    As I thought that Finders Keepers Records should be given more credit and love for all the great music they unearth than the hate that is spread in the comments below, I decided to contact label boss and creative wizard mr. Andy Votel.
    Here is an inside on the creation of this release: “The music is by our friend Masahiko Sato (and his wife). The main theme is not anything to do with him. It is a very different type of music by a very famous saccharine sweet TV composer. Sato and Eiichi Yamamoto we’re not fans of this music… but the distributors demanded it. He was sad that they used that theme at the last minute. Obviously Sato couldn’t give us the rights to the music that wasn’t his.”
    For those who are still not satisfied: “The main theme is quite easy to find on Japanese 45 and compilation LPs.”
    In the meantime I’m looking forward to the next FK release, especially the limited edition ones. Yeah I now you think they are overpriced, but that’s another story. 😎

      Finders Keepers really fucked this one up. The omission of the opening and closing themes from this album is tragic, asinine, pointless and downright disrespectful to the legacy of this film. Aside from just being really great songs, the main themes are so iconic that I feel you can hardly call this the soundtrack to Belladonna of Sadness without them. Seems more to me like Finders Keepers is just exploiting the name of the film to sell a Masahiko Sato record. I hope a more competent label is able to give this gem the proper reissue that it deserves one day.

        My copy sounds great and the vinyl is thick. Not at all thin! There are some distortion that can be heard when certain instruments are playing but it’s tolerable. Great soundtrack!!

          i'm afraid, the re issue sounds like a vinyl rip, there's clearly a background noise on each tracks - so FK did you mastered from the original tape or what ?.... thanks

            They left off the main theme and main theme (reprise), why? The main theme is heard more than six times thought out the movie, and is an integral part of the story with 2 different versions of the theme (that were omitted from this reissue). Both are very erotic and sensuous themes sung by Mayumi Tachibana. That's like releasing "The Good The Bad And The Ugly" without the Main Theme from "The Good The Bad And The Ugly".

              the vinyl is so thin, flexi-disc like! That being said, it does sound great!
