I didn’t even know this had ever been released, let alone on CD, but because of a truly fortuitous passing thought to look for it I have very gratefully added it to my library in early 2019 thanks to a chap in Taiwan (via eBay). I love the film and have had bits of its music lingering in my mind since basically 1987, so having the stuff in full glory now is just magical and wondrous.
