This is a compilation of original soundtrack recordings, by composers Hideakira Sakurai and Kuuihiko Murai, from the legendary 70's Japanese Samurai films series LONE WOLF AND CUB a.k.a. THE BABY CART SERIES. Based on the famous Manga of the same name, this collection of music helps set the tone for the films that have inspired a multitude of filmmakers ranging from John Woo (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 2) to Quentin Tarantino (KILL BILL) and Robert Rodriguez (ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO). The films tell the story of a Father and infant son who wander the Japanese countryside lending their skill as an assassin to help those in need whilst trying to avenge the death of their family and restore honor to their name.

Never before available in North America in any format, this remastered compilation of music from all six LONE WOLF films showcases fascinating, eclectic movie music that combines traditional Japanese stylings with Western, 70's-era motifs. CD Booklet contains production stills and promotional art and features an in-depth look at the LONE WOLF film series and its sensational music.
