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

Re-Post - Two Albums of "Background Music" from Capitol

Another source of existential uneasiness in the 1950s ... how to keep your guests entertained with musical diversions neither intrusive not somnolent.

Capitol Records addresses this with a series of anthology albums pasted together from several of their contractees.  I found a couple of them and ripped and formatted them to fit onto one CD program.



I assembled the above "cover" from an image of the time matching fonts & layout of the originals.

Here are the original covers.
