I'm back again after a long break. So far,
Duchemole's Shadow Dancer pack isn't released
yet, so I'll able to do this myself. Plus,
the VGM is logged to a current version of
MAME.

Shadow Dancer in Genesis isn't the same as
the arcade version, but Master System does.

There's a bootleg version of this game that
runs on Sega System 16, and instead of RF5C68
soundchip for PCM, they used OKIM5205 for the
bootleg version. Maybe, if M5205 is supported
in VGM file format, I would add it.

Valley Bell said that Sega bootleg are Sega
System 18 based, according to segasys16.cpp
source code.

Track listings are taken from "Legend of Joe
Musashi: SHINOBI Music Collection [WM-0626~9].
As well as M1 listing too, and I also added
some respective track names that these two
albums didn't mentioned in the final release
of the OST. Japanese track names are also
taken from the same album, but with respective
japanese names this time.
