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

Re-Post: The Silly Surfers, Weird-Ohs, and Other Scrum

One of the fun confluences of culture was in the 1960s when surfer-type music, a wacky artist-designer nicknamed "Big Daddy Roth," and some smart-alecky musicians got together to cash in on a craze.

This is a compilation of four LPs on two discs.

Also included are images of the back of the LPs whenever I had them, as PDFs that are measured so you can print & cut them for inserts to the CD case. 

The last LP, by "The Silly Surfers" and "The Weird-Ohs" -- each had one side of the LP -- had a lyrics sheet, so that is enclosed also.

The last LP enjoyed using sounds to imitate hair growing to open and close each side of the LP.  (it was supposedly released on "Hairy Records").

Here is a link to a nice guy's earlier post about this music and the wacky art of "Big Daddy" Roth.  Of course his music links are dead.

These are not!
