For Sale: The world’s largest record collection

“This is a short film I made about the owner of the world’s largest record collection. This film probably best represents the direction I see myself going as a director. I love everything about it. It’s my baby.” Sean Dunne: Director

The Archive by Sean Dunne is the story of Paul Mawhinney’s record collection, which is now up for sale

I hope Paul’s collection gets preserved in its entirety somehow soon. Such a huge slice of history which, sadly, no one seems interested in.

    an amazing story. here’s hoping the best for Paul & “the archive”.

    by rough estimate it would take over 450 years to play all the records (@40 min/LP, 24hrs/day).

    p.s.-[his name is actually “Mawhinney”]

    That’s some listening!

    I’m surprised there isn’t a record label interested in this. There must be a huge amount of great unknown music there which they could easily license.

    Thanks for spotting typo. Fixed now.
