A more than welcome third entry in the soundtrack series drawn from the original Star Trek. This time around the cues are compiled from one of Alexander Courage's rare scores for the show ("The Naked Time") and Gerald Fried's score for "Shore Leave." Amazingly, the mastering this time is an improvement over the previous release in the series — and that disc sounded terrific. Musically, the cues here are generally more traditional, with few of the instrumental effects used in scores for episodes such as "Amok Time." Altogether, an enjoyable disc.
A Piece of Nostalgia...
Volume 3 of a series of three. These are all excellent recordings of the music from the original Star Trek TV series and on listening to them, those old enough to have watched them on television will be instantly transported (pun intended) back to their childhood and experience all the familar comforting feelings hopefully associated with those more innocent times. I'm so glad I discovered these titles.
