Let's say you had someone offer you the money to buy JUST ONE CD. And you decided you would get that one that has been out of reach solely because it is too expensive.

Your benefactor is OK with that because price does not matter.

What ONE CD would you get?

My answer to this would have been so difficult five years ago, but as of today probably Intrada's CAPRICORN ONE.

Zero Dark Thirty FYC, super rare because it wasn't nominated for anything, so it wasn't mass-produced after the nomination for entire guilds like other FYC albums.

Ditto The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo FYC.

Also The Boy in the Striped Pajamas FYC, which always goes for more than I can afford on eBay.

This was my grail for quite a while about ten years ago, till I finally won it on eBay. I'm a Nyman completistsmile If I remember right, I think I spent $112 on it, but it's amazingly rare, or at least it was then.

Wu-Tang Clan's unique copy album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, currently at 5 million $.

Soundtrack-wise, there are little high priced albums I still desire.

Cronenberg The Brood/Scanners/Dead Ringer. Why some label won't reissue this is astonishing.

Cronenberg The Brood/Scanners/Dead Ringer. Why some label won't reissue this is astonishing.

I don't know what the current prices are on a lot of the stuff I don't have, but this CD is certainly one I wish I had. I recently checked out the price on this and it was ridiculous.

I'm also bummed about not grabbing Island At The Top Of The World. Last time I looked it was going for about $75 - $100.

Instead of spending money I don't need to spend I am going to patiently wait for a rerelease or complete edition.

I've never seen a legit copy of the Artificial Intelligence FYC CD that I could afford.

I'm a bit puzzled as to why none of the labels have tackled an expanded edition.

John Barry's Jagged Edge.

I have a superb CDr transfer but would love to replace this with a legitimate CD release. The CD was released at a time when money was very short and whilst it's far from being one of his best scores ...

... it is John Barry.

The only film score composer worth spending any decent money on, IMHO.

I'd like a copy of The Outlaw Josey Wales, Screen Archives Entertainment JFC-1.

Every time one comes up for auction I get outbid, due to insufficient funds, a not uncommon problem for most of us.

Maybe someone will re-release it sometime soon.

THE TOWERING INFERNO! I sure hope it's re-issued soon.

"Toy Soldiers"! Second would be "Switchback". (I know you said one)

Varèse Predator. I had won it for $100 sealed on ebay a few years back (well before Intrada released it).

I too would love to get a complete AI and Boy in the Striped Pajamas. I've never had or bid on a FYC disc. I'm curious about the Conti Blood In/Blood Out - I honestly don't know the score.

I do on rare occasion buy things on ebay or Screenarchives Collectors items - I managed to get an Outlaw Josey Wales and Revolution Francaise at lower prices than today - lucky!!

I started collecting soundtrack LP's in the late 1960's and it just keeps going - haven't yet sold anything on ebay. But - I am happy when things are re-issued for new fans - that is as it should be! We need to grow the Fan Base!! It is not the $$ but the appreciation of the music (well, I hope for most of us....).

Oh oops read the thread title wrong, my bad...

Although I will say at the time Varèse's Die Hard Deluxe Edition but I wasn't going to pay for how much it was going for on the secondary market.

Varese's BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT by Bill Conti.

One of the few backlog CD's i miss in my collection.

Newman/Friedhofer's 'Mark of Zorro' or complete Rozsa 'Thief of Bagdad.'

With recording costs, score prep, etc., I figure one copy of each would cost me over $100,000.

I'd want the Varese Sarabande club Bernard Herrmann box issued in the club's first incarnation in the early 90s. I didn't learn about the club until several releases had been issued.

Have seen the Herrmann once in the SAE rarities/out of print listings. It was way pricey. I have most of what is on that set on other, audiophile recordings, but there are some things I don't have.
