This CD released in 1991 brings us the essential music from three different movies: "Godzilla vs King Kong", "Mothra" and "Rodan". The music on this CD is among my favorites. This music shows up in later Futureland CD releases in expanded form with each movie getting a full disc of it's own. You get just enough music on these CD's to wet your appetite without countless repetition of tracks.
Each of the 10 volumes in this CD series gives slighly more or less than an hour of music. Since they were released back in 1991 there is a very good chance they are now out of print and hard to find. You may still occasionally run into them on eBay or other auction sites and may even run across a copy elsewhere. They are well worth picking up if you don't already have other CD's with this music on them or are a completist as many of us are.
