World's Greatest Music Collection

The World’s Greatest Music Collection, also known as Ebay Auction 320230084120, was selling for $3,000,000!!!! No bids were received, but this collection is huge!!!!

Here’s their description of the collection:

"
Organized and cataloged, the collection is meticulously maintained and housed in a climate-controlled warehouse. Every recording in this amazing collection has been personally acquired by the collection’s owner over the past fifty years and represents a lifetime of work and his desire to see the music preserved for future generations. Deteriorating health and related financial concerns are forcing the owner to sell the collection at far less than its true value. The estimated value of the collection, on a per-item basis, is in excess of $50 million."

Some of what the winning bidder receives:

The entire record collection of more than a million- and-a-half 45 RPM Records, a million plus albums, more than 300,000 compact discs, thousands of 78s, cassettes and 8-Track tapes.

A few other interesting items singled out in the collection are the first CD ever made (of 300), the first flat phonograph record (from 1888), antique recording and listening devices, 10,000 phonograph needles and hundreds of cartridges, and ownership of the owner’s publishing company and seven independent record labels.

Here is the amazing statistic that really got my attention. More than six million song titles are in the collection. That represents 99% of all of history’s charted music and 50-60% of the uncharted songs. It is the greatest collection of recorded music in the world.

No word if this CD is provided in the collection....
