Ratings & Reviews
An Enthusiastic Recommendation
I've actually owned this album on CD for many years now (in fact I have four different Nausicaa CDs from when I was stationed in Misawa, Japan; I listen to all of them). This vinyl album does have a much nicer cover; I would be interested to learn if it also has the profile that was in the original CD insert (accompanied by some lovely art by Mr. Miyazaki; unfortunately the piece is in Japanese). I love Joe Hisiasi's original score and would enthusiastically recommend it over the reworked music for the later American dub.
