Closure.

Earlier today I shipped off my collection of Pink Floyd-related, Eric Clapton, Queen and David Bowie bootlegs. They were purchased by someone who is a dealer in used bootlegs.

I kept my collection of ELP, Yes, Asia, Carl Palmer and King Crimson–because of my long standing affection for these artists. Like, since I was six years old, when the Trilogy album was newly released.

This doesn’t affect the operation of Purple Hippies. I still have (and am still collecting) Purple and Sabbath-related bootlegs, which I will continue to share here.

When I make a decision, I believe in executing fast. Just go.
