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

The Kynge's Musicke

PSST ... tell the Kynge that if he ever wants to hear his music again, he'll pay the ransom ...

This is, as advertised, "Instrumental Music of the Tudor Court from Henry VIII to Elizabeth I."  And like most such fine music from this era, it has enough familiarities to be easily understood and liked; yet it's different enough from "modern" melodic and chord progressions to catch our ear for something distinctive.  I like it!

Another great LP from ProMusica.
