This’ll kill you

Points to this one just for the cover:

Alfred Hitchcock Presents Music to Be Murdered By

Two wholly different albums are combined into this set. Hitchcock is heard only on the first, a collection of “mood music in a jugular vein” released by Imperial in 1958. The second is the original soundtrack to the 1960 scarefest Circus of Horrors, which Hitch had nothing to do with, but it seems murderous enough in its own right.

    I wonder if this was done as a response to the Jackie Gleason albums, which were basically sold as “music to seduce to.”

    (There was another phrase I considered for that, but it uses a word I don’t use in polite company, so)
