GNP Crescendo's Best of Godzilla albums on vinyl LPs exclusively at FYE

Postby mikelcho » Sat May 18, 2019 10:15 am

I was buying my brother Brian's birthday present at my local FYE and found something very interesting: the 1990s GNP Crescendo soundtrack albums The Best of Godzilla: 1954-1975 and The Best of Godzilla: 1984-1995 as vinyl LPs exclusive to their stores!

I'm hoping for exclusive CD versions, though. That would be really great, especially if they corrected the liner notes text error that was on the first page of the second album's front cover/booklet when they were both on CD the first time around.

Who knows? Maybe vinyl LP re-releases of the GNP Crescendo releases of the soundtracks of Godzilla 2000: Millennium and Godzilla vs. Megaguirus? Or (dare we hope) the La-La Land Records releases of the soundtracks of Godzilla: 50th Anniversary Edition and King Kong vs. Godzilla? Or even (wait for it) the Media Blasters/Tokyo Shock release of the soundtrack of Destroy All Monsters (and maybe we'll finally get the Media Blasters/Tokyo Shock release of the soundtrack of Godzilla vs. Megalon that we were promised before, but never got)? Hey, if you're going to dream, dream big here! No...make that gigantic! Or should I say: Gigan-tic?

Again, I'm hoping for exclusive CD versions for all of these.

I made a mistake; this is in the wrong section. Could someone please switch it over to Toho Media for me?

I don't have a record player, but I'd love to snag these. Glad FYE's doing a lot of new Godzilla merch to support the new movie.

I have those original CDs still, and they are great until you get to the part where the Japanese music ends and the guy who put the packages together begins.

I grabbed both of these at my local FYE last week. They go for about $30 each, which seems good to me for a double record set. I'm no expert on records, but they both sound pretty good to me, and it's really cool to have Godzilla accessible on vinyl!

This is very, very cool. Additionally, at my FYE at least, they also had Godzilla hats and a blanket with the poster for Return of Godzilla. I saw these for about $35 at my local FYE. I would have bought them if it weren't for the fact that these are most likely just pressings of the original CDs of the album.

I never had these compilations on CD, so I went ahead and picked these up. They sound pretty good, and I like the use of sound effects between tracks. I have my issues with some of the selections (and omissions -- a whole side of Spacegodzilla cues and no "Echoes of Love"?), but this is probably the cheapest you'll ever find such a range of Godzilla music on vinyl, so I can't really complain.

I looked at my FYE recently and they've got two copies of each album.

They're available on Amazon, I ordered them both and expect them to arrive tomorrow. Pretty excited about them.

Also the Showa set are two pastel green records (sort of like glow in the dark plastic), and the Heisei set is one translucent purple and one pastel green (like the Showa set.)

Would've been color if they were both translucent purple in the Heisei set but I'm not really complaining.

I just found that there's an insert in each album, presumably the liner notes from the booklets in the CDs.

Does anyone know whether or not the mistake at the beginning of the Heisei album booklet's liner notes in the CD is fixed in the LP record's insert?

I can check my LP when I get home. I don't have the old CDs though, what was the mistake in it?

If you look at the opening paragraph in the CD booklet, it just begins mid-way into it. The whole beginning of the paragraph is missing.

Can anyone out there please show a photo of the page that I'm talking about? I think that, in this case, it's better to show you than to tell you.
