From the days before Batman seemingly smoked 50 a day and got that gruff voice, here we have the vintage, naive, charming Batman of the 1960s television series and its jazzy, funky, fun soundtrack which was composed by Nelson Riddle. There is also some of that classic dialogue thrown in between the tracks. And so, jinkies Batman, what more could anyone want from such a record?!

- Batman - Original Television Soundtrack by Nelson Riddle
7/10 Jack 18th February 2017
The music on the disc is direct from the TV soundtrack, so collectors will like this... however, there is a lot of filler here, and really, when you are talking about a very short disc (under 30 minutes total), filler has no place. The best cut on the album is titled "To The Batmobile!" It gives you a great sequence starting with the famed "Atomic batteries to power, turbines to speed" opening, and a brilliant blending of the Bat and Riddler's theme with the sound of the Batmobile's engines revving.
