Leonard Nimoy Presents Mr. Spock's Music From Outer Space

Originally released in 1967, Nimoy's first album was comprised of Space Age instrumentals, spoken word poetry songs and full vocal arrangements. Nimoy co-wrote track six with arranger and producer Charles Grean, who is largely responsible for the high quality of this record.

The album utilizes the popularity of the Spock character on Star Trek and it seems likely that the main audience is children who where fans of the television series. The songs contain many outer-space elements complete with science fiction-themed narrations.

The album was also heavily promoted, and fans by the thousands flocked to his autograph signings and appearances. There was a single released and contests appeared in popular magazines. Nimoy was quickly becoming a teen idol.

The record is extremely enjoyable on an adult level as well. Many of the tracks are done in the 60s Space Age lounge style adopted by many of the performers and conductors of the era.

Stand out tracks: Theme From 'Star Trek', Alien, and Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Earth.
