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.

Layered vinyl tiers flank the triangle in Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, the iconic album that kept selling steadlily decade after decade.  Jen is the proud purchaser (for a friend) at our OverTones-thrown concert last week.

3D with tiers of LP wedges, and orange vinyl accenting the Warner Bros. “Burbank” record label on this clock for buddy and singing comrade Daniel Graves – a tribute to his favorite group Tower of Power, on the evening last month that we went to see them in Beverly Hills.  The Tower needs some repairs – prayers for two members of the group in the hospital after being struck by a train.  Not funky.

For music-lovin’ friend Jeff Snyder, last year.  Once a news writer, and more recently a communications colleague, we’ve shared new and old music and been to some great shows here in L.A. This string of titles reads like a cryptic, prophetic prognostication.  (Deep, deeply deep).

Eve of Destruction, the Animals,  Jeff’s Truth,  and killing the witch.

Catching up on some previously made clocks over last couple of years.  This one for my longest-running friend, Mark (Michigan/Florida) and his wonderful wife Deb. We were music-jammin’ buddies back in high school, trying to impress the girls with guitar (Mark), string bass (me) and harmonizing on James Taylor songs and folkie stuff. Leo Kottke too.
