I asked him to order me the GB2 Soundtrack CD from a major Swiss reseller ( Lazer Boulevard). The shop reported that the CD is not in production anymore but that SONY, from the info they give to resell, is planning to re-release them in a Special Box Set (GB1+ GB2?) by the End of First Quarter 1999!!! This can be compatible with what GBHQ reported about Sony buying rights from Arista and the Re-release in Theaters of the movie.
