The Transformed Man is actor William Shatner's debut album. It was originally released in 1968 by Decca Records (Cat. 75043), while Shatner was still starring in the original Star Trek series, and began his musical career. The album's cover nicknamed Shatner "Captain Kirk of Star Trek" most likely to boost sales and appeal to fans of the show. The concept of the album was to juxtapose famous pieces of poetry with their modern counterparts, pop lyrics.

William Shatner is known first and foremost as Captain Kirk, the central character from the classic Star Trek TV series from the '60s, and a string of motion pictures starting in the '80s, as well as an author of Star Trek-based books.

The Transformed Man. William Shatner. Exclusive Prime pricing. and then suddenly hilarious again !! You will be SHATNERED by this record! I LOVE William Shatner's 2004 album "HAS BEEN" which is a wonderful, contrite listen. It is without doubt overshadowed and informed by this unique recording. There would not be "HAS BEEN" if there was no "TRANSFORMED MAN," but I must confess, now a late-era Shatner fan, that this record is beyond embarrassing and enters the realm of UNREAL.
