Leonard Nimoy Presents Mr. Spock's Music from Outer Space (1967)
Well, yesterday was the anniversary of when "Star Trek" (the original series) first aired on NBC - September 8, 1966 to be exact. In honor of that day, I am posting Leonard Nimoy's first album. I know this album has made the rounds many times before, but I decided to go ahead and share mine since I already had it digitized (it was one of the first ones I digitized, being the Star Trek fanatic that I am). You can find Leonard's four other albums on this blog, too, by clicking on one of the labels. Mr.Spock holds a special place in my heart - that was also the name of one of my dearly departed kitties (gone two years now). But I did have the pleasure of meeting Leonard Nimoy at a Star Trek convention several years ago (he signed my copy of "I Am Spock"!), and I was able to snap several photos of him. Also, back in college, we had this huge computer printout (remember the dot matrix printers?) of Mr.Spock posted on the wall of the computer science department office. I think that's what made me decide to major in computer science. It was the logical thing to do.
(BTW, the picture is one I found on the web. A lot of my album covers are in bad shape so I often use pictures I find on the web, or I just find better pictures than the ones I take with my old dinky 1.2 megapixel digital camera. Yeah, I know I need to get a new one.)
