I bought this CD original soundtrack several years back and I'm writing this only in response to other reviews that fail to consider that Lubin used every piece on this CD at one time or another in the 96 episodes of "One Step Beyond." Could he have included "scarier" music throughout this collection? Definitely! There is a very creepy piece of music written for "The Room Upstairs," aired March 21, 1961; and for the episode, "Bloodflower," which aired May 16, 1961, when its central character played by actor Larry Gates, is in the cemetery. A very very creepy piece of music. And there is a wonderfully creepy piece in the episode, "Justice," aired March 7th, 1961. One of my all-time favorite pieces of tv film music, which when I heard it as a boy of eleven, it just gave me the shivers. But though these scary pieces of music were left off, we have to remember the original LP was issued in 1960, well before these episodes aired. There are "straight" compositions, such as "Byegone Memories," from the episode, "The Return of Mitchell Campion," aired April 7, 1959, which are very special and made sense when listened to "in the dramatic context of the episode" itself. But one can listen to some of the music left off this LP and the CD reissue, thanks to a new series of DVDs due out this month (July, 2003), and which can be viewed at DVD Planet by entering "One Step Beyond" in their search engine. Paramount bought the rights to the old series several years back, reports World Vision. So maybe one day we will have an addition CD collection of music left off the recording, "Music From One Step Beyond"? Perhaps they will call that CD, "More Music From One Step Beyond"?Read more ›

I recently purchased this CD along with the new 40th anniversary Twilight Zone 4 CD box. While the opening "Fear" and "Weird" are truly creepy pieces, I kind of felt like the rest was just 50s TV stuff and not all that "Beyond." It's really not much compared to the new excellent TZ CD. Obviously this is a straight reissue of an old early 60s album. It would be cooler if they included more of a description of the conditions and inspiration that composer Harry Lubin worked under, and definately more scary pieces would be appreciated. It's still pretty neat on the whole, though, and if you're a old time SF fan or classic TV fan this probably belongs in your collection.

With Alcoa Presents (One Step Beyond) barely a fading memory, I am very thankful that Harry Lubin's beautiful music lives on with this CD. Ranging from the haunting "Fear", through the delightful "Trip to the Far East," each melody brings back wonderful memories. It is difficult to believe that these compositions were written only to accompany a TV drama - on a weekly basis! Harry Lubin has faded from our scene as well but though we lost a great talent (composer, conductor, and arranger) his beautiful melodies can be played again and again.

I remember the ONE STEP BEYOND tv series from 1959 when I was fifteen.The main melody "WEIRD" has stayed with me throughout my life but it is only since the introduction of the internet that I have been able to purchase this music from Amazon. The only two familiar tracks on the cd are "FEAR and "WEIRD" but these two tracks alone are well worth the purchase of the disc.I have a glass(OR TWO)of wine, sit back, relax, and be taken back into the realms of the 1950's with these haunting melodies.YES, it's a great cd to have,FULL MARKS, I'm truly grateful for this product. I am of course referring to the original HARRY LUBIN music. Cheers, JOHN MATHER, lancashire. Another satisfied customer.

I was in my mid-teens when "One Step Beyond" aired (actually, it was called "Alcoa Presents," and OSB was the subtitle), and in those innocent times, before splatter movies had desensitized viewers to artfully creepy programming, this series was creepy indeed--especially since the stories for which this music was written were claimed to be based on actual events. I can still feel the hairs on the back of my neck stir a little when I listen to "Fear," whose suavely menacing melody always came up under John Newland's sonorous closing commentaries. Production values were uniformly high, and apart from Mr. Lubin's deft melodies and orchestrations (he conducted the Berlin Philharmonic in this collection, no less!), the scripts, photography, and casts were also first-rate, with future stars like a young and rather foxy Cloris Leachman and Ross Martin making early appearances in the series. I imagine that most of today's overstimulated audiences might find this music incomprehensible, but to me it's a pleasantly nostalgic reminder of sitting in front of our 21-inch, black-and-white Magnavox every week, waiting to be creeped out. I nearly always was, and I loved it!
