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

You Can't Outrun Dracula's Deuce!

From a review for this 1964 Capitol Records album:

"The Ghouls was a Capitol Records in-band-name-only project of producer/songwriter Gary Usher (sometime co-writer with Brian Wilson in the early 60's) featuring Richard Polodor on guitar and Rick Burns on vocals. Rick Burns sings (or talk-sings in a style not too dissimilar to "Monster Mash") faux early Beach Boys songs like "Be True To Your Ghoul" and "Dracula's Deuce" which establishes the mid-60's campy horror theme of the album. These tracks do their job just fine in creating a silly throwaway novelty theme."

It's fun, even though the lead singer sounds a little TOO passionate in some of his groaning.
