When I ordered this CD from Japan, it's title was listed as: "Godzilla, Godzilla, Godzilla, Godzilla & Godzilla" but when I received it the title on the CD said "Godzilla Zoro Zoro". The title is also listed the same way on Deodeo. All tracks except # 1, 2 & 11 are in stereo.
What this CD seems to be are various artists interpretations of several of Akira Ifukube's "Godzilla" themes. Some are done very well and would hold up well under repeated listening's. Some tracks are done in a jazz style and most tracks are recognizable while a few will have you wondering where this music came from. Overall this is a pleasant listen with several outstandingly good tracks.
This additional information is listed on the CD Japan web site for this CD:
This Godzilla music compilation includes a variety of Godzilla music arranged in different styles such as a Jazz track by Jack Walrath who's a well known Godzilla Otaku, or a Shakuhachi version, or a fusion number by Yajuoukoku, and so forth.
