REVIEW

January 31, 2004

The title says it all. This is one of many "greatest hits" CD's on this site. This disc focuses on the first Godzilla series of films. If you are new to collecting this music or don't own many of the other CD's, then this is a great CD to start with if you can find it. It's now out of print but can still occasionally be found if you look hard enough.
