Crime Fighters -- Batman and Robin

Batman and Robin - The Sensational Guitars of Dan and Dale

This is a cash-in album originally released in 1966 to exploit the Batman fad. It has gained some notoriety over the years, because Sun Ra and members of The Blues Project played on it. Batman and Robin over the Roofs is almost seven amazing minutes long. The disc is all over the place with Jazz, Blues, Rock, Surf (Punk) Guitar! There is not a real bum track here except maybe the overly silly "Flight of the Batman" with the penny whistle (?) sound effects. The guitar in The Penguin Chase is pure Surf Guitar! Dig the harmonica in there too. If he's been alive I'd swear that Joe Meek would have been behind this! Most of it is jams not a lot of true “songs”, which I like for background music. Still fun. BIFF! POW! SOCK!

Thank you so much for posting this!

But could you please repost it?

I had this album a few years back and lost it. Was thrilled to see that you had it available... yet now I'm bummed again because I can't get the link to work.
