I just found this on iTunes. Maybe if there's an official album then there will be an official DVD of the ceremonies, as well. So, that could be there are two versions of the ceremonies to buy: the (possible) VANOC version and the version NBC sells (assuming they'll sell it like they did in Beijing).

Great find!

CTV will also have a multi-disc highlights album of all the competitions at the Games, including the full length feature version of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. It'll be available in both DVD and Blue Ray.

I just wanna thanks the Brazilian iTunes Store for only selling iPhone/iPod Touch Apps! [/sarcasm]

The box sounds very interesting. And since I couldn't convince my folks here to get HDTV to watch the Opening Ceremony, at least I'll have the blu ray version!

It's on Amazon with the cover:

I'm gonna see if HMV or Future Shop has it tomorrow. Definitely want to pick it up.

Does anyone know if it includes the First Nations segment, or more precisely, the chant music that was played during the athletes' entrance?

I downloaded it. Disappointed that kd lang is missing, but just proves she did it live!

Hallelujah is on her album Hymns of the 49th Parallel in case you are looking for it.

I've got this album. It's very good.

spent the day listening to Joni Mitchell's "Both sides now"

Yeah, I've had it on my mind too, Mo.

For the first time since "Amigos Para Siempre", this is one song that is defining the games a lot to me personally.

So if any of you are in Canada or BC or at the games in Vancouver, HMV has both albums and will have the closing ceremony album on March 1 too. Prices for the albums are:

$12.99 - Sounds of Vancouver 2010: Opening Ceremony Commemorative Album

$14.99 - Canada's Hockey Anthems: Sounds of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games

I just picked up both albums. Both are in a cardboard cover.

The Opening Ceremony album is good, except for that rendition of O Canada - sounds like a Christmas song.

I just took a look at the cardboard sleeve. It says the Garou song will be included on the Closing Ceremony album coming out March 1. Now if only they included Hallelujah on there it would be complete.

WTF? I just checked Itunes Store for Australia and the Sounds of Vancouver album has no k.d. lang singing 'Hallelujah'...what a joke!

Just regarding this (can't be bothered checking the whole thread if someone else responded) - kd lang is distributed by Warner in Australia but is signed to an independent label as far as actual releases go - thus this package is not "allowed' a release with her on it due to licensing in our territory.

Plus Warner are pushing her new greatest hits collection - with a new ad starting next week featuring... 'Hallelujah'!

Ok just finished listening to everything. This has to be, with Sydney 2000 and Barcelona 92 my fave musical score for an opening ceremony ever :D truly breathaking ( The Olympic Flame, Peaks of Endeavour and Parade of Athletes are my fave trio on the whole album).

I was just listening to the CD again and realized there is an error. Two tracks are switched around and mis-labeled. The cover says Track 14 is Raising the Flag and Track 15 is We Are More (poem). After listening, I realized the two tracks are switched around: Track 14 is We are More and Track 15 is Raising the Flag. So, there's an error on the sleeve.
