The condition and availability of the Masters, is a big factor... as is the contractual rights and advance-royality requirements of the labels and the artists... as is THE BIG ONE = the cost to produce and market each title -vs- the income that can be derived from selling these discs.

Needless to say... if the sales volume can safely result in a bottom line that is truly profitable, somebody will "put up the money" to seal the deal... or NOT.

Oh, do not get me wrong. I was not suggesting at all that this was an easy thing to get done. Not at all. Only that you being there, I`m sure it must have come across your mind a view times while there. And, there is no way to guarantee how profitable or not this kind of venture will be.
