Nimoy had one or two songs AS Spock one on album. If only Kelley sang just ONE song as McCoy and made the song about Spock.....it would've been glorious.

That was the whole point. For most self-respecting musical artists back then, the album was considered an art form of its own, not just a collection of songs. You were supposed to sit down and listen to the sides all the way through. Track arrangement, lead-ins and -outs, and run-on tracks were all given consideration by the artist, and that's how they wanted you to listen to it.
Track sequencing is still an art form. It's sad to see that disappearing.

Re: Vintage Albums, LPs, Records

Was Kelley's "cover" photo shot out at Vasquez Rocks?

Even more difficult to find nowadays is James Doohan's 1969 album, "Songs a Drinkin' n Fightin'"

A fun album to play along with the likes of Mr. Spock's Music from Outer Space is Project: Comstock Music from Outer Space. http://www.317x.com/albums/c/frankcomstock/card.html

[QUOTE=ZapBrannigan;9002317]

Leonard Nimoy mixed a little humor into his albums deliberately, but he was serious about his singing voice. He put out a surprising number of LPs. I have the Varese CD of Mr. Spock's Music that has bonus tracks from The Two Sides LP.

While this material is worlds away from Shatner's album, it too is quite good. The instrumentals have to be taken as very '60s vintage, very hipster, rather than very dated, but give him that and you're off and running.






For more info on all of Leonard's Albums please visit http://www.chaseclub.com/records.html

He recorded more albums than the Beatles you know...

DeForest Kelley's LP was so unknown to me that when I learned of its existence, I wondered if it was an Internet mockup. A lot of fake LP covers get created in Photoshop. But this is real. I just haven't heard it. Anybody?

"It's a faaaaake."

The front photo is culled from an old clothing ad with De and Bill. Also.
I was just going to chime in with the same thought, I remember when TMP came out that PEOPLE magazine or some other glossy weekly had an Arrow shirt ad with those two at Vasquez that had us all cracking up at the time.

But it's fun to imagine MUSKRAT LOVE somehow being even worse than the original version. "Muskrat's dead, Jim."

Okay, well, by that standard, the Beatles recorded 117 albums if you consult this webpage, or even more depending on how exhaustive a list you want to hunt up.

I program my CD player to stop half way through Kind of Blue and Miles Ahead. Turning the record over and the first cut of side 2 is a new beginning, and Act II. And NO playing bonus tracks after the album-as-intended: SO anticlimactic and disrespectful to the artists/producers who labored on these treasures. YMMV.

I'm not a huge Tom Petty fan, but I appreciated that he did this:

I still play Nichelle Nichols's Down to Earth music album twice a year or so at work. If memory serves, it was released during TOS's first season. You might consider it ''Uhura'''s first solo act. But I never got around to her 1990s CD. (Out of This World?)

Then there's Mr. Spock's Music from Outer Space, a mixed bag to be sure, but a bit longer than Transformed Man.
At least she could sing and sing well, unlike the other two, and had a contract with Epic.
