by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

The vinyl collection of the late Dennis Hopper is for sale … for $150,000.

Hopper’s daughter Marin is selling the 110 title collection. That’s right, 110 albums for $150,000 works out to around $1363 per title.

Marin isn’t even guaranteeing the condition of the collection citing “condition as is” is the sales notes.

The titles aren’t even that collectible with popular Simon and Garfunkel, Jefferson Starship, The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Fleetwood Mac making up the collection. However, many of the titles have handwritten notes to the actor from the artists. One title is a personalized version of ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ by its composer Carl Perkins.

At Marin’s website it states:

With a career spanning almost six decades as an actor, filmmaker, photographer, artist ,art collector and Hollywood enfant terrible, Dennis Hopper collected over 100 record titles during his lifetime. Including iconic artists and bands such as The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Fleetwood Mac, Leonard Cohen and Miles Davis, this collection provides an incredible view into the world of one of America’s most culture-defining men. Along with handwritten notes to the actor from various artists and several unreleased records, this is a very personal biography of Dennis Hopper’s musical journey, directly from the archive of Dennis’ daughter, Marin Hopper.

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.
