Got this one today and I think with 30 dollars it was reasonably priced.

Original Composers Promo OST of BLUE THUNDER. I had it on Vinyl and loved it (still do) back in the eighties. Here are a few mouthwatering images.


Congratulations, you bought a bootleg.

http://www.soundtrackcollector.com/titl ... ue+Thunder
A CD can be printed up by an official printing press with professionally made artwork and the whole night yards, and still be an illegal release. For example, the people at Southern Cross did not correctly pay the licensing fees for Alex North's Dragonslayer, meaning that CD - professionally printed, sold by legitimate retailers - is a bootleg.

Ok, here we have a few pictures to proof it is no bootleg. I got your point Jay, but this was not the case. It was not on the market. It was not meant for sale and they didn't not clear the rights properly. The CD was made as a composers promo not licensed for sale. That itself doesn't proof a thing but since everything on this CD is correct, it is sure to say that this is not a bootleg.

The CD Code is ON the CD mirrored ABRCD-01, ABR stands for Arthur B. Rubinstein.

Multi-page booklet, "Not for Sale etc"

THE PLOT THICKENS!:

I have a copy of the BLUE THUNDER Promo.

I've always believed that this was a genuine release,
but my copy has some definte anomolies, against the copy pictured above:

My copy has some slightly different printing, typeface, and typeface size, than the one above,
and it doesn't have the silver printing - on mine it's either grey, or white.

Also, the disc physically stops playing, a couple of seconds too early, on the last track.

If I didn't know any better?, i'd suggest that my copy annoyingly is actually a boot version!. :evil:


Neil, if it does not have the above "features" I guess you really catched a bootleg...Hope it sounds good though ;-)

FYC promotional disc of Catch Me If You Can (John Williams)

Early US Miramax promotional disc of Life Is Beautiful (Nicola Piovani) with a different cover design than the later US release. This one I'm happy to find as the film and score is a personal favorite.

$1.00 US currency each.

Regarding the BLUE THUNDER Super Tracks promo CD, there are actually two different pressings. Check out this post by Stephen Lister on the FSM board:

I picked this up recently, even though I have the original BLUE THUNDER promo from a few years back. I love the score and wanted a spare copy, and it's a nice price. This recent release is a legit pressed CD, and sounds exactly like the original.

There are a couple of cosmetic differences in the packaging. The composer's name is much smaller on the spine of the new one. And the serial number on the inner ring of the CD is different. So it's not from exactly the same batch as the original hard-to-find pressing.

Went to my favorite junk store earlier today and found this Varese Sarabande CD for $2.00 US currency...

Wow...this baby goes for $30 all the time on eBay. Good find. Trying to think what my biggest scores are.

Definitely a new copy of "Logan's Run" (FSM release) for $8
The "Twister" and "Speed" scores at Goodwill for $2 or $3
Halloween 25th Anniversary (Varese), new for $5
Transformers (Steve Jablonsky) score for $3

There's a CD store out my way that has a "Buy 6 CDs for $10" deal and through that, I've scored.
Witches of Eastwick (collector's Choice) for $1.60
Chronicles of Sarah Conner (la La Land) for $1.60
Scrooge for $1.60
Aliens (Varese) for $1.50
Godzilla (Concorde Bootleg) for $1

I only have a year and a half of picking behind me so nothing huge to report. Though I did win a mint copy John Williams' Dracula score (Varese Sarabande) off eBay the other day for $20. I don't think I've ever seen it go lower than $30 so that felt pretty good.

My favorite past time since my early teen years, scrounging through bins and piles of discarded music. Not so much vinyl being unearthed these days although I've had some recent luck with CDs. Pre-internet, I considered myself sort of an audio archivist/preservasionist by locating 33/45/78 rpm recordings, carefully cleaning the vinyl and bringing back to life a piece of wax that hadn't been under a stylus for years if not decades.

I think these LPs are definately worthy of mention...

Stairway Of The Stars 1966 (Guest Conductor, Alfred Newman)
Stairway Of The Stars 1969 (Guest Conductor, Ferde Grofe)
Stairway Of The Stars 1971 (Guest Conductor, Nelson Riddle)

Producted by the Santa Monica, California Unified School. An annual concert back in the day of junior high school bands with guest conductors. Now I'm wondering what others are floating around out there in vinyl limbo... Miklos Rozsa, Elmer Bernstein... maybe Jerry Goldsmith conducting those little sob's???

$1.00 each/LPs in mint condition and the Nelson Riddle has the original shrink wrap.

Actually, some guy on ebay has one of this series conducted by Ernest Gold. And he wants like $100.00 for it. Talk about sobs.

Just received the 2004 Varèse edition of THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN in perfectly mint condition. No find, mere eBay. 5€ (≈ $6.50) all inclusive. I'm happy. :)

It would be really interesting if there's a young David or Thomas Newman somewhere in the orchestra. The LP notes have no info about the performers.

Yup, I can verify that the Ernest Gold LP "Stairway of the Stars" (1964) is about to end on ebay. Mr Gold conducts the Santa Monica Unified School District orchestra and choruses in The Exodus Song and Mad, Mad World Waltz. I'd like to hear it. $100 bucks is steep. I'd also like to to get a copy of "Good Luck, Mrs Wyckoff" on vinyl without being bled for it.

And then I think I'll have everything on Gold. On vinyl.

I watched Good Luck Miss Wykoff LP sell for $9.99 on ebay a few years ago. I remember because I was bidding on The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea in the same auction and was outbid by the guy who also won the Ernest Gold score, he was the only bidder on that one. I bought a copy in the early 80's at a place in Westwood, spent like $18.00 for it which was the going price for new Japanese vinyl back then.

Picked up some production music LPs for cheap with a lot of odd cues from whatever obscure films they were created for. One has several tracks of Piero Umiliani music which immediately caught my attention as well as several other composers I haven't heard of.

Found an Armando Trovojoli LP on RCA from 1959 (A Night In Naples) in absolute pristine condition.

Bought a couple of CDs on the Quartet label factory sealed for next to nothing ($5.00 each). This led to my seeking out a couple more online for the usual going rate of twenty smacks across the ass each plus shipping. I try not to pay much attention to a lot of stuff being released as I don't want to get too enthusiastic about what I can't afford. Very nice, well produced quality discs as I'm sure many people here already know.
