Notes:
Bringing to television BATMAN, a top selling comic book for almost thirty years, presented something of a challenge to me and Lorenzo Semple, Jr., the principal writer. We were determined to preserve all the wonderful and revered flavour of the comic books and of Bob Kane's immortal characters, yet we also wanted to add an element of "hip" humor to amuse the adult viewers - and we regard almost everyone over fifteen as an adult in this context.
Our favorite review is from a southern metropolitan paper whose TV critic watched the opening show with his eleven-year-old son, who, in the midst of the dynamic duo's gyrations, exclaimed, "Daddy stop laughing, this is serious!" Holy Reaction! (William Dozier)
------
Album first released in 1966. Re-released in 1989 around the buzz created by the new Tim Burton movie adaptation of 'Batman'. Re-released again and remastered in 2014 following the official release of the DVD's of the TV series.

referencing Batman: Original TV Soundtrack, LP, Album, SSL 10179

This album is fantastic. It contains the groovy soundtrack to the 1960s Tv series along with some excellent dialogue from the show... sometimes even together. All in all, this is a great listen. Highly recommended.
