Goldsmith's "Raggedy Man" has to be somewhat scares.........Anyone have a copy?

Bought when first came out. Would have to dig it out to see number. Not one of my most played Goldsmith.

Scarcity and high prices of CDs have nothing to do with quality of music.


"The Serpent and the Rainbow" -- perfectly fine score, but so totally NOT worth more than $20 under ANY circumstances.


Have to disagree with that one. I don't think it warrants the extreme high prices it seems to go for but id pay a lot more than $20 for it. Its a brilliant score and highly listenable...for my money much better than THE TERMINATOR. Thats why I've never been tempted to part with it, even when I've been hard up.

My choice would be:

- Centurion (Ilan Eshkeri)
- El Cid - La leyenda (Oscar Araujo)
- Transporter II (Alexandre Azaria)
- La Revolution francaise (Georges Delerue)
- Tour du monde tour du ciel (Georges Delerue)
- Obsession (Herrmann)
- Concert suites (Herrmann)
- Under the volcano (North)
- The dead (North)

To name only a few

For instance, La Revolution Fran├žaise, an okay score, is going for more than 400.00$ at SAE. For 20.00$ one could easily obtain two better scores from the same composer.

Must be a sign of the economic climate but I remember SAE selling a copy of La Revolution Francaise a few years ago for $600+. Or maybe they've just found it difficult to sell at such a high price.

The most I ever paid for a cd was $200 for the original edition of Body Heat. I bought it back in 1994 (yes there were speculators already back then), so got to enjoy it for 18 years until FSM put out the 2 disc set. To me, it was worth it as I think it's one of Barry's best.

I agree regarding OBSESSION and BERNARD HERRMANN: THE CONCERT SUITES.

I used to have copies of the original vinyl and CD releases of BODY HEAT, but finally unloaded them when FSM released the two-disc set last year.

A copy of the complete 2-disc FYC of "Rise of the Guardians" by Alexandre Desplat went for $600 on eBay today. Very few were made because it never got nominated for an Oscar, so the discs only went out to the music department and not to the whole body of Academy voters, which happens if there's a nomination.

Same thing happened with the 2-disc FYC of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo", which has both film score collectors and NIN collectors driving its price up.
