Batman!
Avatar Wed. 6/14/17 10:27pm still b/p:

One of the pieces on Bruce Wayne's passing said that there wasn't much readership for Batman comics when the TV show got started. WE were reading Batman!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 10:28pm Funky16Corners:

Indeed!
Avatar Wed. 6/14/17 10:28pm still b/p:

Adam West's passing, I mean, of course,...HA, I killed Bruce Wayne!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 10:30pm Funky16Corners:

I think Ben Affleck killed Bruce Wayne
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/14/17 10:32pm Uncle Michael:

This is great -- a fitting follow up to Belock's trib on Monday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 10:36pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 10:37pm Parq:

As I mentioned then, I remember J&D lip-synching to this on some TV show. Man, did they look silly -- I mean, boy were they having fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 10:37pm Funky16Corners:

Underrated
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/14/17 10:38pm Uncle Michael:

You won't come back from Batman's curve.

I bet you could do an entire two hours' worth of quality Batman material, Larry
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 10:42pm Parq:

Eartha Kitt reminds me now about what Mad Mag once said about Zha Zha -- a female female impersonator.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/14/17 10:43pm Uncle Michael:

That's dead-on, Parq.
Avatar Wed. 6/14/17 10:44pm still b/p:

Would've been fun to be in the recording studio when the show's fight scene music was laid down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 10:45pm Little Danny:

Shirley Ellis being married to Lincoln Chase is blowing my mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 10:47pm Little Danny:

Do you know Doc Bagby's "Mr. Hippy" 45 on the Tifton label, Larry? Stone hammond mod groover with Latin tinge
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 10:47pm Funky16Corners:

I do not but I'll be looking for it. I have a bunch of Doc Bagby stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/14/17 10:48pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 10:49pm Little Danny:

It's head and shoulders above any other Bagby side in my opinion...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/14/17 10:50pm Uncle Michael:

One last thing...I was checking out the fabulous animation by Georgia Hubley's parents, John and Faith a while back and one of my favorites had, as the voice actors Dudley Moore and Dizzy Gilespie.

The Julian Tharpe version was weird and wonderful
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 11:05pm Little Danny:

Totally agree re: the greatness of "Sac o Woe," and the overall greatness of "Sac o Woe" cover versions
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 11:07pm Funky16Corners:

Glad you liked it. I'll have to dig out some of my other fave covers in the future
Avatar Wed. 6/14/17 11:10pm still b/p:

I'm completely on this Time Is On My Side's side.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 11:11pm Funky16Corners:

That's the original
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/14/17 11:12pm Funky16Corners:

The original VOCAL
