Wiesbaden, Germany: Harlekin Art Records /Tone Deaf Music Co, 1977
Standard 33rpm, LP in slipcase produced in an edition of 500 signed and numbered copies. A recording of concerts of an orchestra of instrumental automatons set in motion and then left alone: the instruments include a piano with a extended mechanical keyboard, shop-window puppets manipulated by hand, two small guitars, one shadow-object, three xylophones, four lyricas, two tambourines, four normal guitars, one large zither, two balalaikas, one sonia, and three children’s guitars. Motors and gravity are the mechanisms used by Jones to make the machines work. Signed on the inner record label as issued, the cover of this LP is a silkscreen from a drawing of one of his machines by Jones. Scarce. Very good condition in slightly marked cover.
