Re: Live at Leeds questions, sort of long...

Unlike records, CD's don't wear out.  Before, you had people come in 
and buy their third copy of  "Dark Side of the Moon" because the one 
they had is worn out.  In order to get that repeat business the 
record companies give us the regular version, the remastered version,
 the 20th anniversary remastered edition, the 24kt gold edition and maybe one in a deluxe 
boxed set with special packaging.  Instead of the "planned 
obsolescence" of LP's we have multiple versions of the same CD.
