REVIEW

March 14, 2010

The title says it all. While many of the songs here have been on the what seems like the millions of Peanuts re-issues, there truly are some things here I haven't seen or heard before. Tracks 20 & 21 are taken from songs they did for commercials in Japan. There are several other tracks that seem to be finding the light of day for the first time. If you enjoy the music of this dynamic duo then pick up this package. It includes everyone's favorites from the "Mothra" films plus many other great tracks. This CD is just one of many fiftieth anniversary album releases and re-issues from The Peanuts. At $22.96 from CD Japan it's a great value.
