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

"Background Music" Series


You'll have to read for yourself the liner notes for these two albums, Background Music: Light and Lively, and Background Music: Songs for Harmonizing.  They are all enclosed in the file you're going to download.

Suffice it to say that these albums were presented for a specific demographic, the Anxious Party Host.  They're basically compilation albums of tracks by Capitol artists, assembled to enhance social interaction.



The CD cover art shown above is a reconstruction of mine for a possible album in the series that would contain both of the LPs.  Original album art is of course also included.

Click alert!  There are a few ticks in a couple of tracks.  Remember, these are ACTUAL RECORDS with sound waves pressed into plastic and relayed by a needle ... So please be gracious with any intrusions.
