The Super Mario 64 Original Soundtrack is a video game album that was produced and copyrighted by Nintendo and published by Pony Canyon. The album was released in Japan and North America in 1996 and Europe in 1997. The soundtrack has thirty-four tracks from the game with the same name, as well as a voiceover intro from the title screen, which is performed by the star of the game, Charles Martinet; the final track is a bonus piano version of Piranha Plant's Lullaby performed by Koji Kondo. The Japanese release is also the first of ten soundtracks in the Nintendo 64 Sound Series.
The soundtrack is featured in Super Mario 3D All-Stars alongside the Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy soundtracks, albeit with a slightly altered version of the Japanese cover used to represent it.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars description
"The Nintendo 64 system gave this Mario adventure a more realistic instrumental sound than any prior game in the Super Mario series. This soundtrack enhanced player experiences with arrangements that smoothly transitioned between each 3D space."
