The 1985 Polydor albums were commercial products pressed (with idenitical
contents and cover art) in several countries. Due to poor distribution in the U.S., many
Americans ended up with the West German or Japanese pressings. This album sold for as much as
$50 in the early 1990's after it fell out of print, but was devalued by the 1995 releases.
The regular commercial releases of 1995 featuring the white cover were pressed by DCC Compact
Classics in America and Silva Screen in Great Britain. The first pressing of the DCC product
in America came in a tan slip case, though the product underneath it was exactly the same.
DCC also released the double-LP on 180 "virgin vinyl" at the same time. All of these 1995
products eventually fell out of print as well.
The 2008 set (called "The Soundtrack Collection") is a regular commercial product with a
retail price of $60 but initally sold for $43 to $45 at primarily major online outlets.
