I attended the LA Art Show over the weekend, held in downtown LA at the convention center. This, a Red Raven Magic Mirror playing on a vintage kiddie turntable was on display as art. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to discern whether or not the record being spun (and animated, for those of you who may not be familiar with the magic mirror) was one of the many commercial Red Raven records, or (maybe, he said hopefully) a creation of the artist who displayed the work. If anyone can provide more information I’ll do a followup post!

1959 on Capitol Records.
After looking for this LP for quite some time, I finally found it this morning at an estate sale for a dollar.
