From Final Fantasy Wiki

There have been two different releases of the Original Soundtracks of Final Fantasy I & II, corresponding to the original release of each game and to the release of the Final Fantasy Origins compilation.

The music of the original Final Fantasy and that of Final Fantasy II was first released as a single compilation album, All Sounds of Final Fantasy I & II in 1989, to moderate critical acclaim. Following this release, the arranged album Symphonic Suite Final Fantasy was released to great critical acclaim, being called "an orchestral masterpiece" by Square Music reviewers and lauded by other sources as well.

In 2002, for the release of Final Fantasy Origins, the soundtrack was rearranged and released as the album Final Fantasy I & II Original Soundtrack by Uematsu and Tsuyoshi Sekito, who won praise for his involvement and who would become, the following year, the lead guitarist of the Black Mages.

All Sounds of Final Fantasy I & II is the complete soundtrack of the original NES versions of Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II, on one disc. Tracks 1 and 49 are arranged versions of themes from both games. Tracks 2 - 21 are from Final Fantasy and 22 - 48 are from Final Fantasy II.

The original soundtrack of Final Fantasy introduced three of the musical themes that became a staple of the series ever afterward, as well as some lasting fan favorites such as "Matoya's Cave". Uematsu, at the time Final Fantasy was still being produced, was asked to compose the music for the game by the series' creator Hironobu Sakaguchi during a meeting at the small offices where Square Co., Ltd. was then located. After the game's success, Uematsu was asked to compose the music for the next entry in the series, which, despite its name, was not to be a direct sequel of Final Fantasy. Final Fantasy II introduced the fourth of the recurring themes, the Chocobo's Theme.
