For the hardcore collectors who are ready to spend $500+ to own a fine collectible.

Waxwork Records will release a prestigious limited 18xLP set of the Godzilla Soundtrack from the Showa Era (1954-1975)
A very pretty set.

What an unfortunate turn of events. A CD release of all this content would have moved entire oceans. Heck, I'll even take a digital release to enjoy this. 2021 sure started with a disappointment in the film score department for sure.

Surely all of these soundtracks are already available in digital format, remastered and complete or better.

Is that the 50th Anniversary release of which there are 6 separate boxes? SAE has them for $130 each (ouch).

Note the artwork looks a LOT like the art used for the 2019 Criterion Collection Blu-ray set of these films. This would make this an awesome companion set to that release -- if only it were more affordable...

And grasped the essence of Godzilla the "art" director on this project hasn't. Why the comic book style "art"? Ugly it is.

In any case, the Godzilla Perfect Soundtrack Collection have not, thus far, been beat. However, it would be nice to make comprehensive - and somewhat affordable - sets for those who can't afford the original Toho sets.

It's a handsome set, clearly aimed at the vinyl diehards (and I mean that in the positive sense of the word).
The Showa Era is already well served on CD, depending on whether or not the Perfect Collection is within the G fan's financial grasp.
The art design, I could take it or leave it.
But for anyone that is turned on by this set, I'm happy for them.

The Godzilla geek in me would love these but I’m more than happy with the incredible ‘perfect collection’ box sets that Ark Square sells, as has been mentioned. I can’t imagine them being beaten on the music front.

Why would ANYONE want this? Seriously. They're all taken from the CD masters, so what's the allure? They have no bonus material and they'll sound no different to the CD releases. The CD box sets are amazing - I have all of them. People are nutty.

This is clearly for die hard collectors who are seeking the rare item.
In this matter, the music is less the appeal than the design of the packaging.

Meanwhile there's a thread with folks saying the Herrmann At Fox CD Box isn't worth anything because half of it has been re-released and who cares about the rest because there are earlier, inferior or partial releases. You don't have to be a "die hard collector" to see the cup is half-full and the Box is more than a collector's item. Anyway, my point being that there's just no pleasing people. They want the latest, the best, then they want the least, the worst. Suddenly the music contents doesn't matter. There's no predicting what is "collectible" anymore. But I digress...
As for vinyl buyers, I understand the appeal of the tactile and artwork, but it's clearly a tradeoff in terms of music contents, sound quality and convenience. It's hard not to remember those drawbacks. Either way, it's a personal lifestyle choice and I suppose neither is right or wrong.

Bruce, maybe it's my eyes going wonky, but I'll be buggered if I can see anything on the product page that says the LP's are pressed from the CD masters.
Is that info somewhere else?

How about some CDs for those of us living in 2021...?

Why are there so many people here jumping on the occasion to trash anything LP?
The subject of this thread is about a label specialized in limited prestigious LP release for collectors releasing a new item. It's pretty obvious the CD equivalent won't be available from them. Plus, as said earlier, all these soundtracks are already available on CD.
So, dear LP haters/trolls, chill out, live and let live.

If they're actually playing the vinyl, then I would think it's about the experience, the ritual, not about collecting additional music. Even with digital music, I'm more apt to play a lossless CD than a cdr with a million mp3. You need a boundary to delineate what a collection is. Call it "portion control."

steffromuk, you did your best with the topic title and post. I understood what you meant. It's not debut music, it's for vinyl buyers. They don't even have to be "die hard collectors," which is probably a meaningless category when folks here consider the Herrmann Box worthless. It's like the various antique markets bottoming out because Generation XYZ doesn't value relics of the past. But maybe like vinyl, there will be a resurgence some day.

A set of covers for the iTunes library I have made. Nice set. Nice covers. Used the original Japanese posters I have. Find them here you can:
