Perhaps best known for scoring the Street Fighter II and Final Fantasy XII soundtracks, virtuoso fusioneer Yuji Toriyama goes way back, as proved by this edition of Time Capsule's Choice Works series that digs deep into his earliest instrumentals and TV work made between 82 - 85. Written, produced and played by himself, using some seriously futuristic kit for the time, Yuji's cosmic, heavily narrative compositions are given the spotlight they've needed for almost 40 years; highlights include the slap bass pops and star gazing synth strikes of "Donna", the aerobic boogie of "Night Together" and the tropical midnight glider "Maze". Choice indeed.
