Curvy Tone Arms: Like a Fine Automobile

May 5, 2007

Automotive Look Voice of Music 920 Steelman BSR Tone Arm

The tone arm on this 1953 Voice of Music record player (left), as well as this 50’s Steelman BSR record player arm (right), have curvy “hood and fender” appeal. Both are standing by for those Sinatra platters, or some hot BeBop to inspire that horizontal ShBoom up in the guest bedroom.

NAME THAT GATEFOLD

Joni Mitchell Mingus

This evolutionary singer/songwriting artist paid homage to an ailing jazz great (bassist, bandleader) in her1979 album named after him. 6-page album cover. Jaco updates the bass in the band.

My thanks for the Voice of Music player photo from a great site for radios and phonographs: Radiophile.
