REVIEW
June 5, 2000

If I spoke fluent Japanese I might have enjoyed this disc.
I won this CD on an eBay auction and knew nothing about
it prior to winning. The CD was listed as Mothra '61 (Remake).
The CD is mainly made up of what sounds like a play version
of Mothra. You have a Japanese narrator and then what sounds
like dialogue and sound effects on most tracks.

The only music tracks are # 1, 2, 6 & 9. Tracks # 4 & 7 have
some background music.

Unless you speak Japanese fluently, I can only recommend this
CD to completists if you can find it.
