This is why WFMU is the greatest radio station on Earth.
Duh nuh nuhnuh nuhnuhnuh, duh nuh nuhnuh nuhnuhnuh, SUN-RA! I had long heard about a wild '60s Batman exploitation record that was recorded by the Arkestra under a different name, but never saw or heard a shred of it ... until today, when those swell folks posted it on their blog. There's something perversely beautiful about Sun Ra playing funked-up classical themes for a Batman record published by a toy company. I wonder how many kids got this record in 1966 and felt ripped off that the Hefti Bat-theme didn't sound exactly like it did on the show.
