the batman files - disc 2 (Leaping Fox)

Continuing from where we left off, the remaining two discs cover the insanity surrounding the 1966 Batman television show, in about every way you can think of:  official, unofficial, "satire," tribute, and just plain old money-grubbing cash-in.  The interior artwork gives a helpful list of the "100% Batman" albums that are not included as sources for this collection:
Highlights of this disc include Jumpin' Gene Simmons (not that one), UK heroes Mike & Bernie Winters, and the often-imitated, but never-duplicated Frank Gorshin.  I remember hearing that record as a kid (on the Dr. Demento show, no less), and no matter how many times I have heard it, you just have to admire his Riddler.  He just gave it his all.  Contrast that with Burgess Meredith; fine actor and screen personality that he was (and end-all, be-all Penguin), his single is not only incredibly boring, but has identical backing on both sides! Yawwwnnn.
