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 Wed. 6/14/17 10:28pm Funky16Corners:

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

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

I think Ben Affleck killed Bruce Wayne

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.

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    Wed. 6/14/17 10:45pm Little Danny:

Shirley Ellis being married to Lincoln Chase is blowing my mind.
Avatar    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 Wed. 6/14/17 10:47pm Funky16Corners:

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.
Avatar    Wed. 6/14/17 11:03pm Little Danny:

The Julian Tharpe version was weird and wonderful
Avatar    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 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 Wed. 6/14/17 11:11pm Funky16Corners:

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