The world goes mad for Astronauts when Yuri Gagarin reaches orbit in his Vostok spacecraft and the USA launches Project Apollo. The AMi designers took notice and this AMi ‘Continental II’ Jukebox is clearly showing it’s 1960’s space age credentials
Ami flew into the modern age by making this their first Stereo-Round jukebox and so entered the world of Stereo Hi Fi sound. With its speakers designed to make full use of a corner position and the curved title panel hovering above the visible mechanism operating under it’s glass bubble, this is a stunning design classic.
Maybe it’ll be playing Telstar by The Tornadoes… Released in 1962, the same year as this AMi beauty… That would be perfect.
