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 King of Elfland's Daughter

I came across  a promo copy of this 1977 LP in a record shop that used to be a laundromat, on Blackwelder Ave in OKC, right across from OCU.

The art looks like Brian Froud's work, but it's by a fellow named Jimmy Cauty.  But it wasn't the cover art which grabbed me, it was the title.  You see, I'd recently read the Ballantine reprint of the wonderful novel by Lord Dunsany.

How can you go wrong with such a project, mounted by members of Steeleye Span ... with Christopher Lee as narrator and the King of Elfland, with Mary Hopkin as the Princess?

1.  The Request (3.23)

5.  The Rune of the Elf King (3.59)
6.  The Coming of the Troll (1.53)
7.  Just Another Day of Searching (5.09)
8.  Too Much Magic (3.58)
9.  Beyond the Fields We Know (4.29) 

Here's a page from Mainly Norfolk which has more info, and the lyrics.
