Product Description

OUT OF PRINT!



Available for the first time, this is the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to the classic 1954 film GODZILLA, featuring the complete score by famed composer Akira Ifukube, (who is celebrating his 90 th birthday this year).

Produced in association with Toho Studios, this commemorative 50 th Anniversary Edition Soundtrack is a handsome companion to the restored original film, currently playing in theaters across the nation in limited engagements.

Rest in Peace, Akira Ifukube
(1914-2006)

Ifukube’s timeless orchestral score evokes all the terror and majesty of that towering creature cherished around the world. Newly remastered with bonus tracks (cues edited as they appeared in the film), the CD includes a knockout collectors’ booklet featuring exclusive artwork and in-depth liner notes.

Unlike tracks on previous Japanese versions, this release does not have dialogue or the baby cry mixed in with the score.
