When I read about the recent El Al fiasco in Athens, I thought about an unforgettable trip I once had going to Israel via Greece. It was 1983, I had just released MBD’s “Just One Shabbos,” and I received an order from a company in Israel for 3,000 records. (Those were the round vinyl discs that were around even before cassettes.) Up until then, producers would sell the rights to their albums and they would be manufactured in Eretz Yisrael. In this case, we sold the album per piece, agreeing on a price of $9,000 for the 3000 albums, which was a nice sum of money in those days.
