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

Columbia Special Products Presents ...

Yep, in the golden age of the tie-in, Columbia Special Products produced this far-ranging conglomeration of various Columbia signees in "spy mode."

You can call it cheese ... you can call it silly ... or you can call it AWESOME!

1)  Percy Faith - Thunderball   
2)  Mel Tormé - Secret Agent Man   
3)  Village Stompers - From Russia With Love   
4)  John Barry - The James Bond Theme   
5)  David Lloyd - 007   
6)  Bobby Vinton - Goldfinger   
7)  John Barry - Ipcress File   
8)  Ray Conniff - Third Man Theme   
9)  David Lloyd - On Her Majesty's Secret Service   
10)  Orchestra U.S.A. - The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Yep, Track 2 is the Velvet Fog himself singing a tune for John Drake the Danger Man.  And perpetual Chipmunk-soundalike Bobby Vinton singing "Goldfinger" is about as sinister as a pair of cotton-candy handcuffs.

OK, I'll call it "cheesy" too.  But don't say it's not

See you Monday!
