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

Enchantingly Diabolical!

This guy named Francois Duchable decided he would perform Liszt's piano transcription of Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, adding in a few of his own flourishes.

The LP had a different cover from this, but I went with this illo.

The five tracks are, of course (in that heathen Frenchie talk):
1. I. Reveries - Passions
2. II. Un Bal 
3. III. Scene Aux Champs 
4. IV. Marche Au Supplice 
5. V. Songe D'une Nuit Du Sabbat 

So we've got Berlioz, PLUS Liszt, plus a maniac pianic (that's a new word) and the Dies Irae tumbling downstairs like an out-of-control bowling ball.

I like it!

See you Monday.
