Sonic Team "PowerPlay"

From Sega Retro

Sonic Team "PowerPlay" (ソニックチーム "パワープレイ" ~ベストソングス・フロム・ソニックチーム~) is a compilation album featuring music from the collective works of Sega development group Sonic Team. Only containing the vocal themes from their games, the core of the disc focuses on the studio's Sega Saturn output, including three different versions of "DREAMS DREAMS," the theme song to NiGHTS into Dreams. While the packaging only mentions one bonus track, there is another hidden track that immediately follows, the theme song to Sonic Adventure, a game that had yet to come out as the Dreamcast was still three weeks from being released. Also featured on the album are songs from Burning Rangers and Sonic the Hedgehog CD.
