Unique gift for the Beatles connoisseur. This clock features the first/early solo works of John, Paul, George and Ringo, on Apple Records. Surrounding Paul McCartney’s first solo LP (Side One with “Maybe I’m Amazed” showing), there are original-release 45rpm singles of:

  • John Lennon’s “Imagine”
  • George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord
  • Beatles “Let it Be” (their last major single). The song is about Paul’s mum, who died when he was a teen-ager, but it’s also a kind of epitaph as they broke up the band.

Also:

  • Ringo’s first single Beaucoups of Blues (rare 7”33 1/3 rpm release)

For added dimension, I put hand-cut tiered slices of 45rpm records as ascents on many of my clocks, and you’ll see them on this one in the photo.\

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.
