Thanks, iarooster! Don't know why I couldn't find that link before.

In case anyone's interested it looks like it's all original music, sometimes in the background, sometimes in the foreground, but never complete and isolated songs.

The material is very much in the Latin Playboys style, as in kind of moody and truly excellent.

Funny, I just got mine from eBay for $1.99 plus $4 shipping!

For those without physical copies, the CD officially credits the music as "Performed by Latin Playboys."

And the documentary itself is really really cool too.
