I believe it was a similar rights issue that kept the Game Theory records out of print in Scott Miller's lifetime, after Enigma Records had collapsed.

So sad that there's this kinda of wrangling over what must be a thin gruel of royalties

exactly. Pat clarified on twitter that the rights are owned 50/50 but Roback's demands were unacceptable. Hard to understand what kind of demands you can have when it's understood that you only own 50%. Frankly owning 50% of your rights for this stuff is pretty good.

Is the thinking sells on Discogs for $75, therefore the demand must be huge!?

god who knows. it's probably more along the lines of 'fade into you has made oodles of money and so there must be huge demand for his back catalogue' but I don't think reissues of Emergency Third Rail Power Trip sold out instantly and made trillions of dollars.

which songs on Early Recordings II are actually Opal songs? I assume the ones where Kendra is singing, but other than that...
