King Kong Escapes Soundtrack On Preorder At Waxwork Records

Today, King Kong Escapes continues the kaiju score releases from Waxwork Records, as the complete score is available for preorder. Done by composer Akira Ifukube, the score is presented on a 180 gram "Element X" green vinyl disc. It has been a really long time since I have seen this film, but I do remember when I was a kid liking it. This is the first time the score has been released outside of Japan. The thing that really sells this vinyl is the sick jacket artwork by Ross Murray. Check it out below.
