For most of us, not every soundtrack has to be represented complete and as featured in the film. Some LPs are simply perfect in configuration. I'd love to see the following:

UMG
Winning (Dave Grusin)
Fast Break (David Shire)
Foxes (Giorgio Moroder, Various)

Sony Music
MacKenna’s Gold (Quincy Jones)
Eyes of Laura Mars (Artie Kane, Various)
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (Frank DeVol)

Warner Music
The Hot Rock (Quincy Jones)
The Outlaw Josey Wales (Jerry Fielding)
The Arrangement (David Amram) (high quality legitimate release)

Varese's initial release of Gremlins II is really perfect as is and I wasn't interested in the Club release. Same goes for Santa Claus: The Movie. I did buy Quartet's 3-CD set but I listen to the album program more than the full score.

I couldn't do without the Gremlins 2 expansion. In addition to what I think is essential added music, I also believe the sound quality is much better than that on the original album.

The expansion got criticized by some for being one of Varese's albums mastered too hot, but that is not true at all. Unfortunately, that critique only sends mixed messages to the label when we want sound done "right."

In Cold Blood was recently buried in a Quincy Jones box sex. Should have been released by Intrada as a single CD.

This has amused me more than it should. :)

Barry's The Knack And How To Get It is another example of a perfect album.

The original Dances With Wolves is also a great listen and an interesting alternative to the LLL complete release. I like both.
