Japanese record label Dog Ear Records, founded by Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu, put out Pia-Com this week, a collection of piano arrangements from popular Famicom games performed by pianist Keita Egusa. It isn't available to buy and download online yet, but Dog Ear's CDs typically pop up on iTunes shortly after their release.

The tunes featured on Pia-Com include selected tracks from classic titles like Elevator Action, Yie Ar Kung-Fu, Mappy, and Mother. The record label set up a site where you can sample all seven songs and watch Egusa play several of them, too. I've included the full tracklist, translated by Original Sound Version, after the break.

Dog Ear also posted a music video for the latest single from Uematsu's 10 Stories CD, "The Chef Who Used His Noodle". I had no idea the company was producing music videos for the album! Unfortunately, judging by the Youtube "view count" on the productions, it doesn't look like many other people knew, either.

More videos: "Coconut Castaway" and "Conga Stories".
