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

The Film Music of Hans J. Salter (1979 Double LP)

According to Discogs, "This limited edition album was produced in association with Salter Music Publishing Company. The selections are taken from the original acetate recordings in the composer's library and although filtered and equalized, the sound is below current high fidelity standards. The album is a custom product of Tony Thomas Productions, P.O. Box 1662, Burbank, California 91507."

Soundtrack has this page: -- however, the order of the tracks is ALL WRONG.

18. The Tide Stakes (1:47)
19. Operation Boomerang (1:15)
20. Rescue (5:24)
21. End Title (0:36)

I am only familiar with the score of Ghost of Frankenstein. but it's exciting in that these are the actual recordings heard in the films.

To me, most of the music on Disc 2 (Bend of the River was written for westerns; Against All Flags was a pirate movie) sounds like it's a twin to the Ghost of Frankenstein music -- lots of marching brass, angry tympani, howling strings. Really pretty strong stuff!

I also put together an art file for CD packaging.  You can find it here.

Here's your chance for some rip-snortin' fun!
