Custom gift for Eric Summer (via Cass). Beatles (Abbey Road), Stones, Who …and importantly, Strawberry Alarm Clock.  Began using tilt angles on the 45rpm singles to give it a kinetic feel.

Finished the first of the new breed of Laurel Canyon artists clock. Joni (featuring her Ladies of the Canyon album), Carole King, Mamas and Papas and Doors first single Light My Fire. Photos: all at their places in the Canyon in the late 60s (Carole’s shot was during the photo shoot for the Tapestry cover). I’ll have to do Crosby, Stills and Nash in the next clock since they formed at Mama Cass’s place. Click on the clock photo for a better look at the records.

Latest clock is custom for OverTones friend and wonderful photographer Cass Summer. She wanted all California, so the Doors first album anchors it, with Beach Boys and others weighing in around the periphery. And “A Summer Song.” And I’m enjoying the beautiful “mystery meadow” scene in an enlargement from Cass’s work.

This was the simplest clock I’ve ever made. Just Frank on his own Reprise label, framed by a turntable ring from a proper-vintage tabletop phonograph.  Still offered 16rpm.  If we could just get that ghosted dude out of the reflection.

Dan Nachison procures a Colliding Vinyl Timepiece at our OverTones concert – the clock is my tribute to the British Invasion, with singles by the Beatles (I Wanna Hold Your Hand), Dave Clark Five, Stones, Who, Herman’s Hermits, all on an Animals LP. Dan is a great supporter of our group.

The Fab Four had only been successful, modestly, in the U.K (with their first single, Love Me Do) when the John Lennon composition “Please Please Me” was recorded – with heavy influence from producer George Martin, who had them speed up the song. It became their first single released in the U.S., in early 1963, and included on their first U.S. album release.  Both are here in this clock.

Here’s proud owner (purchased at our OverTones concert).
