Just in case anyone cares about my recommendations, here are the ones I have and would recommend most highly:

Bernstein AVA Collection (these sound incredible from the original tapes)
Themes from General Electric Theater (ditto, very overlooked superb Bernstein album)
Cocoon (classic Horner)
Desert Fury (superb Rozsa)
Hatari (classic Mancini, far more than just Baby Elephant Walk)
Heroes of Telemark/Stagecoach (album recording)
Inchon (excellent and exciting orchestral score despite its bad reputation, mostly from the fact that it was recorded very poorly)
Jason and the Argonauts, Julius Caesar, The Red House, The Man in Half Moon Street (great re-recordings for a great price)
Killing Season & The Monkey King (if the sound samples don't talk you into these melodic Young scores, I don't know what will...)
Return to the Blue Lagoon (excellent Poledouris...and get Red Dawn too if you don't have it)
Sky High (delightful early Giacchino)
Something Wicked This Way Comes (one of Delerue's best)
Revenge (surprisingly excellent thematic orchestral scoring for modern TV)
Hurry Sundown (incredible Montenegro magnum opus in breathtaking sound)
Warlock (yes...count me among those who actually loves this unusual but hypnotically powerful Goldsmith orchestral/choral score)
Twilight Zone (great TV scores by Poledouris/Safan/etc.)

...and last but not least, the three Tinker Bell scores by Joel McNeely are all gorgeous (and even occasionally powerful) thematic orchestral works with a celtic flavor. The second one (Lost Treasure) is my favorite, with the first one a close second, if you're prioritizing.

Also, it's not earth-shattering or anything, but Douglass Fake's own film score Holly vs. Hollywood is a very nice chamber work, and for $1.99, how can you go wrong?

Almost all of the '60s and '70s titles are necessary for survival.

Outside of those, consider adding Blow Out, Twilight Zone, Blue Lagoon, Monkey King, Something Wicked and maybe Delta Force 2 (Roger was right: the original album assembly is a much better listen than the complete presentation) for good measure.
