.1.

Also, my M-numbers are guesswork. Just for archival purposes. No one knows the real M-numbers. That's why an official release of the complete Shunsuke Kikuchi score would be most welcome!

So without further ado I present to you a collection of unreleased music from Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z by Shunsuke Kikuchi not found anywhere else:

That's it! I hope you have fun with those. I certainly had fun with my little editing. Enjoy!

Large has done some of these on his YouTube channel, but they're named as "Unreleased ##" instead of their actual F# names or whatever.

Yes, that's true that he did some of those in general. But as I stated, some of those can be found in other places, but aren't as complete as mine. I've used some of TheZestanor's unreleased pieces as a base and then filled out the missing part or parts.

So in reply for you, I thoroughly analyzed Large's YouTube channel and want to make it clear that he did work on some of those pieces I've presented, but my version of them is clearly more complete than his. Let alone quality of his songs...

Let's compare one by one (Large's YouTube video - M-number on my list):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDcJaJwrke8 - M15

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JYqRUYLcsk - M407

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-W8Vr98YaY - M638

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vw6bdvQ-Zo0 - M1613

Mine are clearly longer!

But maybe you think that on his channel he has some of the tracks that I did in their most complete form. I've checked all the videos from his channel and I think that I know some of his videos that may seem to be as complete as mine if not more. But the thing is that the following tracks of his are not even the same tracks as mine. Mine are alternate versions. I will present them side by side so you can compare in the same pattern as above:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1nfeng4M2M - M22B

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIB4Bmf65Ck - M316A

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yu0VrKQbz80 - M1008-2

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuC3PRBaVKE - M1611B

So yeah, all of the music that I presented cannot be found anywhere else. In fact that was the whole purpose that I started working on Dragon Ball and DBZ BGM. My next step will be to improve some of the tracks that TheZestanor did. His are great, but mine will be cleaner in terms of lacking dialogues and sound effects. However, they will be in lesser quality. The German dub is an old release and has a very poor sound quality (check M441-2). But there will be more of actual music without dialogue and some of the sound effects that his version has. But I will make whole other thread about it once I finish them.

Please do compare my versions of BGMs with those from MugiwaLaarge's YouTube channel and see either the completeness of my pieces over his or the difference between two separate yet similar musical cues.

For some reason, the pitch is off in some of the music cues in episode 2 of DBZ. Especially the one that playes when Roshi explains to Goku how Grandpa Gohan found him.

Nice find! I didn't know that. When you mentioned it, I compared the pitch of the Kamesennin story cue from DB movie 3 with its appearance in DBZ episode 2 (in broadcast audio to have a comparable quality of those two instances of the piece). And yeah, the pitch is higher in episode 2's cue! Also, I think the other movie 3 cue that is used in episode 2 (when everyone tells Raditz that Goku is a decent citizen of the Earth) is also higher in pitch. But I don't see this problem in any other tracks that are not from M600 session. So maybe they played the tape with music from movie 3 in a wrong way when editing BGM for this episode? I don't know. It's certainly an interesting discovery.

I think I know an episode where you can get the first 24 seconds of M1512B without sound effects.

Really? I thought that the alternate version of M1512A has appeared only once in the show. And that's why I've put it here in its entirety as-is. Are you saying there's another instance of its use? Please, do tell!

Why sure! Episode 219, when Videl wants to go with Gohan after Spopovich and Yamu suck the energy out of Gohan. It's right after Kibito heals Gohan.

Thanks! After your comment, I've done my work on the piece and replaced the previous version with the superior one in my first post.

Also, I've added a new short piece M613B. It is an alternate version of this track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPRHKV2HefY

Great! I have to thank you since when I heard this song in episode 229, I desperately looked for it. Then, I randomly found this forum and there you go! I found that song and others I didn't know existed! So thank you!
