Leonard Nimoy - The Way I Feel (1968)


Well, since I've already posted three of my five Leonard Nimoy albums, I figured I might as well finish out the lot. I didn't post the very first album because, as I mentioned in the post for "The Touch of Leonard Nimoy", someone else already had it and I listed that link. But, if y'all want me to, I can go ahead and record my album and post it - just let me know! Today, I'm posting "The Way I Feel", which is probably my favorite of his folksy albums. I particularly like his version of "If I Had a Hammer". You're going to think I'm really weird (well, you probably already think that), but this version gets me all teary-eyed when he starts speaking towards the end - I think I start feeling all patriotic and stuff so I get all emotional. I don't know - maybe it 's just the menopause. Anyway, here's another to add to your Leonard Nimoy collection! (No cool liner or track notes on this one.)

Track listing for Leonard Nimoy - The Way I Feel:

Side 1:
1. I'd Love Making Love to You
2. Please Don't Try to Change My Mind
3. Sunny
4. Where It's At
5. Both Sides Now
6. If I Had a Hammer

Side 2:
1. Here We Go 'Round Again
2. Billy Don't Play the Banjo Anymore
3. It's Getting Better

Hi there! Evidently I deleted your email by mistake! I found a pic wanted to send you, and I can't remember where it was from, so I can't leave the link either. Can you email me so I can send it to you?
I hope you are well, getting settled in your new home, and that I hear from you soon.
Peace,
Zilla

Thanks for sharing your Leonard Nimoy albums. I was especially interested in the Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy. As a fellow trekker, I remember all the great times I enjoyed ST-TOS. I don't know if you have it, but I used to have an 8-track tape of the double album "Outer Space - Inner Mind" which encompasses many of the tracks on several of the albums you shared. Isn't the internet great? Thanks again.

The MP3's from "The Way I Feel" have a piercing high-frequency pitch to all of the songs. Can that be fixed? Thanks for all of the amazing albums.

Hi, Clay,

I just went back and listened to my recording of the album on my computer (which is what I uploaded to Megaupload), and I don't hear that high-pitched sound. I'm playing it on iTunes and it sounds just fine. I would have to re-record the album but there's no guarantee that it would be any different. If you do a Google search, you'll see that others have also posted this album. You might try one of those to see if it's any better.
Thanks for stopping by!
