Here's the description of the label. It calls itself a collection which answers that question...

Hey Cyber, it's clear that English isn't the first language of whoever wrote this mission statement, so I wouldn't get too caught up in its verbiage.

I'm thinking that the folks at Grautag aren't really concerned with wide distribution as much as they are with the principle of music, not just as sound, but as artifact. Every record collector knows that the more scarce the item, the more valuable it is -- it becomes something of a relic and almost a certain mysticism surrounds it the more elusive it becomes.

It's almost as if they aren't making this music for the now but for twenty, thirty, fifty years from now...
