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

Gipsy Band

Erno Kalli Kiss Jr is a big name in Gypsy Music, as far as I can tell.  This is another thrift store cassette treasure.  My heart always starts beating a little louder when I see a label and can't read it!  This means that adventure may await!

These are medleys of "Gipsy" tunes, I guess traditional Hungarian stuff.  What struck me, on listening, is that many of these selections sound to me like five-minute-long introductions that never "kick off" into an actual theme or melody!  It's kind of like a piano accompanist playing those glissando "vamps" but never getting around to the song.

Still, very interesting.  The track listings below are my transcriptions of the verr-rr-rry interesting titles from the cassette liner.  It seems to lose a lot without all the phonetic typesetting curlicues.  But you can see those on the CD insert back, where I've included the cassette label insert.
