Yes, that is Spock in the headphones. The year was 1979. These are some of my LPs, themed compilations, and the like.

Twilight Zone - The Movie

This 1983 film was infamous for its uneven segments, and Joe Landis's segment that resulted in the unnecessary death of actor Vic Morrow.  But it should be celebrated as one of Jerry Goldsmith's finest fantasy scores.

This particular compilation is the result of a lot work by other folks, and a little work by me.  The song "The Midnight Special," of course, opens the film, and here it is edited for length to reflect the length of the version heard in the movie.  We also have the TZ theme as heard in the film, narrated by old TZ stand-by Burgess Meredith, who also provided voiceover narration for the entire film.

The other "pop" songs are all from the first segment, "Time Out," which includes music heard on the bar jukebox, and Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze," heard in the Vietnam sequences.

Another fan put together the cartoon music added into the "It's a Good Life" segment.  After the ending segment, which includes the FOURTH rendition of Marius Constant's theme heard in this 2-CD set, we have shortened versions of the music as heard on the original 1983 soundtrack album, which incidentally used the end credits music as an "Overture."

So, here is the 2-CD complete Twilight Zone: The Movie music.
