The Touch of Leonard Nimoy is the fourth studio album released from Leonard Nimoy. The album was released in 1969, on Dot Records.[1]


Continuing with the folk sound and direction he established with his previous album, the songs range from optimism, political awareness, the human condition, living together, and love.

The song "Maiden Wine" was featured in the Star Trek episode, "Plato's Stepchildren". It is the song sung by Spock while he was being manipulated by the Platonians in 2268 (hence the "serenade from the laughing spaceman", as originally named).[2][3]
