the superhero files (Leaping Fox)


the superhero files is a library of 22 discs' worth of superhero music, theme songs, and songs about superheroes.  This collection of over 540 tracks has been collated by me, over a period of several years, from numerous sources, and includes music from the 1930's to the 2000's, with a focus on "vintage."  Care has been taken to give each track the proper attention, and when appropriate, noise/click reduction, EQing, and other tools have been applied.  The files are mp3's (with an average bitrate of 224 kbs), designed for this entire library to fit on a single DVD, or uploaded to the device of your choice.  Custom artwork has been produced for each volume, and all files are tagged with information and a photo of the appropriate disc cover.  If you have ever downloaded a compilation from this blog, then you are aware of the level of quality involved. Never before has a project like this been done in exactly this way!

It's important to point out what is excluded from this set:  
First, spoken-word adventures such as radio shows, storybook LP's, or book-and-record sets have been left out of this compilation, because (aside from a brief excerpt from Superman's radio show, and a handful of radio or TV ads), they interrupt the flow of the music, which is the primary content of this set.  
Secondly, "theme records," which were especially popular in the 1960's (such as CHILDREN'S TREASURY OF SUPERMAN SONGS, or the concept album JAN AND DEAN MEET BATMAN, for example).  As these albums are entire LP's of related content, and are meant to be heard as a whole, it made no sense to merely clip out a song as an example, or even include the entire album, which would thereby bloat this library unnecessarily.  [An exception to this would be any versions of the 1966 "Batman Theme," as you will see below.] Lists of available "theme records" that exist are usually included in the artwork for their respective volumes.
Both spoken-word and theme records exist as separate, stand-alone categories from these compilation discs (and would perhaps be a good follow-up project, down the road, who knows).

Artwork is included with each respective volume. Here is the extremely comprehensive track list for all 22 CD's:
