In 2002, after extensive pressure from fans of the show, Jan Hammer finally released a more comprehensive collection of the score music he wrote for Miami Vice. While the first disc contained music that had already been released on previous soundtracks (namely the three Miami Vice albums and Hammer's own album, Escape From Television), the second CD featured cues that had never previously been released in any format. However, the album was released in only limited numbers and today copies can sell for over $100. The album can be downloaded in its entirety, along with a bonus track, from www.janhammer.com.

All tracks written by Jan Hammer.
