For The Vinyl Afficionado On Your List: Dennis Hopper’s Record Collection
Dennis Hopper may have climbed the curtain and joined the choir invisible more than six years ago, but his legacy lives on — and so do his microgrooves. Hopper’s unique record collection is up for sale — but you’ll need fairly deep pockets.
His entire vinyl collection has been offered via the high end fashion retailer Moda Operandi; the records were furnished by Hopper’s daughter Marin, who also sells her own fashions on the site.
110 records comprise the collection, which is actually not that many when you look at the asking price. However, the fact that many of the records are accompanied by hand-scrawled notes from the artists to Hopper makes it unique; it also contains some unreleased albums.
As for the selection, it’s fairly mainstream: you’ll find music from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Fleetwood Mac, Van Morrison, Miles Davis and Leonard Cohen, among others. What’s that? You say you found a spare $US110,000 ($CAN147,651.90) down the couch? Giddy-up.
