The Waxwork Godzilla: The Showa Era Soundtracks (1954-1975) has arrived and its awesome! One week ago, Waxwork Records had a “Surprise Flash Sale” slashing the price of the “Godzilla: The Showa Era Soundtracks, 1954-1975.” The company slashed the retail price of $450 to $315, saving $135! And I could no longer look away because of the price tag. I snatched it up and I’m so glad I did. What a wonderful record set fitting for the King!
Waxwork in collaboration with Toho has remastered all fifteen Godzilla Showa-Era soundtracks for vinyl. They are reproduced on eighteen 180-gram colored-vinyl discs. Each is protected with heavyweight matte laminate coated album jackets with gorgeous illustrations by Robert Sammelin. The albums are set in a beautiful storage box with a fold-down magnetic flap. A cool Godzilla turntable slipmat is included. Below are the awesome covers and other items in the set.
This weighty set ships in well-protected reinforced box with “fragile” written all over it. Inside the box set is wrapped in bubble wrap. I upgraded my turntable and speakers for this worthy album set. I hear details of the tracks I have not heard from my Godzilla CD/mp3 collection. Check out the first track of Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla (1974).
The package design, illustrations, and sound are fantastic! I highly recommend the Waxwork Godzilla Showa Era Soundtracks. You won’t be disappointed, especially if you love the sound and experience of vinyl records. It’s a very retro thing to do. You can find the set on WaxWorkRecords.com, Amazon.com, and other online shops.
