    Super! And it's an unlimited pressing, so you don't have to worry about grabbing a copy before the stock runs out.

    $24 for one disc with shipping? Really?

    Oh, for crying out--

    It's not exactly a price gouge. They're not charging just for a disc and shipping. They're charging for licensing and re-use fees (taking a gamble, though in this case a pretty safe one, that this particular item will move significantly more units than their standard 3000-edition limited releases), for the work-hours of painstaking remastering, for the production of extensive liner notes, etc. -- the price, which is standard for an FSM (or pretty much any other specialty soundtrack label), goes into producing a high-quality product for a very niche market.

    If this were a straight reissue of what had gone before, it would be a rip-off.

    And if the product is not worth $19.95 + p&p to you . . . don't buy it. Simple. :)

    With 75:28 of total music, containing many previously unreleased cues, this is something I will get for sure.

    I just got this yesterday and it's fantastic. Here's hoping some more classic Horner will get the same treatment (Willow, The Rocketeer, etc).

    I got mine today. Sounds great. There's a nice booklet included in the package. I'm about halfway through reading it, but I learned that James Horner had a cameo in the film!

    And, here's a pic of what General Kenobi was referring to:

    So I have this for a listen to see if it's worth the purchase to me. I really need to give it a listen.
