Default Soundtracks seriously in need of a reprint

Due to the fact that some publishers no longer exist or for whatever reason stopped production of a particular soundtrack, there are a lot of great soundtracks that are no longer available, except seldom available on eBay and other auction sites, and even then, they usually sell for much more then the original cost.

Soundtracks that I think are in serious need of a reprint are:

Ecco: Songs of Time
F-ZERO
F-ZERO X Guitar Arrange Edition
Gyakuten Saiban Jazz Album ~Gyakuten Meets Jazz Soul~
Need For Speed III Hot Pursuit - The Album
Ragnarok Online II O.riginal S.ound T.rack
ROCKMAN X ALPH-LYLA with Toshiaki Otsubo
Shenmue chapter 1 -yokosuka- Original Sound Track !!!
Sonic Adventure "Digi-log Conversation" Original Sound Track
SONIC ADVENTURE 2 ORIGINAL SOUND TRACK multi-dimensional
Sonic R
Super Mario World
The Smile of You ~theme from Elebits~
...and many more!

Discuss soundtracks that you think are seriously in need of a reprint. Would they sell much better now then when they were first available? What are the complications in moving to a new publisher?

I believe that the Super Mario RPG soundtrack is in need of a reprint, especially after it hit the Virtual Console. A lot of Europeans, like me are just playing the game for the first time, and not only is the music brilliant, but it sells for way over the original price. I've seen it for over $400.00 on ebay, for example.

I'm a big fan of Cave soundtracks and I wish Cave would make more than the limited number they normally make, but I'm sure that's just wishful thinking.

All three Parasite Eve soundtracks, though with any luck, at least the first one will be reprinted around the time the third Parasite Eve game's soundtrack is released.

All of the DJMax albums need to be re-printed and made available to the public. I seriously think that they would sell well.

Grim Fandango, The Dig and Fallout.

I don't even know how that last one was originally available.

I want this so, so much:

Digimon World Original Soundtrack


Although I know where I can find this, the price is way, way too expensive.

Star Fox, bar none. Still one of the best VG soundtracks ever made in my opinion.

I don't know, but man, from what I've seen, Yoshi's Island has to be the rarest soundtrack ever. People are willing to pay ridiculous prices like $500 for it right here in the marketplace, and it's on 15 people's wish lists. It's funny, when you buy these things for like $25 or $30 when they first come out, it never occurs to you that 8 years down the line people will be paying crazy amounts of money for it. Maybe you expect that thing more and more now, but I have a number of soundtracks that I never thought that would happen to (and actually I guess I never gave it much thought at all).

Oh, needless to say now, Yoshi's Island needs a reprint. Actually it probably needs two, because at this point (even with as few fans as VGM has) the first one would sell out in about 8 hours.
