I'd certainly pay $20 for a release of this.

I think everyone who reads this thread and wants the score should drop him an email and express the interest.

I've just emailed him my interest. If it turned out that $200 was enough to get this music into a few donors hands that would be fantastic.

Is this a new model for getting obscure soundtracks released?!? ha ha.

Just heard from Mr. Goldstein (see below). The $200 would go towards the cost of the copies or downloads, but it looks like there's no guarantee the music is actually available. However, I've seen several of his scores available, so there's a good chance he has ALIENS too. How should we proceed?

1. So far CBS will not license Twilight Zone. I will check in again with them. Yes I wrote three original scores for the series,

2. If there are sufficient #'s to amount to $200 I will search my archives and see if we can retrieve and recover the tapes and organize an Album. Those who contribute will have access to download the uploaded file / or for cost of shipping receive a CD-R. THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN UNTIL NOVEMBER.

While I apprecie what he's doing, what it is, is a new model to not get legal clearance from the rights holders, and avoid the AFM.

If he handed out promtional CD's, he might fall into some grey area, but this -- I don't imagine it's anything but trouble.


Somebody on this board, it might have been Thaxton, said about a year or two ago, when somebody here inquired about the scores for this show, something along the lines of "Good things come to who wait".


The studio must have some interest, otherwise the Dennis McCarthy CD, sold at his site, wasn't legal then, and the Grateful Dead one from Silva Screen, also not so.
I'm betting some label would get more talk from the studio.

between the 4 of us, that's $50 each...

sounds like he knows what he's doing, and has been doing it this way for a while, like the promo cds released on the Dennis McCarthy-Joe Harnell site: http://yhst-76230688982511.stores.yahoo.net/slsorebydemc.html
If he was bootlegging, he would have offered the Twilight Zone music, but he didnt because he doesnt have the license.

Passage of time doesn't make something right. Doing something repeatedly doesn't make a person in the right.

And last I heard, promotional CD's are just that -- promotional; hey are not licensed for sale.

I'm, sue Lukas or MV can step in here and clear it up, even give some vague idea of the AFM fees that could be associated with the usage. Assuming there was no choir, which would cost more. And whether releasing this stuff, might hinder a future multi-CD set.


If a composer wants to hand out promos to people not in the industry, he can -- not supposed to, but I've yet to see a single composer get in trouble for this. If he wants to ask for a little when a person contacts him, or that person offers some, that's between him and the individule, though still circumnavigating the AFM (though in a more grey area with a promo). And, as MV pointed out: "Something to keep in mind when companies produce projects like this -- we are still held accountable for stuff like AFM and SAG fees."
Which I assume, for SAG, means if they use a picture (or likeness?) of any of the actors, they have to pay for that, too, so if Goldstein puts anybody on the inserts...


Again,. I'm happy he replies to fans, cares, and wants to make the effort.

a kind soul invested in the score, received 10 cdrs from Mr Goldstein, and is selling them to anyone who's interested - hopefully to at least the people who expressed an interest here.

I received my composer signed copy from the USA today! If you're a fan of 70's/early 80's orchestral sci-fi scores you'll love this. The themes are engaging and there's plenty of variation to the score. I love the funky disco track and lounge music as well.

I can't quite believe that I made a request for this score just a couple of months ago and in that time it's been produced, released, bought, shipped, received and now thoroughly enjoyed.

It's really worth picking up.

you can now order a CD directly from William Goldstein ($16 + $5 shipping). I would email him to make sure it's available, when he will send it, etc:
http://www.williamgoldstein.com/mailord.html

or buy downloads (mp3, etc) from iTunes and Amazon. Find direct "Purchasing Links" to both sites on bottom left on this site - soundsamples also provided:

It's a little strange to finally hear this without the QM Productions logo music at the end. That said, it's well worth springing for this... smile
