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).

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.

Got my 3D record-player-technology framed collages finished and hanging above our “American by Magnavox” console phonograph entertainment center (circle 1948), which now serves as a lazy-susan bar, along with the vintage bakelite table-top, also serving fine spirits. Brother Records 45 (Beach Boys) anchors vacuum tubes and knobs, while frame one below pays tribute with fragments of a 78rpm, 45 and LP.

Inside the bottom cabinet of the American – more LPs.

Tuesday Trippin’

Threshold Records label featured a great comet-swoop graphic. In this clock, added in my office, I work the blue-orange-yellow motif again, with a Moody Blues LP (including Tuesday afternoon) and a 45 of the Beatle’s Day Tripper.IMG_3693

This breezy little timepiece of mine hangs in my office.  Love to work those yellows and oranges with a some red vinyl accent.  The Kama Sutra Records label from the 60s was a gem.  Beatles, Dave Clark Five, Lovin’ Spoonful, and Bubble Puppy.

This was a one night inspiration.  Titled “Barry Only Has Eyes For You (Love Down Disco
Lane -the late 70s)”
or maybe it should be Third-Eye Crooner.  The two flanking 45s are Jump (For My Love) by the Pointer Sisters, and Shake Your Groove Thing by Peaches & Herb.  This clock is now owned by one my co-workers, Connie – who says it will be under the tree, gifted to her husband, come Christmas morn.

Lauren Canyon Music Mushroom (late 60’s, early 70s)

For Torben and Lauren Von Staden. Christmas 2013. On the “Ladies of the Canyon” center label – photos of Lauren, Aveline, and Joni Mitchell (all with long blond hair), plus Carole King, and some of Lauren’s friends/neighbors.
My most ambitious clock to date – includes records by the Canyon-dwellers (in the 60s) Jackson Browne, Crosby Stills and Nash, John Mayall, The Doors (Morrison), Frank Zappa, Mamas and the Papas. Plus a canyon created with many layers of album fragments.
