- Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Batman by Various
Here’s one for collectors of the Caped Crusader! 1966 have put together this limited red LP (just 300 copies!) containing 16 different renditions of the famous ‘Batman’ theme, all but two of which were actually recorded in 1966. The majority of these are blazing surf rock’n’roll cuts (Link Wray’s probably being the best of these), although the superb Boston Pops Orchestra version is a highlight too with stomping percussion and booming brass giving it an almost ‘Hall of the Mountain King’ kind of vibe, superb fun. The spy movie chug of Italy’s Ettore Cenci Guitar Trio is another high point. It does get a little bit samey once you get through 16 versions of the same eight bar blues and you’ll probably find a couple you end up returning to more than the rest but these are fun versions and with it being so limited I’d imagine dedicated Batfans will snap this one up pretty quickly.

HOLY PRICELESS COLLECTION OF ETRUSCAN SNOODS
Who can forget the classic batman tv show? Frank Gorshin as Riddler, Cesar Romero as Joker complete with white make up covering his'tache, Julie Newmar and Lee Meriweather as the beautiful Catwoman, oh and Eartha Kitt also as Catwoman. A veritable feast of sixties A listers and then there's the classic theme tune. We all know the theme but on this album we have 16 different versions of the same tune. There's jazz, soul, pop, surf, bands that sound like The Cramps years before The Cramps and lots of organ wig-outs. You can almost see Adam West doing the 'batusi' to it all in a groovy discotheque.
You might think that 16 versions of the same song might be a bit too much but trust me it's better then 16 versions of Prince's 'Batdance'.
