Is there a Billy Elliot CD out anywhere? Legally, of course. Has anyone bought it from amazon.com or something? thanks.
And the other thing about the Phantom Lady was, Bert, she realized, in the city that never sleeps... What did she realize, Kitten? That all the songs she'd listened to, all the love songs, that they were only songs. What's wrong with that? Nothing, if you don't believe in them. But she did, you see. She believed in enchanted evenings, and she believed that a small cloud passed overhead and cried down on a flower bed, and she even believed there was breakfast to be had... Where? On Pluto. The mysterious, icy wastes of Pluto.

Sure, I ordered mine from Amazon.co.uk through one of their sellers.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000BWGEP2/qid=1137625644/sr=8-2/ref=pd_ka_2/203-7590863-6215905
The cost with international shipping would be 12.77 pounds, or about $22.50 US.
I'm sure someone else can tell you how to get it directly from the States, though I'm not sure it would be cheaper.

I got mine from Footlight. It is currently an import, but I think the US release is in February.

I think the score is quite dull.

Tower Records has it already as an import. I think it costs around $35.00.

It comes out in the US on Feb. 7th, so if you can wait a few weeks, you don't have to pay import prices.

i got it at Virgin for 25 bucks (i had a 10 dollar off coupon) and it is great. it takes a listen or two to actually appreciate it and get past all the elton john goo, but once you do it is truly a wonderful album

You're not allowed to listen to the CD until you've seen the musical!

Well you are obviously (I'm not like a control freak), but if you do, you'll wonder what all the fuss is about. The CD works on the level of reminding you what an amazing experience the show was, but it doesn't work in isolation (in my opinion).

So, get on a plane and get into London SW1 ASAP.

I loved BILLY ELLIOT. My CD should arrive next week. I'm sure it will be a wonderful reminder of the show.

I saw it in London last month and it definitely DIDN'T live up to the hype. The score is boring as hell.

I have yet to buy the cast album...probably won't.

You can preview it at www.iclassics.com/billyelliot. Here is the press release for the US release:

"The first musical since 'Rent' to exert such a complete emotional hold on its audience"
The New York Times

For Immediate Release


The Original Cast Recording Of The Smash Hit Musical
BILLY ELLIOT
Music By Elton John
In-Stores February 7, 2006 On Decca Broadway
**Package Includes Bonus CD Featuring Three New Songs Performed By Elton John**


January 5, 2006 (New York, NY) -- Based on the beloved film, the new musical Billy Elliot is London’s hottest sold-out ticket, playing to sold out houses and reaching wide acclaim from critics and theatre-goers alike. The production will move to Broadway in 2007, but Americans will have the treat of experiencing Billy Elliot before it even crosses the pond with Decca Broadway’s release of the Original Cast Recording featuring a score and performances by Elton John. Included in the 2-CD box set are complete lyrics and exclusive photo postcards.

Hailed as "The Greatest British Musical" by The London Telegraph, Billy Elliot has won universal praise for its powerful and theatrical score, unlike any Elton John has ever written. The songwriter has himself expressed having an emotional attachment to the story since seeing the film, and has called this work one of his most heartfelt. His uplifting orchestrations run a wide gamut of genres including influences of rock, show music and pop ballads. From the jazzy hooks of the catchy “Solidarity” to the enchanting theatrics of the cast of children singing and tap dancing in “Expressing Yourself”, the music reaches beyond the standard Broadway fare. Elton John’s solo renditions of key tracks are the icing on the cake, further proving the super-star’s status as one of the foremost singer-songwriters of our time. Billy Elliot was produced by the legendary Phil Ramone and has a book and lyrics by Lee Hall, who wrote the original screenplay for the film.

Set in the mid 1980s in northeastern England, Billy Elliot tells the emotional story of an 11-year- old miner's son and his quest to win a spot at the Royal Ballet School. Billy dreams of a life of dancing amidst the challenge of breaking away from his small town’s conformity and traditions. It is an inspirational tale of perseverance with a universal message of triumph over strife.
