Spaced out
Spaced Out

February 18, 2002

Things are relatively slow in the world of recorded Star Trek music (still no word on an Enterprise soundtrack) so here's an odd Star Trek-related project recorded by William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. Spaced Out: The Very Best of Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner is a collection of material recorded by the good captain and his first officer during the late 1960's. As to why anyone would suggest they do such a thing, and to why they did do such a thing, I have no idea! The material includes Shakespeare, The Beatles and Tolkien. Buyer beware, indeed.
