William Shatner beams it down in the Summer of Lurve

OMG! Friends

The original album was called The Transformed Man and actually came out in 1968, and featured a few of contemporary hits of the time, many with drug references which he obviously embraced wholeheartedly; songs such as Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and Mr Tambourine man (classic). But even weirder, he recites Shakespeare over a soundtrack – Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet,  King Henry the Fifth -and even weirder still – a song called ‘Spleen’ with words by John Lennon.

Being 1968, makes us think he was dead serious when he  made this, tho I don’t think actually will admit that these days… But I swear to you – this is a MUST listen to, you will never loo at William Shatner in the same way again.

It is perfect to cheer you or a buddy up – excellent for accompanying any hallucinogen or ketamine evening, or just getting blown out for the sake of it.

From the album – Spleen and Lucy in the Sky…

And if you just got to hear a bit more – here is bohemian rhapsody from a slighter later production – pure gold!  Enjoy!
