Paul Mawhinney is a former paper salesman from Pittsburg. He is also the world’s most off the chain record collector. He currently maintains the largest record archive in the world – over 3 MILLION pieces, including thousands and thousands of albums and singles that were never transferred to CD/MP3. He popped up in the int’l press earlier this year when he announced that he needs to sell his beloved collection to the highest bidder. An e-bay auction took place, but the eventual winner (who’s high bid was (only) $3,002,150) couldn’t actually come up with the money, so it was ultimately voided.

Filmmaker Sean Dunne visited Paul at his meticulously organized record cave and made this. Amazing and sad.

Thanks to Jeremy for the tip. See you soon dude…
