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

NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL ... Electronic Music!

 On the back cover, this album is credited to "The Electrosoniks."  It was released with a different cover under the title Song Of The Second Moon: The Sonic Vibrations Of Tom Dissevelt & Kid Baltan in 1968.

But Electronic Music, the same album, was originally released in 1962 with this cover.

 
This music is fun and fascinating.  Especially since it's from the era of spliced tapes and wired circuits! There are eight tracks:

1)  Song of the Second Moon
2)  Moon Maid
3)  The Ray Makers
4)  The Visitor from Inner Space
5)  Sonik Re-Entry
6)  Orbit Aurora
7)  Twilight Ozone
8)  Pianoforte 

This is another secret pleasure from childhood ... Track 5, "Sonik Re-Entry," was grilled into my brain from early on.  KVOO, Channel 2 in Tulsa, used it as the title music for Fantastic Theatre, a late-Saturday-night monsters-and-SF-movie showcase.

Once a year or so, Fantastic Theatre would show King Dinosaur, a cheesy 1955 movie that I yearned for because it had DINOSAURS!  So, even though I was eight or so years old, Mom and Dad would allow me to stay up late to watch it.

This started me on a lifetime of bad habits, which culminated with Mazeppa Pompazoidi, Second City TV, and MadTV.

Whenever I hear "Sonik Re-Entry," I'm transported back in time to that mental or emotional age when life is an adventure and any good thing is possible!

WAIT A MINUTE -- that time is now!

Here's the music.

  1. Hello
    Just found your site - very interesting.
    Now for an ask - could you please re-up this album. It was sited by David Bowie as one of his favourites of all time and I can't find it anywhere else :-)
