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

From the Aulde Sod ... Moore's Irish Melodies

This 1984 album is full of wonders.

The songs are:

01 - The Minstrel Boy
02 - Silent, O Moyle, Be the Roar of Thy Waters
03 - When in Death I Shall Calm  Recline
04 - Here We Dwell
05 - Lesbia Hath a Beaming Eye
06 - The Dirge / How Oft Has the Banshee Cried
07 - While Gazing on the Moon’s Light
08 - What the Bee Is to the Flow’ret
09 - Believe Me, If All These Endearing Young Charms
10 - The Harp That Once Through Tara's Halls
11 - How Dear to Me the Hour When Daylight Dies
12 - Oh! Doubt Me Not
13 - At the Mid-Hour of the Night
14 - It Is Not the Tear at This Moment Shed
15 - Fill the Bumper Fair
16 - Planxty Johnstone / Captain Magan
17 - My Gentle Harp
18 - ’Tis the Last Rose of Summer

Here's a contemporaneous review from The New York Times of this album.

While I can't condone the wanton sowing of wild oats, nor the indiscriminate worship of Bacchus, it must be said that this is fun stuff to listen to, especially in advance of St Paddy's Day.
