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

We're Goin' Galactic, Baby!


Here we have a record from the umpteenth golden age of sci-fi cover recordings -- 1980, that it.

The cover is somewhat similar in style to the work of Chesley Bonestell for 2001: A Space Odyssey.  The artist signature looks like "Sam Galantree."

Anyway, here are the high-falutin' tracks:
01 - The Empire Strikes Back (Main Theme)
02 - Imperial March (Darth Vader
03 - Yoda
04 - Close Encounters (Main Theme)
05 - Star Wars
06 - 2001 (Main Theme)
07 - Cantina Band Theme (Star Wars)
08 - Star Trek (TV Theme)
09 - Superman (The Movie)
 
The execution is what you might expect if you gathered a bunch of session musicians and asked them to play music composed for a bigger ensemble.  You close-mike everything and lay on the drums and cymbals.

Anyway, it was a fun thrift-store find and it's fun to imagine your eyebrows seesawing as you listen. 

Have fun!
