The most monstrous Godzilla soundtrack set of all-time has been revealed.

Waxwork Records has unveiled their new GODZILLA: The Showa Era Soundtracks, 1954-1975 set. The stunning new set features soundtracks from all 15 Showa era Godzilla films inside of a deluxe collector's box. The set is expected to be released in March, 2021 and is now available to pre-order for $450, however, it is unfortunately a U.S. exclusive.

You can view a full list of details and images from the new Waxwork Records Godzilla set below.

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 honored to present a lavish collector’s box set with remastered audio for vinyl, new artwork by Robert Sammelin, eighteen 180 gram colored 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 IfukubeMasaru SatoKunio Miyauchi, and Riichiro Manabe.

Saw this a couple of weeks ago. Very cool collection. I considered it until I got sticker shock! If I could afford this, it would be a definite. Love the presentation, packaging and especially the artwork. Kong looks a bit strange, but overall excellent, and much better imo than the artwork for Criterion's Blu-Ray collection.

I haven't passed on picking this up just yet... Yeah, it's absurdly expensive, but if I only need one kidney...

I’ve learned something interesting about most movie music. Most people refer to Orchestral or Symphonic Music as Classical. Movie music is often Orchestral or Symphonic, so to the general public, therefore it is classical music. Yes, I’m aware not all movie music is “Classical”, but much of it is. Think, Star Wars, Avengers, Mission Impossible, Addams Family, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and many Gojira Films.. I first heard a Modern Orchestral Peice called “The Rite of Spring”, and it made me think of the Big G. I later learned that Akira Ifukube’s music was greatly influenced by this.
