Star Trek: Shore Leave / The Naked Time

Star Trek soundtrackThe most recent collection of original Trek music from Crescendo (not counting the Trouble With Tribbles suite on the 1996 Best Of Star Trek CD) features slightly less well-known scores from less obvious episodes than popular favorites such as Amok Time and The Cage, and in that respect the choices are more interesting. Gerald Fried’s music from Shore Leave careens around recklessly from Finnegan’s Irish-themed signature tune to gentler, more classical-sounding passages for Kirk’s old flame, and appropriately heraldic fanfares for McCoy winding up on the wrong side of a joust with an imaginary knight. The Naked Time‘s similarly fantasy-4 out of 4themed music has some more mysterious themes dealing with the vague time-travel subplot introduced toward the end of the show. Both are very interesting listening, and the mastering is again outstanding, considering that this music was recorded over thirty years ago.
