I don't know if everyone here has seen this or not, but here's a fun video with Shem von Schroeck playing some of the TOS themes on piano:

It is good fun & reminds me of how much I am enjoying the LLL TOS release.


Thanks for posting. Great clip.

The set is just great and I can't believe I've had it almost a year now. A dream come true and so much more listening pleasure to be weaned from this release of a lifetime!

I can’t stop listening to “Friday’s Child”. It’s just so much of what the second season was all about. Great Action licks, awesome commercial break act enders. (Cat’s Paw has great Act out music too).

I still can’t believe we’ve got all of Fried’s Trek scores and practically all of his UNCLE music too! There’s something almost jaunty or jazzy in even his serious moments. But I think the main word that comes to mind is fun!

And how about Fried’s awesome Starship flybys! The crashing cymbals and big interesting arrangements of the theme just really sell how cool the Enterprise can be.

His music is really noticeably missing in the third season, I don’t know how, but they we’re able to take a great cue like “Down the throat” and suck all the fun out it for its third season Library version.

I’m just rambling here, but I almost always go to Friday’s Child when I’m in the mood for Trek music. Or at least it seems to be my first stop in a listening marathon.

Friday's Child is pretty near the top of Star Trek music for me--that score's got everything (except violins). And "fun" is the right word--I also think that's one reason he got left out of most of season three. The second season sense of fun, that Fried helped define, was totally absent year three.

It just occurred to me that, despite the common talk about STAR TREK composers getting typecast (eg., Duning for sensitive stories, Steiner for action...), it wasn't always so. If you listen to Friday's Child with its over-the-top dramatics, you probably don't think "This is the perfect guy to score Miramanee's touching story in The Paradise Syndrome." But Fried did turn out to be the perfect guy for it.
