Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy is Leonard Nimoy's second album released shortly after Music From Outer Space. It was released in early 1968 by Dot Records.

Background[edit]

The album is a continuation of the "Spock and Space" sound he embarked on Nimoy's debut album. Side one showcases the side fans know as Mr. Spock but in a softer side, along with his struggle between being human and Vulcan. Side two represents Nimoy's interests in a variety of songs; novelty, pop, country and love songs.

Side one of this album is presented on the Varèse Sarabande Records 1995 reissue of Leonard Nimoy Presents Mr. Spock's Music From Outer Space.
