Expanded and updated this list. I'm glad Footlight Records didn't actually go out of business, but their catalog now seems to be unfortunately bereft of all the rare Rocky audio that they used to have. I do notice that they recently re-added the 2005 Vancouver Cast CD to their selection, but that's about it at this point.

EDIT: As of 2009, they have nothing really that I couldn't also get from Amazon. Pretty sad state of affairs from the place that was once my source for most everything. :(

Have been updating this a bit. I should also mention that Sound of Music in Germany has a rather large number of CDs (that I haven't listed here yet) with cover songs from The Rocky Horror Show (also Hedwig and the Angry Inch). I just ordered a few of them myself. They're not cheap, but I think Sound of Music is the best overall source for musicals at the moment. Unfortunately for those of us in the United States, we don't really have our own source anymore. Searching for a "Tanz der Vampire" cast album (it's Jim Steinman, I was bound to get it eventually!) at Sound of Music results in half a dozen different recordings from Vienna, the Netherlands, Japan, Hungary, etc. while Footlight Records has... Bat Out Of Hell III. :evil:
