The Archive of Contemporary Music is a remarkable institution. It is the largest collection of pop music in the US, with millions of LPs, CDs, 45s and other music-related material. When they have a 3rd copy of an item they put it in a pile and then sell the pile. The next sale is coming up. (BTW – some of you may remember the ARC head archivist, Fred Patterson (Phast Phreddie), from his stints at Rhino and at the Back Door Man fanzine)
