A fella can hope! But I wonder if the labels are going to spend the next few years transitioning to
download sales using existing digital masters and not worry about what's not be digitally mastered
for now. I worry very much about the future of deluxe inclusive box sets from companies like Mosaic,
and even less ambitious compilations and catalog-refreshment remasters from the content owners
themselves. Warner Music, now a stand-alone, seems for the moment to be very much supporting Rhino's
continuing reissue/repackage model, but I see a change in emphasis from the biggest mega-glomerates.
Interesting article in NY Magazine about Jobs and Apple:
That tangentially touches on all of this.
