The original Virgin release in the U.S. became extinct soon after it was
sent to the market. For years, Willow sold for prices of up to
$100, even though it could be found in some European stores for as little
as $8. In 1995, however, the English branch of Virgin re-issued the CD
(without much press at the time), and by 1997, the price had been lowered
to $18. In June, 1998, a German release was made available for a regular
CD price. Because of the score's popularity, it is still difficult to
find; most stores do not carry any of its pressings.
