So I sent KS two CDs

...and this fellow and Oricon Allin wondered why I did that. Reasonable question, deserving an answer.
I did it because in the case of Rocky III, I already had the thing on cassette (I bought it reduced) - Zeta once told me re OSTs "you have at least 2000 and the possibility of duplication cannot be ruled out!" While I don't think I've got that many - yet - the possibility of duplication is another matter, and in some cases welcome if it's an expanded release (I've doubled up on Silverado, all three Rambo movies, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Total Recall for just such a reason) or if the OST is a song album with a score track and there's a separate score album (like The Iron Giant). Except that Rocky III has neither, and since I don't believe in buying a CD of something I already have in another format for any other reason...
In the case of the Basil Poledouris CD, it was because I found out from a very reliable source that it was a bootleg. A very convincing bootleg, admittedly, but still a bootleg. And supporting bootlegs, as the divine Miss O puts it, is not how I roll. If it had been the genuine article, I'd still have the disc because I love the music (especially since A Whale For The Killing is the only one of the three that I don't have on my tapes somewhere).
I'm glad he likes them. Now if only I'd brought Lonesome Dove or Red Dawn with me to play.

And once again, I thank you for doing so. I've enjoyed them.

Do let me know if there's anything I can hunt down for you...

If I can think of something, I'll tell you. I hope you can help when it happens.

If I can, I will.
