Historie(s) de Musique (Music from the films of Jean Luc Godard)

I am a total spazz for Godard's films like I am for Ben Wallers' music. I really can't get enough of his (earlier mostly) films, most of which have great music to boot. With a roster featuring Michel Legrand, Georges Delerue, and Antoine Duhamel it's tough to go wrong.
But why is there no music out there for 'Band of Outsiders' (Bande a Part)? It seems strange seeing as it was advertised as Michel Legrand's last film score (?) and just happens to get stuck in my head quite often. IF YOU HAVE IT PLEASE SHARE.
This is a good compilation though, except for the last three songs...yeesh. And the re-recordings of Anna Karina's songs lack some of the spark of those in the films, but really are nothing to complain about.
A good place to start but leaves you wanting more (I will post more later).
If you haven't seen the movies, watch them all before you listen to this. Godard is a genius.
