#8 – Super Angels OST – Kitty Records

As always, the download link is located near the bottom of the post.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Here at Garbage and Gold we are not content with monotony. This is now the 8th record that has been offered up to the masses on this blog and I have decided to do something a little bit different this time. Don’t worry, an LP’s worth of great music is still headed your way, that much will never change. But being the sole contributor of this blog can be a lonesome affair, so for this post, I have asked some of my best friends to contribute their creative talents to the blog.

Front Cover

The LP that we are presenting today is called Japanese Super Angels, a musical record promising “120% Exciting Sounds”, “Fighting Stereo Recording” and “360 Degree Sound”. The songs contained are individualized Wrestler Theme Songs for fans of Women’s Wrestling All Japan or The Super Angels in the 1980s and 90s. It is a beautiful picture disc record that caught my eye one day misfiled in the Sound Effects section at Amoeba Music (Hollywood). I took it home expecting wrestling sound effects, I was pleasantly surprised. This record contains some of the grooviest 80s Rock-Jazz-Funk-Synth-Pop-Nintendo-Fusion jams that I have ever come across. They are driving, motivational and inspiring, perfect for the adolescent wrestling fans that this record was probably targeted toward. They are catchy as the flu, yet, I couldn’t find any other copies or digital versions of these songs anywhere! This is a perfect example of the type of record that I started this blog for. A hidden gem. Someone’s garbage sold for a couple dollars has become this record collector’s gold. When you download below, you can share my plunder. Go ahead, download it now. Throw it on. Then continue reading, we have a lot of good stuff for you!

Picture Disc

As I mentioned before, we have some great guest-writers that have contributed to this post. About half of the wrestlers profiled on this record have a short piece that accompany their information. In some cases this piece is a bio, in others the writers have taken their creative liberties to truly capture the essence of these modern gladiators.  Please take the time to download and read these pieces. The writers have worked hard on them so that you could get an extra laugh/cry as you enjoy this music, so please feel free to do so. I offer a sincere thank-you to these writers for taking the time to make this a better post. Further gratitude goes out to reddit users: EasternNinja (for so much information and real character bios) and dxn126 (for the song titles). I hope that you all enjoy the multimedia.

  1. Hey, I can’t thank you enough for posting this! I was just recently at the Miami Art Museum where they were hosting an exhibition called “The Record” which comprised of art centered around the theme of, well, records. In the lobby, they had turntables next to bins of records selected from the artists featured in the main exhibit. I saw this in Taiyo Kimura’s bin, and was obviously quite intrigued by the cover/disc art, so I gave it a quick listen and was impressed! I figured it would be so ridiculously obscure that I wouldn’t be able to find anything more than a listing on a website posting it’s basic info and maybe a picture. Still, I wrote down the catalog number to look it up. What do you know, I found it here! So again, big thanks for posting this, I love it. Have you got any other Japanese records (obscure or otherwise)?

    • You’re kidding me! I live in Miami and never made it out to the exhibition. I heard it was great. I can’t believe there was another copy of this record there. I’m glad that you came upon my blog. While I am a lover of Japanese culture, I don’t have much as far as Japanese records go. I have a bunch of Isao Tomita records, a handful of Takeshi Terauchi records, a traditional Japanese music 10″ and a 45 of some 60s Japanese vocalist. I’m working on my next post, but if you are interested in hearing any of these in the mean time I might be able to put it up for you. Let me know.

      • Hey, sorry I never noticed your post until now, I assumed I’d get an email notification or something. Yeah, the Tomita stuff is easy to find, so if you could upload anything you can but those, that’d be awesome! There’s a lot of great stuff like that which isn’t available on the net yet.

        Funny to hear you live in Miami, though. I assume you picked your copy of this up at Sweat Records? Or was it Radio-Active in Ft. Lauderdale? Myself, I live in Delray Beach, so I don’t make trips too often…

        Anyway, shoot me an email later, since I probably can’t keep checking this site for replies too often.

  2. This is absolutely epic. Thankyou for making this
    available 😀
