This is old news. Has been like this ever since the CD went out of print. It is available on iTunes for $16.99.

Don't ever question the stupidness of mankind. The Home Alone 3 soundtrack ranges between 1 cent and 100 dollars.

What's even worse is that plenty of John Williams scores go for higher. I don't understand the film score community. Why would someone pay $300 for a CD that's worth only $15? Who determines these set prices? Why is Earthquake, Jaws 2, and The Reivers being charged for over $70?

Speaking as a collector, I like to have an original album that I bought and paid for (or received as a guift) on my shelf. I'm not gonna go too crazy....but I'll spend more than the CD is worth to have it sitting on my shelf.

Old news indeed. Lately it seems a lot of "sellers" when ever a soundtrack goes OOP they think they can jack the rest of us and raise up the price double the amount and when it's not worth that much unless it's a set like ROTK complete recordings. Still though this has become stupid lately.

Edit: Actually if there is an OOP CD that I want I will gladly pay up to $200 for it, if I really want it badly enough. Just my only condition that it's either A: sealed or if not sealed then B: Very well taken care of.

The reason they list those prices is because there is someone out there who has or will pay that much for it.

That is a disturbing thought.

Wow...just incredible that someone would charge that much for Transformers. Even more incredible is that someone would pay it!!

To think, I bought mine at a used CD store in San Francisco for $7.99.

In a way. It's also one of the basic principles of capitalism.

Certainly is - charge as much as people will pay for it, regardless of how much it is realistically worth.

Gotta be better things to spend $100 on than a CD when there are starving people on the planet...

I'm reminded of Andy Warhol's can of beans ...

But it's good to know that should I ever need some money badly, I could just rip off some poor bastards who think they know something about scores.

Just to think I could buy three of the ToD reissues by Concord and sell each one for a hundred bucks ...
