Greetings from Vinylandia...


Mr. Chadwick here with a new blogspot chronicling  finds and fascinations that lie just beyond the above pictured door. Uncovering those hidden treats that flow through the vast sea of vinyl platitudes that Amoeba Hollywood attracts, as well as many of my own personal treasures.  As things progress I hope to bring you more in-depth histories of the odd and curious private press and small label houses that the City of Angels has produced, but for now we'll start with some simple entertainment... found artwork.... Specifically artwork that was spontaneously created under the "influence" of the very object within which the said art piece was unearthed...

First up a nice trio of interpretations of very famous photos of a very famous UK pop group...

Here we have a very inspired George and Paul, outlined from a white album photo...

    


By far the most effective of the trio, a very different Ringo than we are used to... John got lost somewhere along the line...or maybe his being left out was some sort of message from the artist...
























Beginning our next series, also inspired by the Fab 4, is a batch of potential fonts for a B/O compilation, ink-pen & marker on inner sleeve...The "Taxman" heavy metal font might have worked well for Rockwell had he decided to release his version as a single...







The next piece is an intense psych-o-delic trip, inspired by LA's one and only DOORS...




Spray paint and Ink-pen on the back of the "LA Woman" inner sleeve....




Our final finding for today is slightly different but in my opinion just as inspired as the above pieces... it falls into the "home made lyric sheet" category.  Found in a copy of  Amoeba REGULAR "Weird" Al Yankovic's 3-D album, typewritten and then dot matrix printed lyric for Eat it...Bon Apetit...
