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

Re:Post The Single Swingers

Very sneaky, no?  This 1964 LP wants you to make the mistake of thinking that it is a release by Ward Swingle's vocal group, The Swingle Singers.

Get it? this blue record is by the SINGLE SWINGERS, not the SWINGLE SINGERS.

Still, it's fun to listen to.

The lineup:

1 - Prelude For Organ Choral No 1
2 - Aria (from Suite in D Major)
3 - Cannon
4 - Bourree (from English Suite No 2)
5 - Fugue In D Major (from The Well-Tempered Clavier)
6 - Sinfonia (from Partita No 2)
7 - Largo (from Harpsichord Concerto in F minor)

As in the original post, I cannot resist the cheerfully fractured English of an online reviewer:

Chin Music! Grave Swingle Singers, Single Swingers what! Rare CD Cover in the scat chorus of Bach's B-class masterpieces!
I love make-believe from WYNCOTE label, has released a lot of strange record. Technique is to mimic the chorus is like but could not.  In such scat "BOURREE", "FUGUE IN D MAJOR" and "PRELUDE FOR ORGAN CHORAL NO.1", all 7 tracks on this disc! This sense of class B, irresistibly best!

And an irresistibly best class B to you all.

See you Thursday.
