How exactly is this a "reprint" considering the first release was not a print, but digital, and this is exactly the same thing?

"Reprint" because we don't have any other choice.
We should call it "re-issue" but we don't have that.

It's the exact same album, with the same track list and same track times.
The only differences with the 2006's DirectSong release are the publisher and the cover.
We generally don't add reprints/re-issue of digital albums unless there is a few differences.
I think it was interesting enough (also being a re-issue 7 years laters) to add it to the database.

As far as I can tell, this soundtrack was never "out of print" and was always available from DirectSong since it was released back in 06 or whenever. It doesn't look like they changed anything, except perhaps redid the digital cover art, and since it's not really a physical release I'm a little confused as to why this is listed as a reprint? Maybe we need a new category instead of reprint or reissue, something like "modified"?
