Yougakudan no Rekishi ~ Akyu's Untouched Score (幺樂団の歴史 ～ Akyu's Untouched Score, lit. "History of Yougakudan") is a collection of official Touhou Project soundtracks by Team Shanghai Alice's ZUN. The music contained on the CDs is from the first 5 Touhou games on the PC-98, which used an FM-based soundchip. Every track included is enhanced - the music on the album uses an additional, sixth sound channel previously dedicated to sound effects in the games, which makes it sound more full and impactful compared to the originals. The soundtrack collection is represented by Hieda no Akyuu, who is intrigued by the history of Yougakudan - an FM Synthesis band which has long since disappeared from Gensokyo.
There are five volumes, from volume 1 up to 5. There is an additional minidisc for Perfect Memento in Strict Sense named Yougakudan. Volume 1 is Hieda no Akyuu's début in the series, and she also appears on the CD jacket on the other four volumes. Reimu Hakurei also appears on the vol.4 and 5 jacket, along with Marisa Kirisame and Mima only appearing on vol.4.
- Volume 1, the soundtrack of Lotus Land Story (contains two CDs to accommodate the amount of tracks, and includes two new unused tracks)
- Volume 2, the soundtrack of Mystic Square
- Volume 3, the soundtrack of Story of Eastern Wonderland
- Volume 4, the soundtrack of Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream
- Volume 5, the soundtrack of Highly Responsive to Prayers (also contains an original track)
- Yougakudan, a bonus disc of Perfect Memento in Strict Sense with three new tracks
|"Yougaku", music that is in danger of disappearing from today's world, the predecessor of Fantasy Music. It refers to FM Synthesis here.|
Long ago in Gensokyo, there was a band that preferred to play such music, known as the "Yougakudan".
The functions that were assigned to sound effects are now released, Gensokyo's FM soundtrack has returned to their original forms.

Many years ago in Gensokyo, there was a band known as the Yougakudan which dearly loved FM synthesis.
Here, I shall record the history of the music the Yougakudan has left us that it forever remain in the Gensokyo Chronicle.
