REVIEW

Here we have a disc made up of 10 tracks that are long suites of music. The first five tracks are familiar movies while I have never heard of the last five. Track # 3 from "The H-Man" is very jazz club sounding. Of course there were scenes in the movie shot in a jazz type club. Track # 5 has the inane song song by the passengers on the boat as part of this suite. Track # 7 contains a male vocal.

Track 6 - GOKE, BODYSNATCHER FROM HELL (KYUKETSUKI GOKEMIDORO)
1968, dir Hajime Sato (Shochiku)
A bloodsucking space virus infects survivors of a plane crash.

Track 7 - CREST OF THE WOLF (OKAMI NO MONSHO)
Sep 1 1973, 78m, dir Masashi Matsumoto (Toho)
Combines the high school boy gang and werewolf genres. A shaggy, crude wolfman.

Track 8 - WOLF GUY : RAGING WOLF MAN (URUFU GAI: MOERO OKAMI OTOKO)
1975, 86m, dir Kazuhiko Yamaguchi (Toei)
By this time Sonny Chiba was famous as The Streetfighter, and scarcely needed makeup to look bestial. This one has Chiba as a werewolf superhero.

1993, dir Sato Haraguchi
Cyborgs left over from a WWII project are revived in the present.
