Dennis Hopper‘s record collection is for sale on fashion website Moda Operandi for £129,600.
According to Fact, the 110 items include albums by The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Fleetwood Mac, Leonard Cohen and Miles Davis – “along with handwritten notes to the actor from various artists and several unreleased records”.
Among the more unusual items are a 1970 recording of “Blue Suede Shoes” that Carl Perkins made specifically for Hopper as a gift from musician Zack Van Arsdale.
Described as “a very personal biography of Dennis Hopper’s musical journey”, the collection was supplied by Hopper’s daughter Marin, and a portion of the sale price will be donated to The Future Heritage Fund, “which was founded in partnership with the New Mexico Community Foundation (NMCF) to support a range of cultural and artistic non-profit organizations in New Mexico”.
