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

Somebody Else's Music Compilation: Psychedelic Sixties

One of the great things about working at a thrift store is seeing all of the random bits of wonderfulness amongst the 99.9% of crap.

This CD was an anonymous donation that I accessed because nobody bought it, and it outlived its allotted shelf life.  I intercepted it on its way to the dumpster.

This is a comp that somebody put together.  It was a CD-R with "PSYCHEDELIC SIXTIES" written in Sharpie on it.  I ripped the CD so as to add CD-text (from the hand-written track list) to the tracks.  I added disc and CD rear insert art.  I hope you like it -- I do!

Man, this is fun, way-out stuff!

One of the great things about art is being able to experience the fruit of the artist's travails without having to live through those travails yourself.  So, these songs are as close as I want to get to the psychedelic side of the Sixties.
