Columbia Sound Treasures Series presents one of the holy grail of Japanese Anime original soundtracks (usually going from prices ranges between 300 and 700 euros), finally properly remastered and reissued for everybody to enjoy! Seiji Yokoyama is famous and known for having scored the animes “Captain Harlock” and “Saint Seya”. But as a prolific artist, he has done other somehow more confidential works, and amongst them the soundtrack for “The Tomb Of Dracula”, a 1980 TV anime movie by Toei Animation and based on the comic series developed by Marvel. The pitch : Dracula is messing with the church of Satan and stealing Dolores , the bride to be of the devil himself, falling in love, having a kid with her and trying to deal and escape all his enemies, including the devil, his followers, Frank Drake, Quincy Harker and Rachel Van Helsing (the daughter of Van Helsing) and even vampire-sniffing dog who wears a giant cross around its neck. At one point Dracula loses his powers and has to resort to mugging people so he has enough money to buy a hamburger.The soundtrack is a mysterious and strange combination of baroque, classical, disco and funk tracks which is the trademark and unique style of Seiji Yokoyama. The Theme of “Quincy Harker” reflects perfectly the atmosphere of the record, being laced by both classical baroque elements with a funk groove on some heavy drums. The soundtrack is as crazy as the movie and the 80's. 200 copies are available on a 1LP of 13 tracks including a 30 x 60 color insert.
