The Way I Feel is the third studio album by Leonard Nimoy. It was released in late 1968 by Dot Records, the same year Two Sides was released.

Background[edit]

Unlike the first two albums, Nimoy stepped away from his Mr. Spock persona on this album. There are no science fiction, Spock themed songs, or outer space sound effects featured on the album. The album consists of folk songs. However, it is believed that the spoken word tracks, "Consilium" and "Where It's At" loosely tie into the Spock persona.
