Tales of the City on CD?

Although no announcements of a Broadway transfer, the much hyped Tales of the City (not to be confused with the disastrous A Tale of Two Cities) may be going into the studio to record a soundtrack. Featuring music by the legendary musical genius Jake Shears of Scissor Sister fame and John "JJ" Garden, the musical features a cast including Wesley Taylor, Betsy Wolfe, Mary Birdsong and Manoel Felciano.
I will say, I cannot wait for this to move to NYC, but until then, a soundtrack will suffice. Anything by Jakes Sheers is brilliant.
