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

Golden Barbershop Ballads

This is a cassette originally issued in the mid 1960s, I believe.  To my mind, I wish the performanes wre a little LESS golden.  Maybe a little raggedness here and there would make it sound less like an insulated recording studio and more like a barbershop.

Nevertheless, it's fun music.  Here's what Billboard magazine had to say in 1965:

Here are the numbers included:

01 - When You're A Long, Long From Home - Four Hearseman
02 - Little Pal - The Rascals
03 - My Ideal - The Gala-Lads
04 - A Little Street Where Old Friends Meet - Sun Tones
05 - I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen - Easternaires
06 - Did Your Mother Come From Ireland - Play Tonics
07 - For Me And My Gal - Sidewinders
08 - Love Me and the World Is Mine - Lads of Enchantment
09 - Cabin On The Hilltop - Play Tonics    
10 - That Old Gang Of Mine - Four Pitchikers
11 - Danny Boy - Easternaires
12 - Down By The Old Mill Stream - The Rhythm Counts

And here is the link:
