THE TWILIGHT ZONE
Composed by CRAIG SAFAN, BASIL POLEDOURIS, WILLIAMS GOLDSTEIN, CHRISTOPHER YOUNG
ELLIOT KAPLAN, ARTHUR KEMPEL, DENNIS McCARTHY, JAC REDFORD, FRED STEINER, and KEN WANNBERG
INTRADA Special Collection Vol. 348


Submitted for your approval, Intrada presents 22 scores from these first two seasons of the mid '80s revival of The Twilight Zone. Featuring an array of talented composers, the scores are bound together by the composers' willingness to chart that middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition—a “dimension of sound” that could only have emerged from the Twilight Zone. In conjunction with keyboardist and longtime Dead-associate Merl Saunders, the Grateful Dead collaborated on the main title, which conjures a uniquely creepy vibe, while incorporating Constant’s iconic motif. Additionally, the following episodes are included, moving from purely orchestral to entirely electronic, sporting a myriad of styles reflecting the range of colorful story lines.

Merl Saunders and The Grateful Dead - The Twilight Zone ’85 Main Title
Christopher Young - A Small Talent for War, A Matter of Minutes
Basil Poledouris - A Message From Charity, Monsters!, Profile in Silver, Song of the Younger World
Kenneth Wannberg - Still Life
Dennis McCarthy - Voices in the Earth
Merl Saunders and The Grateful Dead - The Twilight Zone ’85 End Title
J.A.C. Redford - What Are Friends For?
Craig Safan - Dead Woman’s Shoes, Wong’s Lost and Found Emporium, The Uncle Devil Show, Opening Day, To See the Invisible Man, Tooth and Consequences, Teacher’s Aide
Fred Steiner - A Day in Beaumont
Elliot Kaplan - The Last Defender of Camelot
Arthur Kempel - The Elevator
William Goldstein - Her Pilgrim Soul, The Card, Time and Teresa Golowitz

From its earliest years, The Twilight Zone has been synonymous with visions of wonderment, weirdness and terror. Originally created by TV-legend Rod Serling as a high-concept blend of fantastical storytelling grounded in human drama spanning the late '50s to mid '60s, its 156 episodes set a high-water mark for anthology television. The mid-eighties saw a surge in the return of anthologies, amongst which was a revitalized The Twilight Zone which ran for three seasons.

The single greatest release in the history of a soundtrack label (for me, anyway).

Roger at Intrada has said this could be followed by another volume featuring other classic scores from the show from the likes of Robert Folk, Robert Drasnin, Morton Stevens and the rest of Dennis McCarthy's scores... if this sells.

So BUY BUY BUY!!!! Pleeeeeeeease.

Well done Intrada.

Yes, the mention of a possible Volume Two with the other Composers is VERY encouraging!!!:-)

While you're probably correct, he didnt actually specify high sales as being the deciding factor:

"If we do a vol. 2, then we would probably include the Stevens, McCarthy, Drasnin and Folk stuff. But that's a big if."

I bought this on the Intrada website as fast as I could after I pushed my popped-out eyes back into their sockets, and I will buy Volume 2 if the powers-that-be so will a release.

It is both.

And there's plenty of electric guitar popping up. All very atmospheric, nothing that a filmscorefan wouldn't like.

Eliot Kaplan actually scored an episode of "The Twilight Zone" revival? That's rare!

A litle update from the Intrada forum. A user asked what it would take to get a second volume from "if" to "when" and Roger replied:

It's sales and licensing issues. Be really thankful this release came out!

The other score as I recall he did was for a very interesting vampire tale set in Soviet Russia called "Red Snow"



Some very good stuff in this one.

I really wanna pick this up, but I'll have to put it on the back burner for a while.
This show gave me nightmares as a kid.

I must confess I've never heard of Eliot Kaplan before this release. (Any relation to that great underrated composer, Sol Kaplan?)

I think it's really cool when more obscure composers who still did worthy work get some exposure. Maybe on a possible Volume 2 we'll have even more of that, along with the familiar names Stevens, Folk, Drasnin, McCarthy, Debney, and such.
