This is a recycled Beatles vinyl record clock. Per Wiki, "Controversy surrounded the album's artwork, which featured an embossed colour portrait of The Beatles against a shiny silver background, with the album's title spelled out in what is presumed to be neon lights. Symbols of the 1950s were used on the inside of the album's gatefold sleeve, including a jukebox, an outdoor movie screen with a picture of Marilyn Monroe, an ice cream, a 1957 Chevrolet, a cheeseburger, and a glass of Coca-Cola. 1950s nostalgia was at a peak around the time the album was released and Capitol was clearly attempting to cash in on the trend. As The Beatles were a 1960s band, the album cover prompted Ringo Starr to complain to Rolling Stone: "It made us look cheap and we never were cheap. All that Coca-Cola and cars with big fins was the Fifties!" Lennon was also critical of the artwork and wrote an angry letter to Capitol Records saying it "looks like a Monkees reject" and instead suggested the use of photos by Astrid Kirchherr or Jürgen Vollmer, both of whom had photographed the band during their Hamburg days.[4] Lennon had also offered to design the cover himself, but was declined.[5]" This album was released on June 7th, 1976. This is side 2.

The paint used is red paint. This clock 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
