Captain Ultra 1967 Soundtrack LP


Music and Sound effects from Toei's 1967 tokusatsu series Captain Ultra, music composed by Isao Tomita. Although Toei had some great shows in the seventies(including Kikaida & Robot Detective), I'm more of a fan of their Sixties output(Devil Boy, Giant Robo, Masked Ninja Akakage). I included a Youtube clip from episode three below. Hirohisa Nakata, the actor who portrayed the good Captain, also appeared in Toei's must-see feature film Golden Bat alongside Sonny Chiba.

Hmmph. Since the clip I chose isn't working, please click on one of the thumbnails within, it will lead you to a whole new world of whimsy and wonder...

Hi prof. Grewbeard,

I enjoy your Blog. Have you been into this theme for a while?

Much of it reminds me of my early late night TV years. :)
