✨✧ VillainsLet's Dance With The Villains – The Batman Theme ... CD
Somerset/Rock Beat, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of those great little 60s knockoff rock records – served up by a group of no-name musicians, but with a very groovy feel! We're guessing The Villains were a combo who were only cooked up for this project, but they've got a great sound throughout – a mod mix of garagey elements with heavy solos on guitar and tenor – all set to rhythms that definitely live up to the cover's promise of "A Go Go Party With The Batman – And Other Dance Hits For Villains & Good Guys". All tracks are instrumental, and have a vibe that's somewhere in the Memphis mode of the time – both rock and soul – on titles that include "Fruggin The Riddle", "Monkey With The Penguin", "Take That You Fiend", "Batman Chase", "In My Merry Batmobile", and "Pow Zop Wham".

James MoodyJames Moody With Strings ... LP
Argo, 1960. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A rare setting for Moody – a player who rarely cut sides with larger backing, but who sounds really wonderful here! The album's got Moody blowing mostly alto, and a bit of flute – over large backings by Torrie Zito that feature equal parts strings and woodwinds – conducted in a way that's got the same modern touches as the best Verve "with strings" work from the 50s, but which also shares some of the boozier, more mature touches that Zito brought to his work for vocalists in the 60s. There's a sad, languid feel to the record that's emotively redeemed by Moody's soulful and contemplative solo work – breaking out nicely on titles that include Zito originals "Somerset", "Another Day", "Dorothee", "A Song Of Love", and "Dorian Mood" – plus versions of "I Remember Clifford", "Love For Sale", and "All My Life". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Cadet stereo pressing with deep groove.)
