50th ANNIVERSARY GODZILLA SOUNDTRACK PERFECT COLLECTION (BOX 3) (CD)
Composed by: Akira Ifukube, Masaru Satoh, Riichiro Manabe

1: GODZILLA VS. THE SMOG MONSTER 1971 Riichiro Manabe
2: GODZILLA VS. GIGAN 1972 Akira Ifukube
3: GODZILLA VS. MEGALON 1973 Riichiro Manabe
4: GODZILLA VS. THE COSMIC MONSTER (aka Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla) 1974 Masaru Sato
5: TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA 1975 Akira Ifukube
6: BONUS CD: "GODZILLA 3" (Toho Record) and the songs collection

Unlike the first box set that contained 7 total discs, set 2 & 3 only have 6. All of the soundtracks in this box set have been re-mastered and give improved sound over the now out of print Futureland releases elsewhere on this site. All the discs also contain some additional bonus tracks not found on the previous discs. In addition the booklets feature new cover pictures.

The first three discs in this set clock in at over 72 minutes each and the Bonus CD, GODZILLA 3, is a whopping 73:26. Discs 4 & 5 are 50:34 and 41:03 respectively. Like the first two boxed sets, this third one has wonderful packaging and the booklets seem to have more photos than the booklets from the first set. Also, we can now see each composers face through the clear CD tray on the left side as well as a scene from the set during the filming. This does not apply to the bonus disc which only has a plain black tray.

These newly remastered soundtracks also contain the rare vocal promotional songs that were previously available only on those early Toho 45 vinyl singles, or the now out of print "Godzilla Vocal Collection" CD from 1991 and the more recent "Godzilla Songbook" CD that is still available on some sites. For example, the Godzilla Raids Again score from the first boxed set has those two promotional songs from 1955 at the end of the disc and the Godzilla's Revenge CD that comes with set #2 has a promo song that is only found on the Godzilla Vocal Collection CD from 1991 (or the older 45 vinyl single perhaps), it was not re-released on the newer Godzilla Songbook CD for some reason. The bottom line is that these new Godzilla soundtracks are probably as 'complete' as we'll ever get from Toho and the bonus CDs make very nice additions as well.
