Music from Close Encounters of the Third Kind

I found this in a local thrift store for only a buck and couldn’t pass it up. Although I do listen to vinyl records and often convert them to mp3s so I can listen to them in the car, I have to admit I bought this one at least as much for the artwork as I did for the record itself. I love the detail of the spaceship and of the lights below of the landing strip.

If there’s one thing that attracted aliens in the 1970s, it was air brushing.

Despite what they showed in the movie, there is no landing strip at the top of Devil’s Tower. Trust me. I checked.

    I still have that album. Bought it at Walmart when it originally came out! I just about wore that album out along with my story of Star Wars picture disc album.
