The Tale of Osaka Castle

This is my first soundtrack post. I usually chop and compile them, but not this time. So I took my usual shot in the dark in search of some Shaw, but to no avail. Akira Ifukube's work is consistently good, so even if it wasn't what I was looking for I can't complain. I'm starting to develop a taste for this sort of music anyway. It's not quite as "heavy" as his monster music, but it makes for good background when I'm doing some art.

You're going to have to forgive my MP3 tags. I complained quite a bit about sellers who say nothing about these CDs. Well now that I've tried their shoes on, their really isn't much to say because I don't know Japanese. I translated some tracks if it made sense I saved it, but most of them are still in Japanese (or squares). For anyone who's willing, here is the Album Info.

The Tale of Osaka Castle

Don't squint too hard at these covers. The full sizes have been included in the rar. Tracks 33-49 are bonus tracks. Some of this stuff would have fit right in as Shaw. It boggles me why they chose what they chose to "sample." Some movies would have been excellent if you ask me... like "Secret of the Telegian" and "Navajoe Joe." And like I said, I still have some things in the works. Enjoy.

You made my day! Thanks. I have heard recently that there's a CD or LP for the series out there. I couldn't find anything because I didn't have the full name. Now, even with the full name it's still hard to find any info, but a mutual friend is looking into it.

Even better. Thanks!

I don't want to come off as being a jerk, but I never did retag these. So many people have downloaded the file already, I doubt anyone is going to re-download it just for updated tags.
Instead I'll point everyone to my mp3 tagger of choice MP3 Tag. (surprised by the name huh?)
