Presumably this was issued in Europe (France?) - I first became aware of it during the World Cup in France, when it was used in Canada in the MasterCard adverts (MasterCard was a sponsor). I had to ask MasterCard what the music was, and then spent a long time hunting for it, until I finally found it offered for sale from Australia on eBay.

My comment - the marketing of this astounding music was not very effective in North America.
