World's largest vinyl collection

So I found this video the other day about a guy who has the world's largest record collection.
The Archive on Vimeo
Kind of a sad video, especially one thing that they mention; only 17% of the music he has from the ~40's to ~60's is available on CD. It makes you wonder about all the rare music he has(from any era) that may never be heard again.
But who would have the capital and storage means to buy it? I would love to see it go to some sort of project (similar to the library archiving) where the music that's isn't available on CD (or any current format) is converted to digital. At least for preservation...
