Music played in this episode

The enigmatic WILBURN BURCHETTE returns, after the great success his music had on Episode 11. Wilburn burned most of his musical artifacts, but his impartiality to his own music didn’t deter its success. Creating music that resonated a cross between horror scores and Californian New Age, Burchette self-distributed on the Burchette Brothers label in collaboration with his brother, Kenneth, from 1971 to 1977.
