Our staff here at scrambled eggs occasionally receives email inquiries regarding the Frasier Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs Soundtrack, and since it is related to our website subject matter, I thought I would write a review of the soundtrack. For those of you who are not familiar with the television show Frasier, it was an American sitcom that used to air on the channel NBC. The show ran for eleven total seasons, which was from 1993 to 2004. In the show Kelsey Grammer played the main character named Frasier, or the psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane. The show was primarily based on the daily lives of Grammer's character, as well as his father played by John Mahoney, his brother played by David Hyde Pierce, and his house keeper played by Jane Leeves. The show even featured a Jack Russell Terrier named Eddie. The show is readily available on DVD for all the seasons, so be sure to check it out if your haven't seen the whole thing.
Back to the subject of the soundtrack, I have owned it for quite some time, and still listen to it frequently. The soundtrack includes all of the most integral songs that were featured in the show, including the theme song, as well as many other amazing classical and jazz pieces. The soundtrack also does feature extremely hilarious dialogue tracks, and would probably be incomplete without them. Outside of that, it also has some some clips of comments and audio notes by Kelsey Grammer, and some of the writing cast. Grammer and the writers Bruce Miller and Darryl Phinnessee, go on to explain the hidden meaning behind the title of the soundtrack and main theme song, and also reveal some of the meanings built into the lyrics. Altogether the soundtrack consists of eighteen separate tracks. With regard to the original release date, it came out for purchase way back in 1993, produced by the record label called Lifetime Television.
What I liked most about the soundtrack, is that it features and extended version of the main theme song Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs. That alone for me was worth the whole purchase by itself. There was a period of time where I listened to the song as least once a day, as it never seemed to get old. That is not to say that the other songs featured on the soundtrack aren't worth listening to, on the contrary. The entire album is awesome, featuring some absolute classics in jazz and classical. What's cool about most of these songs, is that they bring back memories from all of the greatest moments in the show's long duration, and you will definitely find yourself chuckling as you recall them. With some of the music separated from the show, you realize just how perfect all the mechanics of the show fit together, and how brilliant the director and producer were in selecting the show's theme music. The purchase was definitely worth it.
If you are interesting in purchasing this soundtrack, then head on over to Amazon, or any other online store that features renown television soundtracks. It can also be purchased at just about any music shop, as it's so popular that copies of it are readily available everywhere. What I also find cool about buying it online, is that if there are any tracks that you don't like, or if you already have them on other albums, then you can purchase individual tracks without being forced to buy the whole thing. I believe most individual tracks purchased will only cost you from fifty cents to a dollar, and are worth the small amount of money. Another great thing about buying the soundtrack or individual tracks online, is that you download them straight to your computer right after the transaction is complete, and the sound quality should be in the best possible format. We hope that you enjoyed this quick Soundtrack review.
