Here's the product listing for the CD at Amazon.com. (Click on the link to hear music samples and to order the CD.)
I checked the local Best Buy and Borders stores but neither had it in stock. Instead of waiting for it, I went ahead and ordered it online.
The Season 2 soundtrack was an excellent album, one which every BSG fan would do well to own. Season 3 should be another great album. In case you're wondering, it does include the new version of "All Along the Watchtower," as arranged by Bear McCreary and as sung by his brother BT4. It's the same version that was featured in the Season 3 finale, "Crossroads, Part 2."
Every year, Bear McCreary stages a live performance of music from the soundtrack. Unfortunately the concert is held in the Los Angeles area. (Unfortunate for those of us who don't live in or near L.A.) The concerts usually coincide with the release of the soundtrack CDs but this time the concert will be delayed a couple months. According to Bear McCreary's blog, the concert won't be held until sometime in January 2008. The show will include music from all three seasons and maybe a sneak preview of some of the music from Season 4.
Check out Bear McCreary's official blog for more details on the location and date. (Click on link.)

Visit buysoundtrax to purchase an autographed copy of the sheet music for the solo piano song "Battlestar Sonatica."
The "annual" Battlestar Galactica concert will be held at the Roxy nightclub in Los Angeles on April 13th. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster. Bear McCreary, Bt4 (Bear's brother Brendan and the singer on "All Along the Watchtower"), guitarist Steve Bartek and other BSG veterans will be on hand, along with an expanded band featuring Japanese taiko drums, orchestral strings, and more.
BSG cast members will serve as hosts for the performance. A brand-new video presentation/documentary will be shown at the concert as well. Sounds like it'll be a great show.
UPDATE: I'm changing the focus of this thread to any and all soundtracks for BSG and other music-related items, including Bear McCreary updates and concerts.
