"Ultraman Taro" was one of the only early Ultraman series that did not feature music composed by Tohru Fuyuki. The songs were written by Makoto Kawaguchi, and the instrumental ("background") music was composed by Masanobu Higure. Higure's unusual music fit better the bizarre stories and outlandish outfits of Taro than Fuyuki's more serious fare.
"Ultra Sound Dendo Series" was released in 2006 in conjunction with the 40th Anniversary of Ultraman. The soundtrack features a few tracks that were not released in the previous VAP record. These tracks are an extended version of the title song, a vocal version of "6 Ultra Brothers," and the song "The Ballad of Mother of Ultra."
The "Ultra Dendo Sound Series" has been digitally remastered, and the sound quality does seem sharper to my untrained ears. This is a solid collection of music from the series and a nice replacement for the VAP release.
