Maxwell Davis: Batman And Other Themes By Maxwell Davis - The BGP Sound Library Presents (CD)

(2006/ACE) 13 tracks (33:09) recorded by the legendary Los Angeles producer Maxwell Davis in 1966.

1966 saw an upsurge of interest in Batman as the ABC TV network started broadcasting, in primetime, a brand new series of the adventures of Batman and Robin. Within months it was an international success story, and its Neil Hefti theme tune and pop art-influenced look became virtually unavoidable. The Who covered the theme song on their “Ready Steady Who” EP while in Los Angeles Maxwell Davis recorded it for the Crown label. Alongside a cover of the Batman Theme, the LP contained a bunch of pounding go-go instrumentals – all punchy brass and exciting organs – given titles that sounded as if they could have underscored specific scenes in the TV series. The LP was also released in the UK on Ember Records in the middle of 1966. The album cover features Maxwell Davis’s name so small that it is very easy to miss it. This was quite clearly a TV cash-in LP.

For the CD release, we found in the Modern vaults three bonus tracks to add to the project, all very much in the spirit of the Bat-songs. Green Hornet Theme and Tijuana Harlem are from an LP – arranged and led by Maxwell – by the Mexicali Brass, who were put together by Crown to cash-in on the success of Herb Alpert & his Tijuana Brass. These two tracks also appeared as a 45 on Modern’s Kent label credited to Maxwell Davis & the Harlem Brass, and they fit in with the TV sounds here. The Green Hornet was a crime fighter who had first appeared on radio shows in the 1930s. In 1966, a TV version of the Green Hornet became one of the super-hero shows that followed in the wake of the success of Batman, today most notable for the fact the Bruce Lee played the Hornet’s side kick Kato. Our final track is a cover of the famous theme tune to The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, written by Ennio Morricone.

So here we have it, the BGP Sound Library’s first production. Punchy, action-filled grooves.
