Hi,

does anyone knows a site or an on-line shop (other than ebay) that have a big collection of OSTs to download or buy.
I'm actually looking for Police Academy 2 soundtrack (especially for "Dirty Work" song)

Thank you for your help!

A great reference site for searching movie soundtracks is IMDB.

Found this soundtrack listing for Police Academy 2.
There is a reference to the possible purchase of soundtracks on Amazon.com.

Any more info will be helpful.

Why not eBay? There is a lot of good stuff on there. In fact I'm selling my collection of over 300 Soundtracks....have about 30-40 rare ones listed now.

What would you do if you got into it with someone like this online?
I put up an ad in Kijiji asking if anyone had certain jazz CDs I never had as CDs, only albums.
That was St. Catharines Kijiji, living in Thorold South, closer to Niagara Falls.
I received a reply from a man who said he was living in Montreal in Quebec.
He said he would mail me a CD copy he could make himself, having a huge library access,
and he wanted me to send him $5 if I liked it. I agreed right away but was very skeptical.
It arrived in the mail. He included a print of the album cover and the music listing.
It sounded great. I sent him a semi-lengthy message, saying I'm going to pay $10.
I ordered a couple more, again, only satisfied, and he sent personal replies.
And these were CD versions I've been looking for since CDs came out to no avail.
This Montreal sender said he has movies, TV episodes and almost any music I can name.
I won't include his contact information until I ask him if he wants me to.

You might wonder about my enthusiasm here when I wish the world didn't have any computers.
In 1970, the owner of our local music store, like a second father for me, said John look at this.
He used to have a TV store and was looking at a supplier catalogue from that.
It had a Sparx cassette player, seeing that for the first time. My friend said he was ordering one,
and told me why I should, as well as his special price offer as ordering first time product.
He said I could be playing a cassette and jump around and not make it skip like a record.
That was shocking, okay, me with heavy personal rug-rubbing static to begin with.
He said I could rewind the tape and play a solo over and over and over non-stop,
and it wouldn't deteriorate the tape, no needle digging in. That was amazing.
And then he said I could use the AM-FM radio to record songs from radio stations.
That was hard to believe. That's also when FM came out, and I'm sure you know,
many albums had the one big hit but the rest wasn't worth listening to,
so I even stopped buying albums and switched to blank cassettes.
I invited all my musical friends over at the end of a day,
with all my albums spread out on a table downstairs, and let them take turns picking.

However, I am hearing of some new technology that enchants me from afar,
hearing violins and trumpets in the distance, calling my name, and you will,
if you can just bring a bass player over to start a band, now offered three bar gigs.
I am only serious. I hope this comes through for you, if you want it to.
