The original 1989 SCSE release was limited to 2,000 printed copies;
for its first ten years, it was a top collectible with an estimated value of $250
or more. The perpetually in-print 1998 Varèse re-recording alleviated a small
portion of the enormous demand for the SCSE album, however that release still fetched
decent numbers in auctions until the debut of the 2012 Film Score Monthly set, which
was not limited in quantities and was available at soundtrack specialty outlets for an
initial price of $25.
