Musee Mecanique LP

The music on this album is so beautiful. The songs are recorded directly from machines at the Musee Mecanique in San Francisco, which houses several antique music players and arcade machines. And by antique, I mean that some are over 100 years old and a lot are at least 70 years old. There are newer models as well, but the real charm of the place is to feel as if you've stepped into a seaside entertainment center from the early 20th century.

The screen printing on the album art is really beautiful too. It features Laughing Sal, who seems to be the mascot for the place. Put some coins in her box and she laughs and laughs. You can hear her laughter here!

What will I do with it?
Sell it here! I'll have to buy the cds instead, because there's no room for albums in my future life.
