This is news to me. We have a lot of western game music experts here, and nobody has added this. This looks suspiciously like the redbook audio, with a set of fake coverscans.

Seems like i found that back cover in the past with some covers for Half-Life bestseller series version.
But that front cover is very new to me, i have never seen it before.

I think it's a redbook anyway so not eligible for the database.
If someone have more informations (like scans of the Discs..etc..), let us know.

I'm 100% positive that this is a gamerip. Someone by the name of Kevin Sartori actually posted one he did sometime in 2006 on his Blogspot.

Here's an excerpt of his post:

Eleven of the twenty-eight tracks here also appear on that CD, but with different song titles. I've noted the alternate song title in the comment tag for those eleven tracks. The mostly electronic score itself is exciting to listen to as it covers the full range from ambient soundscapes to more mainstream orchestral-like cues to edgy rhythyms.
Original blog entry found here.

Also, the composer is literally an enigma seeing as little info about him is known, much less has a website, so I strongly doubt this was released by him...or by Valve for that matter.
