Just wondering why there is so much classical to be had.
Is this because:
So much classical has been re-released on CD?
Classical collectors are an older lot and prefer the simplicity of a CD
Classical collectors are quicker to adopt new & better sounding formats?
Is classical less collectible than other genres?
Of course all of these questions are certainly arguable.
I'm just wondering.
