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

The "Young Frankenstein" Score

Here's the wonderfully appropriate and evocative underscore for the great 1974 classic film Young Frankenstein,  The score by John Morris paints a perfect mind picture, through sound, of the tragic tale of a man who tries to escape his heritage but, through an unexpected inheritance, is forced to confront his family demons and make peace with them.

Since this is a bootleg, the tracks have no individual titles.

1-36:  Film Soundtrack Score
37:  Young Frankenstein Main Title (Album Version)
38:  Puttin' on the Ritz ((Album Version)
39:  Theme from “Young Frankenstein” - Rhythm Heritage (1975)
40:  Theme from “Young Frankenstein” - The Madeira (2010)

So, the first 36 tracks are from the film.  The next two tracks are from the 1978 release  Mel Brooks' Greatest Hits: The Music of John Morris , which I shared last year (Link:  High Anxiety).

The final two tracks are tribute performances of the "theme" from the film, the middle European lullaby by John Morris, a lovely melody.
