Someone recently gave this, 2004's Preludio -For All of You FF Lovers-, to me as a gift.  As far as doujin albums go, it's pretty terrific.  Fine selection, tight melodic guitar and synth arrangement work, and some sweet improvisation.
It's a generally energetic power rock affair, which is refreshing from the hair metal/heavy metal norm of these FF doujin CDs.  It's consistent, and just an enjoyable listen for its forty minute duration.  Sample the full album via Youtube:

FFIX's Battle 1 is one of my personal faves; the way it mixes in that brief melodic strain from Living By The Blade is a delectible treat, as is the way they snuck FFV's Main Theme/The Day Will Come into the relaxing acoustics and piano flourishes of FFIV's Theme of Love.  The single FF USA/Mystic Quest arrangement, a suite of the three battle themes in Battle 1 ~ Battle 3, is a welcome addition, but the biggest surprise comes from the FFV track Through The Snowy Mountains.   Wow, talk about a seldom-visited track excelling beyond its original source.  It elevates the song into a delightfully rockin' masterpiece, and as a bonus, an equally excellent arrangement of FFII's Rebel Army Theme caps off the track, making this, to me, the true centerpiece of the album.

As far as I'm concerned, this is the best doujin album available.

Was it new?

Factory sealed, you mean?  I'm in no position to inquire, but it came in one of those resealable CD shrink wraps.  Both disc and packaging were pristine.

Why do you ask?  Does it fetch a good price on the market?

Yes, I've been trying to acquire one myself. It presently runs from $50~80 for a used copy in good condition. Original was shrinkwrapped. Either way you're lucky. smile

The Mystic Quest battle arrangement caught my eye (read: ear) in particular. I just don't hear a lot of nice renditions for what has to be my favorite FF battle tune. smile

It's all about "Temple at the Bottom of the Sea ~ Chaos Temple". Mmm...

Definitely the best FF arrange album ever.
