I bought a copy of VALKYRIE in the used bin yesterday, for eight bucks. Someone must've really HATED this disc! (I actually like it quite a bit.)

Babylon 5:And The Rock Cried Out, No Hiding Place - 75c.

75 cents? Wasn't taht one only released with a magazine or video game or something?

Not sure. I picjked it up when I was in London. It was priced at 50 pence. I'm guessing that would be about 75c here.

I travel occasionally for my job, and when I do I try to stop into the local thrift stores and used cd stores looking for a deal. Last week in Central Kentucky I got lucky.

From the $1 clearance bin in Half Price Books:

Michael Kamen Last Action Hero
Basil Poledouris Mas Musica! (Starship Troopers)
Edward Shearmur Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
Laurence Rosenthal Logan's Run (tv) (this takes the sting out of missing Meteor)
Alan Silvestri The Abyss
James Horner The Mask of Zorro
Eric Serra The Messenger
Jerry Goldsmith Basic Instinct
John Ottoman Superman Returns
John Debney The Passion of Christ
John Williams Minority Report
Harry Lubin One Step Beyond
various Amazing Stories One (intrada)
various Amazing Stories (varese)
various Monsterous Movie Music
various More Monsterous Movie Music
various Sci-Fi's Greatest Hits vol.2 The Dark Side
various Sci-Fi's Greatest Hits vol.3 The Uninvited
various Return of Cult Fiction

Not all of these are my taste in ost, but for a buck I couldn’t go wrong and give them a try. I also picked up OHM: early gurus of electronic music 3cd+1dvd set ($15) and the book, Album Cover Art of Soundtracks ($10).

From a local thrift store I picked up these two for $2.5. These seemed expensive after spending a dollar earlier in the week.

John Powell I am Sam
Randy Newman Pleasantville
Patrick Doyle Henry V


Now THOSE are deals! Even I - in my self-approved "soundtrack celibacy" would have taken the plunge on some of those! Congrats.

Recently snapped up at a local used CD/DVD store in Boston...

-Calendar Girls (Patrick Doyle) for $2

Nice, pleasant score in that melodic Doyle style, but man, only 15 minutes? frown Guess I got my money's worth...

-Captain Corelli's Mandolin (Stephen Warbeck) for $2

I really like Warbeck's Shakespeare In Love (and Quills has it's pleasures), but this one is really, really lovely and melodic.

-Dying Young (James Newton Howard) for $3

Howard in his mellow, folksy early 90's "travelogue" style (see also The Man In The Moon), augmented by Kenny G's nice solos. I have't listened to this since I had this on cassette back in the day, so it's nice to have it on CD finally (albiet with a pretty substantial, ugly scratch on the back which at lease doesn't affect the playing).

A heads up, if you are interested in any of the Call Of Duty (video games) scores, the best way to get them is to look for the video game with the bonus soundtrack included. I have been looking for Call Of Duty 3, by Joel Goldsmith and found one on-line for $3.99, received it today and it is great, highly recommended. I have been watching the score go for $30+ for several months, is a treasure at $3.99!!

Does anyone need Call Of Duty 3 for XBOX 360?
We do not have an XBOX, I bought it for the score disc?

I also have on order Call Of Duty 2 (PC version), with a bonus soundtrack CD of Revell's music.

Missed out on a recent Call Of Duty CD of Giacchino's music, still looking for that one.

I once found a copy of "The Wild Side Of Henry Mancini" on the Challenge label for 50 cents.

Issued in the early 60's, the recording was released as a 1000 copy white label promo. It's a follow up to the "Touch Of Evil" soundtrack issued a few years earlier on the same label with a slight track variation. Citadel combined the two LP's for their early 80's release of the score.

Years ago, when I was a kid (must have been around 1971) my father and I were at a discount store. There was a bin of discount vinyl for ten cents each. My father bought about 15 sealed copies of "Rosemary's Baby" on Dot and gave everyone a copy for Christmas.

It's funny, we were all listening to the score from "Rosemary's Baby" by Christopher Komeda for quite some time. To this very day I still own my copy as well as two others still sealed.

I bought the CD of "Maverick" (Randy Newman), brand new at Odd Lots about eight years ago for $1.99.

Found a $2 copy of the Stromberg-Morgan reconstruction/recording of Waxman's "Objective, Burma!" yesterday. I'm still on cold turkey, but for $2 I had a momentary relapse. (I'm fine now, by the way.)

I think one of the most "spectacular finds" in my experience was when one of the local (classical label) distributors was closing down, and they invited me along to their warehouse to help myself to whatever I wanted. (Whatever was left would be going into receivership.) I had been writing reviews for their CDs for the past couple of years, so they knew me quite well and were grateful for the support I'd given them. As I recall, I picked out about 40 discs for myself - and another 200 more to resell at the symphony orchestra's merchandise shop.

just got a mint condition Batman Forever by Elliot Goldenthal for $5.98. I know some people got the wrong score because the disc inside was the the soundtrack version. Thankfully it was the proper Goldenthal disc. Awesome score.
