This is a live CD in Stereo by Masaru Satoh. Mr. Satoh has probably done the 2nd most Godzilla music (most having been done by Akira Ifukube). Godzilla fans will find nothing recognizable here but the disc is a good listen anyway. Mr. Satoh has done film music for many Japanese films over the years and this is a good representation of his non Godzilla work. Overall, if you close your eyes, this CD gives you the feeling of being at a symphony concert and the music here is well done. Most of the music on this CD could be described as being in a mellow type vein without any of the aggressive march music you'd find on an Akira Ifukube album.
I really enjoyed this CD and will certainly give it many more plays. My copy is a CDR as this CD I'm told is quite hard to find. I'm told it was a special disc printed up in limited quantities for Masaru Satoh's fans.
