Turner is a little harder because they have their own Production Music Library which got snapped up by Sound Ideas which is a full 15 albums of nothing but Turner used music.



Then they use completely discontinued libraries like Musique Cinema Television/Patchwork which many CDs and Vinyl never got a Gallerie Music re-release.

The proper full non Gallerie library is where your Glenn Rock and your Afro Rock ect were hosted this MCT Library had some rarer Turner tracks from the old WCW Wrestling on TNT Classic Movies and Mick Foley from WWF days was also released on them not Turner Wrestling though.
