We recently picked up an astonishing collection of records from a long time collector who was ready to move their items on to a new life. Starting back in the ’60s and ’70s, the collection contains many rare records from the time from artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, King Crimson and more. The collection also touches on the more experimental side of rock music, with records by Fuchsia, and the almighty Gong.
