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

Back when I used to frequent thrift stores and before I spent 15 years living in them (working 50 hours a week at a few), I always kept my eyes peeled for LPs that might be odd or a little off-kilter (kind of like me!).

That's when I discovered, in 1960s and 1970s releases, the "cash-in" craze -- the "cover connection," if you prefer.  That is, the attempts to make money by recording knock-offs of hit TV & movie theme songs or genres.

When Superman: The Movie and blockbusters like CEK, Star Wars, and others crested in popularity, disco and synthpop were also at a crest.  Hence, the plethora of upbeat arrangements of these themes.

Here is Supermusic, a compilation put together from these second-hand finds, along with lots of TV themes.

Here are the tracks:
1) Movie Theme - Walter Murphy
2) Superboy TV Theme
3) Superman - Herbie Mann
4) The Adventures of Superman TV Theme
5) Sound from Krypto / Movie Theme - Let's All Dance with Super Friends cassette
6) Superman the Animated Series TV Theme (extended)
7) The Batman / Superman Adventures TV Theme
8) Movie Theme - Gotham's Greatest
9) Comic Book Heroes / I'm Your Superman - Rick Springfield
10) The New Adventures of Superman TV Theme
11) The New Adventures of Superman Episode Title Music
12) The New Adventures of Superman TV End Credits
13) Movie Theme - Super Hero Music cassette
14) It's Superman - The Supermen
15) You've Got Possibilities - The Supermen
16) TV Theme - Ruby-Spears
17) Movie Theme - Cinema Sound Orchestra
18) The Superman / Batman Adventures TV Theme
19) Superboy TV Theme (Filmation cartoon)
20) SuperPup TV Theme
21) Movie Theme - Fleischer cartoons
