Notes

Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - Volume 1 & 2 compiled onto one CD, with two tracks missing, both from Volume 1: Jenny Burton & Patrick Jude's duet performance of "Strangers In A Strange World (Love Theme From Beat Street)" and Ruben Blades' "Tu Carino / Carmen's Theme".

There are two different versions of this Groovebuster release with the same catalogue number but different artwork. On this version the CD artwork is a photographic image, the tracklist is on the right side of the back inlay and the back cover of the CD booklet includes ten stills from the movie.
