One of the Naxos family of recordings is a collection of 'soft classics' 
for storecast. IIRC, they are sold in sets of ten or twenty CDs. At 
Klaus Heyman's suggestion, I made an MP3 CD-ROM to provide uninterrupted 
play so no one would have to attend to the player throughout the day.

I've no idea whether the CD-ROM version was ever issued. Of course, 
Klaus had all rights to the recordings and they were licensed for 
storecast use.
