Leonard Nimoy Space Odyssey

Nine Tracks from previously recorded DOT Albums

The Pickwick folks who bought the masters didn't even bother proof-reading the jacket notes:

He wore pointed ears and a very straight face, showed no emotion and lived by logic. That was Spock, the executive officer who was second billed and best loved in the "Star Trek" cast.

For a moment, remember this was in the days when a moon shot was still considered science fiction, now try to imagine an actor like Leonard Nimoy being called on to portray a man from Vulcan. Even further removed from reality must have been the intellect that created the series; and the producer who must have had to approach monied interests for support in backing the shows. Now think of the probable reaction from television personnel.

By now, several years of "Star Trek" have been loged (sic) into the tv history books, and though the show is currently in re-runs, its concept remains fresh, and the points of view that were presented in material and through Spock are now even fresher for they are the makings of tomorrow's news.

The character of Spock also remains a figure of time yet to be. But his thoughts and the stories as interpreted by Leonard Nimoy are for today as much now as when he performed his exec-officer role. The cool mental perception and dramatic style belong to visionaries as grist and to interested listeners as entertainment and example.

The brain processes personified in Spock turned him into a powerful image-figure for televiewers. So much is this so that it is now difficult either to disassociate Nimoy with the character, or for Nimoy to top his dramatization even with such a potentially great fugure (sic) as Paris, whom he now portrays on "Mission: Impossible."

In this album, Spock talks in tales and pointers which were originally precognitions visualized when Apollo was itself in infancy. And delight in the stories for the retained power they show for our present.

Since the time when man first neared his possibility of landing on the moon and considering a visit to the stars, Leonard Nimoy has left his role as a citizen of the universe and headed back into our solar system with comtemplations of its denizens.

Now, that he has made his landing in Paris, his recorded voyages retain their validity. Welcome to the universe of Spock, now the man of rounded ears.
