Essence of Lime is a remix album covering the soundtrack to The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages. The project was originally a one-man endeavor that evolved into a community project. Having been introduced to the Zelda series through Oracle of Ages, I noticed the lack of Oracle remixes and decided to take on a solo remix project in early 2008. I planned to remix Oracle of Ages' entire soundtrack by myself, assuming there would not be enough interest to organize a full-fledged project. After receiving several unexpected offers to help out, I was proven wrong. I am deeply grateful to everyone who helped me tackle the project despite its humble beginnings; this would have never been finished without them.
With 42 tracks by 17 remixers, the album contains over two hours of music. Enjoy it, or else.

Lime of the Season is a remix album paying tribute to the soundtrack to The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons. It complements the previously-released Essence of Lime, which covered Oracle of Ages. This time, we've worked the gameplay premise of Oracle of Seasons into the music. Every track has been assigned a season and arranged accordingly; a spring track might represent a rainy day or young love, while an autumn track might represent a creepy dungeon or a chilly morning. It was up to each musician to decide how to approach the arrangement.
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons were developed by Flagship and Capcom for the Game Boy Color and released simultaneously in 2001--February 27 in Japan, May 14 in North America, and October 5 in Europe. The two games' soundtracks, excluding a few remixed Koji Kondo pieces, were composed by Kyopi and Minako Adachi.
