Let's say that we live in a somewhat ideal world where much of the Night Gallery scores exist in good quality sound, and a record label wants to release a 2-disc album consisting of the most interesting segment scores that also do well in capturing the variety of the series' musical expression. With that in mind, my recommendations are the following:

Pilot (Billy Goldenberg)
House With Ghost (Gil Mellé)
The Dead Man (Robert Prince)
A Question of Fear (Paul Glass)
The Phantom Farmhouse (Oliver Nelson)
Green Fingers (Oliver Nelson)
Midnight Never Ends (Oliver Nelson)
The Dark Boy (Ed Sauter)
The Ghost of Sorworth Place (from the score to “Dark Intruder”) (Lalo Schifrin)

I'd have to revisit those episodes, but are they all original compositions? I know I liked alot of the music when it was re-used.
So along with this and the Essential Columbo, how about an Essential Name Of The Game? Or is that a bridge too far?

I'd certainly second a set (or five) of THE NAME OF THE GAME for some choice examples of, primarily, Dave Grusin and Billy Goldenberg, but also Dominic Frontiere, Oliver Nelson, Benny Carter, Pat Williams, Ralph Burns, Robert Prince, Leonard Rosenman (really???), Michel Colombier, and Ralph Ferraro.

I salivate at the thought.

There are lots of less popular TV scores that I would like, but these days my wishes are perhaps best kept focused on series with decent marketability.

Night Gallery for horror, Columbo for suspense, The Six Million Dollar Man for action, and The A-Team for pure adrenaline. Magnum P.I. and Quantum Leap are the wildcards.

Night Gallery is what us little punks waited for on Wednesday nights, next day we'd talk about the previous nights episode at school.

:lol:

Just shows how out of touch I am with all you guys. If I could make absolutely any TV soundtrack appear right now? Yep. It'd be Owen Marshall, Counselor At Law. Elmer Bernstein for the un-initiated. Each episode only boasted a few minutes of original scoring so it's not something most folks would jump at. But I would... even as I watched my label go belly up from the choice.

I don't think you can ever go wrong with Elmer Bernstein. Especially '70s Elmer Bernstein.


As for Night Gallery, I found a neat site dedicated to the series that has a page on its music. Eight of my nine picks are among those featured on that site.

70's television and film music is a great era. I would listen to that over most anything being created today. It's interesting that contemporary composers who emulate the earlier stuff are considered so cool while the originators go under appreciated.
