Soundtrack to the very first film animated by Studio Ghibli, officially reissued! Once again frequent Ghibli-collaborator Joe Hisaishi is at the helm, crafting captivating pieces that perfectly capture Sheeta and Pazu's world of magic and wonder. The entire 14 track suite is presented here in its entirety on this first ever vinyl reissue, just like the original 1986 pressing. This is the music exactly as you've heard it in the film, and remains as timeless and imaginative as ever. Limited edition Japanese import, complete with gatefold jacket featuring an awesome illustration of the Tiger Moth airship, obi strip, and duplicate cel featuring the film's main protagonists Pazu and Sheeta. Recommended.
