WHAT IS THE PROBLEM??

"I have been a music collector for over 30 years, and I have seen several clips from this concert, and actually have one clip in my collection. So, the question here is "What is the problem?"..in view of the current incredible multimedia technology why is it so difficult to find video footage of classic music icons like Al Green and Barry White whose careers have covered over 30 years and two generations and are loved by millions of people! The financial revenue from releasing DVD concerts of such legends is a no brainer, so whats the problem? Al Green does have several gospel concerts on DVD, which is of course fine, however his international success in music was through his R&B career. Barry White is another example, with a career spanning 3 decades and not one decent DVD concert available. Hopefully, a more recent concert than 1972 from Al Green will be released as well. Oh well, maybe one day these legends will be given the respect they so richly deserve...and then again..maybe not....our loss."
