Depending on the intention of the rights holders, this is a bit of a shame on a number of levels.
Firstly, Bill was left out of pocket after agreeing to this enterprise. He only agreed to do this on the basis that the performances were going to be broadcast on network television, thus perhaps increasing awareness of Bill's current and back catalogue of work.
This of course, has so far failed to materialise........
Secondly, this will no doubt be a popular item given how successful the original DVD release has proven to be. If Bill is to see no re-numeration from this enterprise then it takes the shine off of what should be a celebrated performance, I know that those of us who own a copy of the original DVD certainly cherish it.
Thirdly, as Bill asks, what sound mix are they going to use for this? Surely if they are going to use the mix that Bill and John Spence provided and Bill paid for out of his own pocket
, then Metropolis or whoever it is should be consulting Bill about it's use and ensuring that financial costs are at least covered
