Music played an important role in all of Jim Henson’s work, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the world of Fraggle Rock. Harmony, among species and within nature, is a central theme of the series, and original music enlivens each episode and helps the characters make connections and find resolutions to their conflicts. The Fraggles, Doozers and Gorgs sing and dance their cares away to all manner of songs, written in every musical style imaginable by composers Dennis Lee and Philip Balsam. Don Gillis’s musical direction and scoring emphasize the joy and vitality of each performance, moving along the action and bringing each story to a satisfying conclusion. The poetry of the lyrics and the hand-clapping rhythms make the music of Fraggle Rock a toe-tapping delight for all who listen.
Disc 1 Fraggle Rock
Disc 2 Fraggle Rock: Perfect Harmony
Disc 3 Fraggle Rock – Music and Magic
