It certainly seems as if the "return on investment" forecasts for future DVD-A productions are not enticing enough for major labels to produce any new titles.
At the same time, there is a lot of money being spent (by hardware AND software companies) on the "possibility" that millions of people are going to buy HD-DVD players for their homes and automobiles.
So... maybe... just maybe... somebody is gonna wise up to the opportunity to diversify the HD catalog, to include Hi-Rez "music-only" discs.
How about Led Zeppelin II, as an HD Music Disc?
* Re-mastered 2.0 and re-mixed 5.1 music tracks, in UNCOMPRESSED 24/96 !!
* On-screen album liner notes/artwork, plus previously unavailable photos from the original sessions
* Bonus HD Video clips that are not available on any full-length HD-DVD release
* Backward compatible with ALL DVD players in the known universe
Anybody wanna buy one?
