Shinichi’s Great Deduction

undoubtedly deserves to be called “old soundtrack” as, indeed, the song practically disappeared with the first sound director. Not completely, though—after Episode 295, there were another four inclusions, and the last hurrah was as late as in Episode 443 from 2006.

It’s not just “as often”, it’s almost zero—a mere nine playings isn’t exactly the high score. Ironically, the scene that I associate with Mystery of the Case
is the confession from Episode 339, which is its farewell performance.

I’m afraid it’s safe to assume that both tracks are dead. A remake definitely hasn’t surfaced thus far, and I can’t imagine that it has been left untouched for so long.
The Culprit’s Hideout

was actually pretty stable throughout. It showed up a few times each year, with 2002 having been almost as active as 1996, and, in fact, was overall more frequent than the More and More ver.
Yet, it was the latter that received the ’07
treatment—yes, The Culprit’s Hideout (More and More) ’07
does exist! You can hear it best in Episode 488, but also in Episode 857, which brought it back for a short cameo. It’s the standard version that got cut, not the fast one.

Let’s not forget that the album is only a selection. While sixty-three compositions have been issued on that CD, there are over a hundred fifty revisions altogether.
I recommend everyone who is curious about the rest to watch these videos that present them in chronological order with the most extensive samples available
(free registration required), specially the first nine compilations since those cover the ’07
updates. I’m sure many will be baffled how much has been retained and be like “Wow, it’s basically all there!” because a lot of pieces diminished so quickly that they might have fallen into oblivion or been there all along.
What’s interesting in that regard as well is numbers eleven to thirteen, which contain more than forty new works that were introduced in 2009 and 2010. Had those been released, there would have been an Original Soundtrack 5
. I don’t understand why they’ve decided against putting them out; I think that several tunes are in no way inferior to their predecessors. How is the reception there, anyway? Do average fans even know them?
