America and Jimmy Webb - The Last Unicorn Soundtrack

If you are a product of the 80's and/or early 90's, you will probably remember the movie from which this soundtrack is taken. It's a classic in that weird 80's fantasy film genre (see also: Willow, Legend, Labyrinth, Dark Crystal, etc.).

Here's the thing about the soundtrack: if you didn't grow up with the movie, you'll probably have less than no interest in the weepy folk rock that fills this soundtrack. If you, like me, grew up with the movie, you'll probably love this. I had to search far and wide for this soundtrack, and I finally obtained it through slightly less than legal means (though if you're RIAA, I totally bought this album). The songs on this album (particularly the instrumental ones) rely highly on your knowledge of the film itself, so you can't really hop on this one without prior experience. For the experienced, it's a gem.

Baleeted? Not For Someone Raised on It.
