    There isn't.

    When the soundtrack was initially released, Chris Franke basically took a couple episodes' soundtracks and edited them into one track each, and it was released as "the" soundtrack. Eventually a volume 2 was released.

    After that, it's been single-episode cds ... The closest thing to what you're looking for is the "best of" cd that came with the cd-rom B5 station tour, whose name I can't remember right now, but Jan would remember.

    That cd is now available at sonicimages.com by itself, and a couple of the tracks were written for "Into the Fire", the cancelled B5 game, and were later used in Rangers.

        I visit my local hippie Hastings every week, and 30% of the time I find a used B5 soundtrack for $1.99 or so. I have about five CD's at this point, and they're the good ones, too.
        Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

            I think there are actually two versions of the "Best of.." CD. One came in the item above and the other, now available from Sonic Images is slightly different. I'm not sure but I think the one on SI now has the 5th season theme also and the original didn't. Don't take that as gospel until I can check, though.

            I've had all of the episodic CDs and probably still have them around. The ones I play over an over are "Sleeping in Light", "In The Biginning", the original two suites and "A Late Delivery from Avalon".

              I ripped all of mine and put like 100 or so on a CD-R. What with the short run time on most of the tracks, I could probably fit twice that on one disc.

                Yeah, the episodics are about 30-40 minutes each, aren't they? Some of them (like the ones I listed) I can follow the story along with the music. Especially SiL. But then, I've never found ane flaw to that episode.

                  Yeah, I can follow the story sometimes. I can also pick out where most of the music in the Vol. 2 Compilation comes from. (That's the only compilation one I have.) I also have In The Beginning and Sleeping in Light, three very good CDs.

                  I got the Severed Dreams and Z'ha'dum soundtracks as well, but I wouldn't recommend them.

                    The other one I *really* love is the music that Christopher Franke wrote for the Season 4 DVD sets.

                      You can actually buy various episode soundtracks (as well as a "Best of" for Crusade) on Christopher Franke's website www.sonicimages.com. I have all of the ones that were released and whatever I couldn't find in stores I bought from there. One time there was acutally a delay and they sent me an e-mail to let me know, and I could tell that it was a personal e-mail and not just a form, so I was impressed. Price isn;t too bad either.

                        I think I might buy the SI "Best of" CD to see if it does have The S5 theme or its just the theme from the once anticipated game by sierra much like the original. I also would like to mention didnt get my B5 CD from the Utility, I got it from the Official Guide to Babylon 5 PC-CDROM.
