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

Havin' a Psychedelic Birthday!

...if by psychedelic you mean I get to walk a mile and a half, do sit-ups and push-ups, and have grandkids crawl on me.

This CD came in as a donation to our thrift store about ten years ago.  It never sold, so after being marked down and processed, it was up-for-grabs, as in "destined for the dumpster."  So I rescued it.

This is the cover art.  The physical disc was just a CD-R with "Psychedelic Sixties" written in Sharpie.  The back insert had the songs & artists written in ink.

As far as I can tell, THIS IS NOT AN "OFFICIAL" COMPILATION.  I've done several searches of permutations of the title "Psychedelic Sixties" and haven't come up with a match.

Whoever put this together had great musical taste for giving the listener a taste of madness, desire, and ... goofiness.

The current disc and rear CD insert art are my own.

 Man, "the Psychedelic Sixties" sounds like a nightmarish place, but it's fun to listen to it for 80 minutes at a time!

Time to Trip!

(and yes this happens to be my natal anniversary)
