Johto Legends (Music from "Pokémon Gold and Silver") is a sweeping orchestral re-imagining of the classic handheld soundtracks by arranger Braxton Burks. Funded on Kickstarter with nearly 1,000 backers, Johto Legends fulfills its campaign promises and more, giving Pokémon fans over an hour of new music on CD, vinyl, and digital formats.

The album features breathtaking performances by some of the game industry's greatest talent with credits that include Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions and The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, as well as games like Destiny, Dragon Age, Tomb Raider, and Minecraft.

"Johto Legends is a passion project I've wanted to fulfill since I was eleven years old. Almost every day after school, I'd get on the bus home and turn on my Game Boy Color, loaded with a copy of Pokémon Crystal Version. I spent countless hours headbutting trees in the Ilex Forest, exploring the remains of the Burned Tower, and tracking down the legendaries Entei, Raikou, and Suicune... but it was the game's soundtrack that really pulled me in with its memorable 8-bit melodies, an eclectic mix of romantic harmonies and Japanese folk music - the perfect backdrop for the Johto region. Sometimes I'd even imagine what the music would sound like if it were orchestrated by one of my idols, John Williams. 'I wish I could do that,' I thought. Well, I ended up carrying that dream to adulthood, fueled by my ongoing love affair with the Pokémon games that persists even to this day. I hope listeners will be able to recall their own nostalgic Pokémon journey - the battles, the towns, the routes and caves... and all the adventures in between." - Braxton Burks
