I looked at your picture in the watch case
and l heard a pain in my heart that was the sweetest hurt in all the world."

Driving down a winding rural road, Wade Norton narrowly misses squashing a frail
old man lying by the roadside.
He sets off on foot to find help, discovering a pocket watch with a picture of a
lovely young woman inside.
An insistent rhythmic pulse draws him to a nearly mansion where people are kept prisoner
(and ageless) by an alien intelligence.

For all of you Outer Limits fans, this is another of my re-created soundtracks.
Source material is again from CDs, direct DVDrips and a number are re-mixes to recreate them
as heard in the episode.

Dominic Frontiere reused quite a number of tracks and sometimes just selected bars from his
older episodes, both the "Outer Limits" and "Stoney Burke".

From the "Outer Limits" he used music from:
ZZZZZ, Nightmare, Controlled Experiment, The Man Who Was Never Born, Tourist Attraction,
Please Stand By, The Galaxy Being, The Human Factor and The Architects Of Fear.

Still with me, there's more.
From "Stoney Burke" he used music from:
Joby, To Catch A Kaiser, Cousin Eunice, Wild Cues, Matter Of Pride and The Wanderer.
There may be more (if anybody spots anymore tracks, let me know).

Some of the tracks were cleanly available, others had to be "Frankensteined" together.
Of course this wouldn't be complete without that hypnotic, metronome-like pulse that throbs in the
background of much of the episode.
Case in point, track# "16 Procreation, Work, Faith" had over 36 different overlays.

On the bright side, I was able to recreate one of Dominic Frontiere's most beautiful tracks.
Outer Limits fans will recognize the romantic track# "21 I Heard A Pain In My Heart" as the "Wade and Tess Theme".
For all of you fans of Stoney Burke, it was originally known as "Laura's Theme"!

So is it a good soundtrack?
Personally I think it's more eerily appropriate for Halloween.
It's not perfect (some minor Fx remains).
But have a listen; let me know what you think!

To assist in identifying the musical cues in "the Guests", I referred to the book
"We Will Control All That You Hear: The Outer Limits and the Aural Imagination"
by Author: Reba Wissner .

As I compared the completed soundtrack to the cues listed below, what becomes apparent is this:
- The cues don't always line up in the proper order, nor show the "repeats".
- Several of the cues were reused in other "Stoney Burke" / "Outer Limits" episodes.
- The track sources I used (listed in parens) may not be the first occurrance ;
i.e they may have appeared in previous episodes.
- Others I just plain disagree with;
sonically they don't match the episode, so I had to find a match elsewhere.

Below are all of the excerpted cues (verbatim from the book) used in the episode as
