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

Halloween Story of Horror



This little bit of fluff is on the Viderex label.  Interestingly, this disc is not listed on Discog's page for the company.

Of course, I wouldn't be proud of this one, either.  It's super-lame, made up of one 48-minute track which tells a "story."  To me it sounds as if somebody had a list of sound effects and tried to make up a story as the SFX played along.  I tried this practice when I was about twelve and received my first "cassette-corder.".  My attempt was pathetic, but I wasn't cruel enough to hope other people would pay me for it.

The Bootlegged Salem's Lot Soundtrack

Did you happen to watch the TV miniseries Salem's Lot in 1979?  It was truly a haunted houseful of creepy fun.



One shining attribute was its soundtrack, composed by Harry Sukman.  It dwelt heavily upon the Dies Irae motif, that cheerful little tune which should immediately bring thoughts of dread and impending doom to all who hear it.

I don't know the source of the bootleg; as I recall, a cassette tape of the music was found in somebody's dresser drawer.

If you like this, I urge you vehemently to buy the sanctioned CD.  Or, you can buy it on LP.

I can tell you, however, that a couple of the tracks on this version aren't the same on the commercial release.
