  The Gerald Fried Collection Vol. 1: Cruise Into Terror / Survive! - Gerald Fried - soundtrack (2CD)

Gerald Fried

  Dragon's Domain Records DDR-717 | Format CD | Year 1978 / 1976

Dragon's Domain Records, to be distributed through, presents THE GERALD FRIED COLLECTION, VOLUME 1, featuring music composed by Gerald Fried (THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E., STAR TREK, ROOTS) for two films from his extensive filmography.

Airing on television in 1978, CRUISE INTO TERROR tells the story of the son of Satan hitching a ride inside an Egyptian sarcophagus and causing havoc when shipped as cargo on a pleasure cruise ship. The story as written has a kind of a Love Boat Meets Hellraiser kind of sensibility, although much less frightening. To score the film, Fried utilized an approach he had favored in the horror films he scored during the '50s: paraphrasing from traditional material, which included the Dies Irae , a medieval plainsong chant that is one of the most quoted in musical literature, appearing in numerous classical compositions and film scores alike. Fried recorded the score with a 40-piece orchestra, as he recalls, which gave a sense of size and assertion to the music as the film plays out.

Released in 1976, SURVIVE! is a Mexican film released under the Spanish title SUPERVIVIENTES DE LOS ANDES (Survivors Of The Andes) and tells the true story of the crash of Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571, which was chartered to carry the country's rugby team to a match in Santiago, Chile when it crashed in the Andes Mountains. Rescuers could not find the crash site as the plane was far off course when it plowed into snow and rock on a mountainside; without food, survivors had to choose between starvation and eating the flesh of the dead; of the 45 persons on board the plane, 33 initially survived the crash, but only 16 would survive to be rescued after 72 days on the mountain top, trapped by injuries, lack of food, and severe weather, with only the aircraft's torn fuselage for shelter. The tragedy was later filmed by Frank Marshall as ALIVE (1993).

The original Mexican version of the film was released in January 1976, and featured a relatively sparse score by Mexican composer Raul Lavista. An edited English language version was adapted by Paramount and released in the United States in August 1976, presented by Allan Carr and Robert Stigwood; for this version Gerald Fried was brought in to compose a new score for the American edit of the movie. Fried composed a sizeable score that perfectly fit the storyline and set the tone for its dramatic and controversial situations.

Born February, 1928 in the Bronx, Gerald Fried's interest in music found its first fruition at the High School of Music & Art in New York City. He attended The Juilliard School of Music as an oboe major, graduating in 1945. Among his earliest friends was a bright kid named Stanley Kubrick. The two of them used to hang around Greenwich Village and talk about their budding interests, Fried's in classical music and Kubrick's in filmmaking. Their interests merged when Kubrick began filming DAY OF THE FIGHT, an 18-minute short about boxing. Knowing Fried was a music major, Kubrick asked him if he could write the score for his boxing picture. Fried agreed, then spent months going to the movies to learn how film scores worked, there being no schools or courses on film music in those days. Fried wrote an effective score, and Kubrick sold the film to RKO Pathé. Fried rejoined Kubrick to score four more of his films, including THE KILLING and PATHS TO GLORY, where the young filmmaker first gained his reputation.

After the success of THE KILLING in 1956, Kubrick moved to Los Angeles, shortly followed by Fried, who was immediately hired to compose and arrange music for several films, including THE VAMPIRE, THE RETURN OF DRACULA, MACHINE GUN KELLY and I, MOBSTER, I BURY THE LIVING, and TIMBUKTU (1959). By the 1960s, Fried moved into television, scoring episodes of such seminal shows of the decade as GILLIGAN'S ISLAND, THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E., MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE and STAR TREK. By the 1970s Fried was composing music for numerous made-for-TV movies. His best-known score of the decade was for the 1977 miniseries ROOTS, which he took over scoring when Quincy Jones fell behind and was unable to meet the broadcast deadline for the eight-hour miniseries. Both Jones and Fried won Emmy Awards for their musical efforts on the series. During the '80s, Fried continued to compose music for television series, movies, and documentaries, and an occasional feature film. Now in his 90s, Fried continues to score the occasional commission, short or feature film, and keeps those creative juices active and finding expression.

Dragon's Domain Records presents THE GERALD FRIED COLLECTION, VOLUME 1, featuring music composed by Gerald Fried for CRUISE INTO TERROR and SURVIVE! for the first time on compact disc. The music has been mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland and the liner notes have been written by noted author Randall Larson.
