Zero Freitas, the owner of a successful Brazilian bus line is apparently buying up all the records in the world. A hobby during his adolescence has no become an obsession. His success in business has left him with the opportunity to purchase and house vast quantities of vinyl. The New York Times recently profiled Freitas and upon further examination, he’s certainly not doing this for attention — in fact, he employs a buyer to acquire these vinyl collections to keep his own name under wraps. As it stands, he’s got a several million vinyl records, all of which he stores in a warehouse and employs a team of people document and organize the collection. They also did a calculation – if Freitas were to stop buying records today, it would take about 20-years to log and organize all the vinyl. Ultimately, his goal is to turn this all into a public listening house of sorts which could make him a hero for music heads all over the globe.
