In 2008, a limited edtion of  2000, thirteen track CD soundtracks were issued in the US and have since gone out-of-print. A soundtrack for the film SHORT CIRCUIT 2  was never issued in any format.  This is the first time they’ve been released together. Both titles remain out of print in any medium.
