ARC connected MMM to a buyer from Brazil who purchased the collection. He has an agent here in NYC who also organized the donation of 25.000 Brazilian recordings to our library when we created www.BrazilianMusicDay.org. Needless to say we think he is a good guy and he is primarily interested in buying any large, non-classical collection - the bigger and better, the better.

>> The last of the old-time record store owners, "Music Man" Murray Gershenz has died at 91. Most collectors never liked the guy, but I always had a cordial relationship with him. As far as I know, he never sold his "$5 million" record collection. Wonder what's going to happen to it now.
