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

The Electrosoniks

Somebody on rateyourmusic.com said of this album,

"I was shocked to discover the back-story about this album; it being recorded in 1962 (the title track in '57!). Talk about ahead of it's time! Judging it by 1968 standards (it's U.S. release date), this is electronic driven prog/psych instrumentals, with strong exploitation flavor, a few horns, and with a few soundtrack style cuts."

It has also been released as Song of the Second Moon, but the title was originally just Electronic Music.

It's fun and quirky and oh-so-retro, like a boiled-down soundtrack to Forbidden Planet.  But it will always hold a place in my heart as one of the featured title music themes of Tulsa Channel 2's Fantastic Theatre, hosted by the German-sounding Peter Hart in the 1960s.  (The other theme song was "Quiet Village.")  So whenever Mom allowed me to stay up late on Saturday night to watch a dinosaur movie at 10:30PM, this was the magic music I heard.  Track 5, "Sonik Re-Entry," is the one used on TV.

Here are the tracks:
1) Song of the Second Moon
2) Moon Maid
3) The Ray Makers
4) The Visitor from Inner Space
5) Sonik Re-Entry
6) Orbit Aurora
7) Twilight Ozone
