Yes, that is Spock in the headphones. The year was 1979. These are some of my LPs, themed compilations, and the like.

Horror Sounds of the Night

This cassette was sold on a blister card.  I did some work and created CD art after dubbing.
Both sides of the cassette are identical, but I recorded each of them anyway as Track One and Track Two.

I've seen references to this as having been released in 1974 or 1986.  Here is the Discogs page for it.

CD Creepies

This thrift-store find was unusual in its packaging.  The image you see above was folded and inserted into the CD case.  As you can tell, it has been trimmed on the left side.  This piece looks like the topper of a small countertop display that would hold the CDs for sale.

The label says it's "3-in-1 audio fun!"  That's because there's a block of stock music which is mostly effective; a group of sound effects; and a "Monster Story" at the end.

The track groupings break down this way:

1)  Contata and Fugue     
2)  Frenzy #1
3)  Torment  
4)  Psycho
5)  Private Lab  
6)  The Unexpected
7)  Night on Bald Mountain
8)  Angel of Death
9)  The Devil Rides    
10)  Lucifer's Choir
11)  Troubled Voices
12)  Sinister Street
13)  Spinecharge
14)  Omen
15)  Marked Man
16)  Sleeper Awaits
  time 33:25

17)  Thunder and Rain
18)  Bats Flying in Cave
19)  Electric Lab
20)  Mad Man Laugh
21)  Witch's Laugh
22)  Church Bell Toll
23)  Wolf Howl
24)  Owl Hoot
