Flanked by symphonic on Angel and RCA. Reds and rainbows. Moves top to bottom.
Streisand to Simon & Garfunkel to Kenny Loggins.
This isn’t a clock (yet); maybe just a wall piece. If it falls off that wall, however, it’ll end up in tiny pieces, because those two old 78 rpms on each end (Harmony Records) are brittle as heck.
I made this one, titled “Seventies Eclectic/Electric” for sis-and-bro in-laws Sheri and Gary Dale (Newhall California), as a Christmas 2012 gift. From Moody Blues and ELO, to Iron Butterfly and Elton John.
I haven’t gotten back to my 60′s music history audioblog yet, but lounging in my off hours in Seattle, and my love of the tactile vinyl (both LPs and 45s) has yielded a “craft” hobby. Collages. And some are ending up as clocks. I gave away two at Christmas. This one, titled“SoCal Cycle (Burbank Bikin’),” complete with 3D handlebars, now belongs to son Greg (and Ann) in L.A. Lots of Warner Brothers, plus Island records, and Mercury.
The Firesign Theatre, after all these decades, will no longer be complete. Sad news yesterday that Peter Bergman has died in Santa Monica. So glad I saw all four original members several months ago in Seattle, and last year in L.A.
I remember talking with him in Ann Arbor in the 70s, at WCBN-FM and at surroundings – he was the intellectual of the group, knowledgeable about everything from science to politics to, of course, the absurd. Just blogged with him last month – still pontificating delightfully at age 72. See last post for my tribute after the Seattle concert.
