If you can get one for $50 it's a bargain! My wife "sniped" mine for $55 with seconds to go in the auction 2 or 3 years ago. I've seen them go for $100!!! You're right, that's just crazy. There must be a LOT of closet Laura fans!

Hey TF1,

I know what you mean about Hold Me. I once stayed on E-Bay bidding on an Atlantic Issued Hold Me, Bid $100.00 at the last second and LOST IT!! :o It wasn't upsetting for me, though it would have been an impressive addition to my collection.

Does she realize
I awake every morning
With her strength by my side

This world keeps on spinning
Only she stills my heart
She's my inspiration
She's my northern star
I don't count my possession
All I call mine I will give her completely
To the end of all time

I am not a hero
I am not an angel
I am just a man

Tis true that Laura's CD Hold Me goes for so much. What people never seem to mention though, is that ANY of her "Appearances" such as the 1984 Lake Tahoe concert, the 1990 concert or her film "Mugsy's Girls" always go for the higher dollar as well.

No one seems to mention it, but Laura is pretty famous in the hearts of even the most cynical of pop music listeners. She has also gone down as a classically trained singer, as she never showed off with her voice. I played "Close Enough" at a party and everyone wondered where that song came from. I told them is was Laura Branigan, and they all said, as in 'GLOOORRRIIIAAA???"

I laughed and said of course. Who else? There was only ONE Laura Branigan!

Glad to hear from you guys now that things are back up and running :banana-dance:
Hold Me is a bit too rich for my blood, but I love the songs on it. I tend to look for deals, and I found a lonesome copy of The Essentials for sale, it jumped off the shelf into my hands :lol: so I bought it. The CD looks to be Race Hemi Orange in color, so I really liked it, lots of great songs on that one. I listened to it quite a bit over the holidays, lots of good photos, and a write up also. The platinum collection is a super deal, I think it has the most good songs for the money.
I am impatiently awaiting the re-issue of Hold Me, and Branigan2 so I can add them to my collection :music-listening:
