Re: La-La Land to release 15-disc original series score set

^You really should take an economics class or two. This is an item that obviously will have limited appeal, a luxury item for a particular class of collectors. It's expensive and difficult to make, and they can't be sure it would have enough widespread appeal to let them recoup the expense or make a profit. So they have to present it in a classy enough format that the collectors will be motivated to buy it at a high enough price point to justify the cost of creating this item in the first place.

This is how the world works. Stuff costs money to make. People can't just give stuff away. Just because you can't afford something, that doesn't mean there's some sinister conspiracy to rip you off or gouge you. Sometimes it's just not practical to make it affordable.
