Lost Tapes is a CD by Hirokazu Tanaka. It features draft/demo versions of many of his tracks throughout his career in the video game industry (such as at Nintendo and Creatures, Inc.). Examples include the Nintendo NES M82 theme or OP Type B2, an earlier version of the Aim to Be a Pokémon Master theme from the Pokémon anime.[1]

It was released on March 24, 2021, currently exclusively to Japan. Early buyers from Disk Union would also get a cassette tape with handwriting, containing two songs from demos.[2] These are named "Neo Aco♫ Demo", "XMS★ Demo".[3]
