I would have thought that "absolute rubbish" might be able to have large short-term sales because of canny marketing and interest from fashion faddists, but would struggle to stay continuously on catalogue with ongoing large-scale sales for nearly forty years simultaneously undergoing specialist reissues in several different audiophile formats over ... more
