This score has experienced arguably the messiest album situation of any soundtrack
in history. The re-recorded Full Moon album of 1987 has always been easily attainable in the
retail markets, often for discount prices. The 1994 Atlantic album was the first (and for a
long time, the only) commercial representation of the original score, and this album also
remained readily available for many years. The 2007 3-CD set from Universal softened to
about $30 in value not long after its release, with used copies at $20.
There have been so many bootleg variants of this score that it serves little purpose to go into
detail about them all; most contain contents similar to their contemporary peers. The Off World, Gongo,
and Esper bootlegs (the last of which denounced by those who actually press legitimate Esper
Editions) are the most famous, though Deck Art and Los Angeles, November 2019 bootlegs, among
others, also exist. Variations within even these bootlegs are sometimes found, often because of
the poor English skills of those making alterations to them. The original Off World bootleg
of 1993 was the only one to receive significant distribution through soundtrack specialty
outlets, and once illegal downloading became pervasive in the late 2000's, the value of the
hardcopies of all the bootlegs began to diminish.
