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.
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.
PRESS THE ARROW ABOVE TO HEAR IT. “Always” 2:30.
My a cappella cohorts on Beacon Hill (Seattle). SATB. Here’s a sweetened mix of us doing “Always.” Gang – mix is a little low for the soprano part, but it’s the best song we rough recorded the other night during rehearsal.

This isn’t a clock (yet); maybe just a wall piece. If it falls off that wall, however, it’ll end up in tiny pieces, because those two old 78 rpms on each end (Harmony Records) are brittle as heck.
