Soundtrack to DB Movie #1

Post by jpranevich » Tue Apr 11, 2017 11:09 pm

I am just making it to DB Movie #1 as I watch all of DB in order (between episodes 43 and 44!) and I am curious about a movie soundtrack for this one. I know there was none officially released, but is the BGM and such available in other collections?

(Also, I am very disappointed that they did not re-animate the opening, instead re-using the existing TV opening. With the rest of the movie being nicer resolution on FunimationNow, it really stood out.)

I've not come across it in other collections, but I may be greatly mistaken. If anything, I hope this helps. :)

I think the OP is talking about DragonBall (not Z) movie 1.

There's never been anything close to a complete release, but a teensy tiny part of the "Legend of Shen Long" score is available on the 5-CD Daizenshuu set. For reference, you can look at my BGM documentation (scroll down past episode 43 for the first movie) to see what's officially released and what isn't (spoiler: going by duration, only a third of the movie's score is released. Going by number of cues, the proportion of unreleased to released is horrifying).

However, Zestanor's done quite an amazing job reconstructing an isolated DB soundtrack. He did what he could for this movie - meaning some cues still have sound effects and part of the FUNi dub's vocal track - but that's still probably the best that could be done. You'll want to take a look at this post (uncover the spoiler for M2XX - that's the recording session for DB movie 1).
BGM forever! If only more people paid attention to it... well, I intend to change that.

Does anybody know what's going on with Zestanor? :shock: He is inactive since January 16th...

I think all the tracks are on YouTube on the brilliant PopaLarge's channel. I'd suggest checking that out.

"My opinion of Norihito's Sumitomo's new score is... well, very mixed. The stuff that's good is pretty darn good, but the stuff that's bad makes elevator music sound like Jerry freaking Goldsmith." -Kenisu
