Summer promotion banner 4-20

Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on (your) Head. Well , Don’t Let the Sun Catch you Cryin’. These two hits by Gerry and the Pacemakers and B.J. Thomas harmonize in red and black on Laurie and Scepter Records 45 rpm 7-inch singles.

Or…   set the mood at your summer BBQ or in your kitchen with a napkin holder that displays Bobby McFerrin’s Don’t Worry, Be Happy and C’est La Vie by Robbie Nevil. Both vinyl singles are on the bright, colorful, modern art-flavored Manhattan record label, together in a one-of-a-kind holder for napkins (or mail).

Custom holders are made with records you choose – $22 plus shipping/handling (approx. $7 for 2-day in U.S.). To order, email me at collidingvinyl@gmail.com with your selection and to verify shipping info and cost. PayPal or Venmo accepted. I can typically assure delivery  in 4 business days (two days to build, plus two days domestic shipping). Questions: post a comment here or email me.

Holders are 6 ¼” by 5 ½” by 1½.” Note: these are used records over 60 years old, with minor, visible wear on the labels and the record surface (see photos for condition). The lower third of the record is removed so it can be attached to the black wood base. I can also make bookends (inquire via email). Greeting cards used in photos not included.

Laurel Canyon is featured in two recent documentary films, one on the musicians and the scene, the other about David Crosby (a Cameron Crowe film).
Here’s my third in the series of tribute clocks (each with different records), with Joni Mitchell’s iconic Blue album (with the song “California.” showing). Also: “Helplessly Hoping” is the first 45 rpm single (the B-side of Marrakesh Express) from Crosby, Stills & Nash, who met at Mama Cass’s place in the canyon, but first sang together at Joni’s place nearby. Mamas and the Papas’ “I Saw her Again” single is included.

BTW: Crosby and Stills have different recollections where CSN met and sang first. Per the film, Crosby insists it was at Joni’s.

Adjacent to the canyon store, Jim Morrison rented a place (Door’s “Wishful Sinful”). Meanwhile, Carole King also lived in the canyon (see cover photos of her Tapestry and Music albums). Appropriate to the region, I’ve included the “I Feel the Earth Move” single.

The clock features tiered accent slices cut from black and orange 45rpm records (see close-ups). These are original issue records.

Hey dear friends. I’m doing an ”official” soft launch of my Colliding Vinyl store on Etsy this weekend.
https://www.etsy.com/shop/collidingvinyl
It’s got 11 custom pieces for you to peek at (with historical info about the records) – including 8 new card/letter/napkin holders built with selected 45 rpm singles. It’s been fun making individualized clocks for family and friends, and now I’d like to broaden it out to a wider audience, offering pre-made or made-to-order pieces. In the process, I’ll flex some social media marketing/automation muscles.

If you get a chance, please check out my Etsy store here to see all my listings. Classics from the 50s and 60s etc. Comments and suggestions welcome.
