The Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy

Here are the two sides of the "Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy" sleeve:

Side one of the LP is written from the perspective of Spock, while side 2 is straight up 60's folk-pop with a couple standards popular at that time.

I have to admit that I've seen maybe a total of two episodes of Star Trek and probably just as many of the films, so I'm no trekkie. But I am occasionally drawn to some good, old fashion American camp and the fact is that a couple songs I've heard off of the album are pretty catchy even when unintentionally hilarious.

The track, "Highly Illogical" opens the album and can be heard on Leonard Nimoy's myspace page for anyone curious. It's basically a song written from the perspective of Spock, who is incredulous but calm as he outlines a number of observed contradictions in human behavior.
