    Great to see the complete score of “Terms of Endearment” released. I have the original CD and was interested in this new edition, but since I live in the US, it’s cost prohibitive. With shipping the item comes to $54.00. Were it $30 or under, I’d buy without hesitation. Will watch eBay just in case.
