Frank Zappa Vinyl Record Clock - Recycled from damaged album Lumpy Gravy, which is the debut solo album by Frank Zappa, written by Zappa and performed by a group of session players he dubbed the Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Symphony Orchestra. Zappa conducted the orchestra but did not perform on the album. It is his third album overall: his previous releases had been under the name of his group, the Mothers of Invention. It was commissioned and briefly released, on August 7, 1967, by Capitol Records in the 4-track Stereo-Pak format only and then withdrawn due to a lawsuit from MGM Records. MGM claimed that the album violated Zappa's contract with their subsidiary, Verve Records. In 1968 it was reedited and released by MGM's Verve Records on May 13, 1968. The final version of the album consisted of two musique concrète pieces that combined elements from the original orchestral performance with elements of surf music and the spoken word. It was praised for its music and editing. Produced simultaneously with We're Only in It for the Money, Zappa saw Lumpy Gravy as the second part of a conceptual continuity that later included his final album, Civilization Phaze III. ~~Wiki

This clock is painted with a Metallic Silver and has white hands. All clocks are hand painted by us. Every clock is unique and is the REAL vinyl clock, not something with just a label printed and pasted on.

**ALL OF OUR CLOCKS WERE DAMAGED AND NON PLAYABLE BEFORE WE PAINTED THEM. NO ACTUAL PLAYABLE VINYL WAS HURT IN THE MAKING OF ANY OF OUR ART. WE KEEP THEM OUT OF THE LANDFILLS BY CREATING UNIQUE LITTLE MASTERPIECES OUT OF EVERY PIECE THAT WE CAN.

***AA battery NOT INCLUDED. They are high torque movements so the battery can last up to 3 years.

****Clock Size is 12 x 12 inches Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to ask any questions or give any comments. Peace!
