In fact, I'll never understand the dearth of Rock and Roll DVD-A's and SACD's compared to the overwhelming # of jazz and classical discs.
Let's see, ignore the vast majority of music buyers by pigeon-holing mainstream listeners/buyers into being uncaring about music quality and you guarantee that it happens that way...
Led Zeppelin 1-IV plus Houses of the Holy and Physical Graffiti would sell as a set. The Zep box set sold well MOSTLY to people who had all of the music already.
Let me ask you this question and to everyone else out there - if WEA put out EVERY Zeppelin record touched up for high res audio, with PRO MP3 files (copy protected) and video as well as live supplementals - are you telling me you couldn't find a way to convince Santa to put that under the tree for you this Holiday season?
