"A Piece of Film Music History"
That's something I wrote a few months back while I was finishing up our 4 disc set for BTAS Vol 2. While sifting through Shirley's personal collection of music we came across something marked "Danny's Batman Theme". At first I thought it was going to be a demo for the BTAS theme, then I listened to it. Clocking in at 2 minutes and change was a piano demo for the theme from Danny Elfman's 1989 score...filled with some mistakes and not quite complete. I just about wet my pants. The score that got me to fall in love with film music -- here in my hands -- is the initial demo cut for the producer's to listen to.. .to say Yeah or Nay on the composer and his now iconic theme. It's the score that launched Elfman's career into the stratosphere and help establish that comic book sound for years to come.
I know some of you out there, you Grumpy Gus', will poo-poo all over this discovery and my proclaimation, but I don't care. This IS a part of film music history and I am very happy to share it with those who will appreciate it as much as I did. For those of you who picked up the BTAS Vol 2 set -- it's an easter egg on disc 1 at the end.

Tanggal 19 Juli yang lalu La-La Land Records merilis ulang Batman The Animated Series: Vol. 1, berikut kutipannya:
Back by popular demand, La-La Land has re-issued its 2008 sold-out title for the legions of BTAS fans who missed out on this dynamite release's initial debut. This "second edition" re-issue is virtually identical to the 2008 version, except the bonus tracks "Gotham City Overture" and "Music of the Bat" have been removed to preserve the integrity of the initial release.

The thrilling orchestral music from the acclaimed Warner Bros. / D.C. Comics animated series BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES is unleashed again in this spellbinding 2CD Limited Edition pressing. Composer Shirley Walker (WILLARD, MEMOIRS OF AN INVISIBLE MAN, FINAL DESTINATION 1-3, THE FLASH), along with Lolita Ritmanis and Michael McCuistion (BATMAN BEYOND, TEEN TITANS), and Danny Elfman's iconic "Batman Theme", revolutionized animated TV music with robust, full-blooded music that propelled BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES to lofty critical and artistic heights, enriching the The Dark Knight's legacy. CD booklet features in-depth liners, including comments from writer/producer Paul Dini and composers Lolita Ritmanis, Michael McCuistion and Danny Elfman. Limited Edition of 5000 Units.
