First, thanks to David for a very helpful post.

Forgive me if I'm repeating myself from the previous discussion (I can't
remember exactly when it was) but when I rented the film this past Fall the
CDs were in there, but one was severely damaged. (The silver material on
the recorded side had literally flaked off of parts of the disc.) As I
recall, the damaged disc was the music, DJ and advertising version, so I did
end up using one of the other options.

Despite my concern about using that same soundtrack each time I screened it,
I have to admit I missed having that version as an option for that
screening. So if that CD could be replaced that would be great. Otherwise
I would recommend that folks with interest in the film pursue the .mp3 as an
option (especially if you're screening it in a classroom context where
setting up the projectors in the first place is time consuming).
