I have dealt in collector records as a business for about 35 years and I know the guy who bought the record. He's a nice guy and very interested in preserving old recordings like this. He even unearthed some of the old promotional artwork for a lot of these records that are simply amazing.

I have a couple of Paramount race series 78's in my collection, a couple of blues and one black gospel, and they're beat to hell and barely play but I can't let them go. There's just something about a record from the 1920's that was intended only for black consumers that is just too cool.

My parents had a ton of 78s up in the attic.  I remember seeing one that was called "Terraplane Blues".  My first question, being a wee lad, was "What's a Terraplane?".  Dad was a mechanic, so he told me all about the old Terraplane cars, how they were built by Hudson.  Never thought much about it, until I was older.  Yeah, Robert Johnson.  On the Vocalion label.  I can still see this image in my brain, plain as day.  It's worth at least a couple grand.  NO IDEA what happened to the boxes of 78s.
