Where can I get ‘The Tracker’ soundtrack CD?

Unfortunately the CD “has been deleted in 2005” according to Warner/Mushroom, the last distributors. This means that it is no longer produced. Your only chance to get a copy is the second hand market. Or get the digital album from iTunes (see link below cover image).
