Huh, seeing this thread reminded me that I also own some FF soundtracks. I don't have them here though, they're sadly collecting dust in my parents' basement...I should pick them up the next time I visit them. I own these OSTs on CD:
FFVII - strange, since I'm not that big of a fan of this game's music
FFVIII - strange, since I'm not that big of a fan of this game in general, and only played it for like five hours
FFX - not strange, since it's one of my favourite two FF main series games
Oh, and I also downloaded the FFVI soundtrack on iTunes once, but for some reason was not charged for it. Apple did however block me from making any more purchases on their store back then until I had paid for the OST. I never did. Certainly not a bad album to get for free.
Just checked these out and they are awesome! I'll have to give them a proper listen soon.
I'm not such a great fan of jazz as listening material, but I've always fancied sitting in a jazz lounge and having it in the background etc. So hearing tunes I know (albeit with improvisations, of course!) in jazz format is really quite interesting and helps me tune into jazz in general.
The Black Mages albums are good as they contain tracks from many different games. As for the original music, I have a few songs downloaded from the OSTs between III and IX (with a bit of Crystal Bearers, of course!).
