Twilight Zone/Twilight Tone

(Marius Constant – Twilight Zone/Jay Graydon & Alan Paul – Twilight Tone)

This song was written in 1979 as a tribute to the television series of the same name created by Rod Serling and aired on CBS in the 1960s.   The introduction music for the first part of the song was wrongly credited to Bernard Herrman on the single and on the album, as he only did the music for the first series of the Twilight Zone.  Marius Constant wrote the music that became popularly known and associated with the series, and used on this record.
