    Would you believe that there is a website devoted to Nimoy's musical output during the '60's & '70's? Yes, there is: Maiden Wine

    I guess that proves anyone can put anything on the internet.

    Yes, I've seen this before and if nothing else, it does have some good period photographs spread thoroughout the pages.

    I have "Outer Space, Inner Mind," but thankfully I no longer have a turntable.

    Believe it or not, the webmasters want all of Nimoy's albums on CD in a boxed set....:wtf:

    I've never actually heard Nimoy's music. Something tells me I'm not missing a whole hell of a lot.

    His rendition of the 60s classic "Sunny" (yesterday my life was filled with rain) is something that must be experienced. I haven't heard it in at least 20 years now, and it still haunts me.









    GET OUT OF MY HEEEAAAAD!!!!!!!!

    I think some brain soap is desperately needed at this time.

    And I never even HEARD Nimoy sing.

    Except for the row row row your boat thingy.

    Which is bad enough, when you think about it... :eek:

    Is it just me, or does Leonard Nimoy strike a uncanny resemblance to Zach Quinto on this LP cover? Or vice-versa of course!

    A little bit, I'd say.

    I wonder if Quinto will ever do an album of his own? and I wonder what it will sound like?:)

    While Nimoy's albums merely hurt your brain, Quinto's would cut your head open and remove it.

    He should re-record "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" and shoot a modern take on the classic video!!! Now that'd be entertainment!

    His singing was okay but so sixties. I'm into the crazy stuff but I don't think that I would have bought any of his music but I do know people out there who would have thought it pure art:eek:.

    Only if he re-records it as "The Power Ballad of Bilbo Baggins"--now that's something I would probably enjoy. :techman:
