There are 7 total discs in this first box set with CD #3 containing the sound track to "King King vs. Godzilla" on 2 discs. The first disc contains the mono version of the soundtrack and the second disc contains the stereo version. All of the soundtracks in this box set have been re-mastered and give improved sound over the now out of print Futureland releases. All the discs also contain some additional bonus tracks not found on the previous discs. In addition the booklets feature new cover pictures. The older sets had the movie posters on the cover. The booklets (in Japanese) seem to be updated with new information and pictures. The track order is also different between the older discs and new ones and in some cases have had two tracks combined and/or the track title changed. In most cases the bonus tracks are either sound effects, movie dialogue or alternate takes.
