Our Star Trek Will Go for ... about 77 Minutes


Well, here is the latest in obsessively anthologizing music.
Definitely no soundtracks here -- except for James Horner's "The Search for Spock" which was originally featured as Side Three of the ST III soundtrack LP (with a blank Side 4).
TREKonometry has 24 tracks. Some versions of Trek themes are OK and even -- um, fascinating, like the Phil Woods Quintet's long jazz riff on the TV theme.
There's plenty of disco represented here, from The Galactic Force Band to Gene Page. There're odd arrangements, like the fuzz guitar by Chris Holland or the cheesy roller-skate-rink organics of the Schnauzer Radio Orchestra.
And just for fun, the last couple of tracks are kinda silly.
Let me know what you think!
Here's the link:
