Waxwork Records is proud to present GODZILLA: The Showa Era Soundtracks, 1954-1975. Collected for the very first time are all fifteen Godzilla film soundtracks from Japan’s Showa era in a prestigious box set showcasing the groundbreaking music from the iconic giant monster films. In collaboration with Toho, Waxwork is honoured to present a lavish collector’s box set with remastered audio for vinyl, new artwork by Robert Sammelin, eighteen 180 gram coloured vinyl discs, heavyweight matte laminate coated album jackets, an LP storage box with a fold-down magnetic flap featuring an album cover glossary, a turntable slipmat, all housed within a slipcase box with matte satin laminate coating. In 1954, Godzilla clawed its way from the sea and changed cinema forever.

It presented a cultural shift and altered how movie-goers around the world would absorb entertainment. It would go on to spawn fourteen beloved sequels during the historic Showa era, introduced terrifying foes and lovable allies, created lifelong fans, and inspired filmmakers, artists, and storytellers for generations to follow. Like an unleashed Kaiju, Waxwork is excited to stomp our way further into the Monsterverse with this landmark box set that collects nearly all of the original Godzilla film soundtracks on vinyl for the very first time and featuring the works of composers Akira Ifukube, Masaru Sato, Kunio Miyauchi, and Riichiro Manabe.

Don't usually do product reviews but prompted by Zavvi, and because this product was a significant outlay of funds, the cost may dissuade some folks of taking the plunge. First off, I'm a Gen Xer and grew up on badly dubbed Saturday morning Godzilla movies, and vinyl records, so I'm biased. There are few things even today that still blow my mind like Godzilla and Led Zep. So, even though I don't currently have a turntable (stop guffawing) I could not pass this set up, if only for the rocking new artwork and the colored vinyl. That these swirling rainbow platters contain the Showa era movie soundtracks is the definition of awesome, regardless if one ever spins them (which I will, eventually). The artwork is killer. Even the color of each album uncannily reflects the very soul of each movie (Hedorah flick is appropriately sludge colored, Mothra bright as a sunflower). Suffice it to say somebody was imbued with enough passion and love for the Big G to produce this epic labor of love, which surpassed any of the high expectations I already had. Even my brother, who has devolved into a "lossless streaming only" zombie, blurted a single word when I opened this box - "WOW". If I were Jeff Bezos - or preferably Jimmy Page - I would buy two of these sets, and have all the artwork and all the vinyl individually framed and displayed on my giant Godzilla Wall of Awesomeness while spinning the other set loud enough for Jimmy to hear in his castle right across from my new McMansion. Plus it comes with a freakoid Godzilla turntable mat!! - just sayin. Hope that helped somebody pull the trigger...
