THE SENSATIONAL GUITARS OF DAN AND DALE
“Batman And Robin”
Be it the 1939 Kane/Finger originals , the 70’s Englehart/Wein darker-shades, the 80’s Miller epics or the campy 60’s TV show with Adam West ,you just gotta loooove The Batman! I mean, what other millionare playboy-by-day would risk his non-superpowered ass for you by night in the grim and gritty streets of Gotham City? That’s right. None. This is a freejazz take on the original Neil Hefti music for the popular 1966 TV series. So hold on to your Bat-Shark-Repellents and take a joyride on the Batmobile with this jazz/funk trip down crime alley .And ,lo, check out who’s on the steering wheel: Sun Ra and his Arkestra! What’s that you say? Who’s “Dan And Dale?”? Well ,kids ,this ain’t no other than Sun Ra’s secret identity especially tagged for this release.There’s a lot of the occasional Link Wrayish garage-surf guitar rumble on this one for you to feast on, plus some pretty darn gospel like vocals by some (uncredited) gal somewhere. If any o’you were startled by Al Hirt’s “Green Hornet” craze being brought back on the “Kill Bill” compi-soundtrack , this is your one and only chance to do the Batusie just like your momma would back in the 60’s.Holy revivals ,Robin!
