From Ship to Shore Phono Co. Website;

"For the first time ever on vinyl, Ship to Shore PhonoCo., in conjunction with Sony Music Entertainment, is proud to present Hirokazu Tanaka & Keiichi Suzuki's original soundtrack to the 1994 Super Famicom classic MOTHER 2: ギーグの逆襲 (MOTHER 2: Gyiyg Strikes Back!).

MOTHER 2, released as EarthBound in the West, is revered as one of the most offbeat and memorable RPGs. Citing influence from artists such as Brian Wilson, Frank Zappa and John Lennon, Suzuki and Tanaka created a diverse soundscape quite unlike anything that came before it.

Remastered specifically for vinyl and released outside of Japan for the first time ever, MOTHER 2 is a must have for video game music and soundtrack fans.

Pressing information:
Each 2xLP is housed in an old style tip on gatefold jacket, and a traditional Japanese OBI strip

Classic Black Vinyl
"ギーグ" [Giygas] Red/Black swirl
"ネス" [Ness] Blue/Yellow Split

So this one is technically the Mach Pizza variant, correct?

Apparently these had an issue at the pressing plant, causing them to not come out as intended with the red and black swirl.

Fans and owners alike have dubbed this variant 'Mach Pizza'.

There's a hidden track at the end of this btw. Another 2 (PSI mix) ends in a locked groove but pick up your needle and move it a bit further along.

There appears to be a hidden track on Side D. Track D3 ends in a locked groove, but if you set the stylus down immediately after that track, there's some more audio. I've never actually played Mother 2 (I know, I'm horrible), so I won't pretend to know what the track is.
