Unlike the Futureland, TYCY-5637-41, 5 CD box set on this site that covers parts of most of Akira Kurosawa's films, Toho Music has released several box sets of music in Akira Kurosawa's films that are supposed to contain complete (or as complete as they can make them) soundtracks to each of his films. Three sets have now been released so far and I don't know of plans for any more. The first set Film Music of Akira Kurosawa - Vol. 1 and Film Music of Akira Kurosawa - Vol. 2 are also on this site. Volumes 1 & 2 contain 6 CD's while this third volume contains eight discs. Both AK-0012 (Kagemusha) and AK-0013 (RAN) contain 2 discs in a slim double case so that this volume is the same size and shape as the other two. The movies covered in this set are: DODES' KADEN, DERSU UZALA, KAGEMUSHA, RAN, DREAMS, RHAPSODY IN AUGUST, MADADAYO and the bonus disc AKS-4 called BEFORE "SEVEN SAMURAI".
If you are a fan of the music in Kurosawa's films, I highly recommend these box sets and suggest you grab them while you can because I have a feeling they won't be available for long. I bought my copies from Ark Soundtrack Square at: http://www.arksquare.com. I have dealt with this company many times now and have been very satisfied with their service and quick delivery.
