Music inspired by the work of Robert Bloch (and some adaptations): Saturday Music Club on Sunday of Bloch centennial week

Bernard Herrmann: Psycho suite

Peter Rugolo Orchestra: Thriller: "The Hungry Glass"

Jerry Goldsmith: Thriller: "The Grim Reaper"

Oliver Nelson: Night Gallery: "Logoda's Heads"

Molle Mystery Theater: "Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper" (hosted by Peter Lorre)

Thriller: "The Cheaters"

Thriller: "The Devil's Ticket"

Torture Garden (despite the stolen, irrelevant title, the first and best of the several Amicus anthology films shot from Bloch's adaptations, more fiddled with by producers later on, of his own short stories)

Thanks for putting all this together. That's a lot of wonderful music.

As I mentioned in discussing this elsewhere, a pity some of Herrmann's ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR scoring isn't available to post thus. I wouldn't mind hearing "A Home Away from Home" or "Water's Edge" again...and these are definitely talented composers, all four (and those who provided the music in the full productions after). Thanks, Patricia!
