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

Gypsy Violins, Vol 3

From 1960, it's music to make your heart swell and your wallet shrink. (Pretty proud of myself I am, to have come up with that sentence.)  Discogs page is here.

The cover art looks so clean and crisp here, because I had to play with it after scanning.

At times, you'll say to yourself, "This music sounds as if it escaped from a 1960s Cold War spy movie" -- Track Two.

Or, "This music escaped from a 1960s art film in which the characters do nothing but sit across the room from each other and speak impenetrable analogies" -- Track Seven.

Or, "This music sounds as if it escaped from a 1940s werewolf movie" -- the first 30 seconds of Track Five.

Or -- if you're like me, you'll listen to Track Six, "Two Guitars," and notice that at no time do you hear any guitars!

And you'd be right!  Still, this is lots of fun if you're in the right mood.  Some surface noise is still present, because this was an LP not in great shape.  But still worth a dance.
