XSL select value-of query

In the below sample xml, I want to select the Price for all the CDs with type 'Alternative' and release date in 2008. How can I do that?

<xsl:value-of select="Catalog/Items/CD[Type = 'Alternative' AND Details/Release = '2008%' ]/Price "/>
<Catalog>
	<Items>
        	<CD>
			<Type>Alternative</Type>
          		<Details>
                        	<Title>Coldplay's Album</Title>
            			<Release>2008-05-30</Release>
          		</Details>
          		<Price>12.00</Price>
        	</CD>
        	<CD>
			<Type>Rock</Type>
          		<Details>
                        	<Title>U2's Album</Title>
            			<Release>2008-07-15</Release>
          		</Details>
          		<Price>18.00</Price>
        	</CD>
        	<CD>
			<Type>Alternative</Type>
          		<Details>
                     		<Title>FFF's Album</Title>
            			<Release>2007-05-30</Release>
          		</Details>
          		<Price>20.00</Price>
        	</CD>
	</Items>
</Catalog>

sorry, hit by case-sensitivity
  <xsl:value-of select="Catalog/Items/CD[Type = 'Alternative' and starts-with(Details/Release, '2008') ]/Price "/>
is correct

Note, that if there are more than one CD with the same properties (not in your example)
this will result in a concatenated string of all the prices
so you might want to do something like this

<xsl:for-each select="Catalog/Items/CD[Type = 'Alternative' and starts-with(Details/Release, '2008') ]">
   <price><xsl:value-of select="Price "/>
</xsl:for-each>
