Walnut is a CD publisher. Unless they assembled the disc themselves,
then someone else assembled the data and may own the (collection
copyright) rights to reproduction of new CDs. Of course, they may
be looking for a new publisher, or may try to publish it themselves.

Walnut probably dropped it for lack of sales. They like to see at
least 1,000 copies sold a month. If you own a copy of the old CD,
check the credits and I'm sure you can track down the creator.
Or ask Walnut Creek. They might tell you.

It's more cost-effective and less risky these days to do short-run
CDs on CD-R. Still, all-told you can get 1,000 "real" CDs for
$800-$1,500, depending on which options you want.
