I've seen the website where he was advertising his collection for sale. If I recall, he wants to sell the whole thing as one unit.
Yeah I think it was going for 2 Million. At least the site said that. Yikes! Wow...
This is amazing. We have about 200 Records and I thought that was a lot. Jason and I went to a guy's house in Birmingham (I believe) and he had a bunch, but nothing like this... Cool stuff!
I can't believe he is asking $3 million when it's worth $50 million. That's crazy... makes me want to cry.
hahaha. Outrageous. So much stuff that hasn't even been put on C.D. either!!!
Zach you need a record player if you don't have one...you said why....
Ain't worth $50 million. No way. that's an average of $50 a record and he was going for quantity not quality as he collected. He can't have that many valuable records...
95% of that stuff is going to be "Jackass McGee and His Nose-Whistle Three Sing Red Sovine While He Was Thinking About Jimmie Rodgers" and stuff like that. It strikes me more as a situation where one has attached himself to something so much, that by putting a dollar value on it, he at the same time is putting a dollar value on the sum of his life.
Oh man, I love Jackass McGee. But I always felt like the second nose-whistler held them back from greatness.
Wow! That is an incredible collection. It's so sad that something like that could be lost. A museum should buy them, then convert all the vinyl to digital ( just to preserve the vinyl) and display the vinyl, and have listening stations set up like the old record stores.
I was at his store when he was open.Remember sifting thru a lot of junk. Didn't find many gems. I own probably 1500 records.
