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

Startin' the Year Off with Bump ... and a Grind!

Tonight...A Funfilled Party Program From The Golden Age Of Burlesque Featuring The Pulsating Rhythms Of--"Bald" Bill And His Trocaderons...A Rollicking Show For The Pleasure Of All Who Enjoy The Gentle Art Of The Strip-Tease.

I came across the top album, Music to Strip By, in one of the neighborhood thrift stores and snapped it up.  It was so much fun that I had to track down the second one, too!

Music to Strip By is from 1966.  Music for a Strip Tease Party is from 1967.  They are a lot of fun, I think!  And, to my mind, that is the great selling point of burlesque (of which the strip is only a part).  It's an entertainment medium that's aware of life's silliness and isn't afraid of self-mockery.

Included is a PDF insert of the rear art, liner notes, & art.

Silly strut, silly thumpin' beat, silly to be so moved by fabric being draped and undraped!  But, acknowledge your human weaknesses and enjoy life!
