With Batman vs Superman The Dawn of Justice in theaters now I thought it be a great time to look at two of the oddest records in joy collection.
We spot light two records today both from the DC Animated Universe other wise known as the Timm verse. Named after co crestor Bruce Timm. With music by Danny Elfman and the late Shirley Jones. Mondo Records released a Batman Vinyl record in the shape of the Bat symbol in honor of the characters 75th Anniversary. I didn’t get a chance to grab one before they sold out, but was able to get one of the comic con villain records. Clay face come son a tiny 33 with the record it self looking like the villain from the show. Each of the major Batman villains got one Mr.Freeze, Joker, Harley Quinn, Penguin and Riddler. Well at least 6 if his villains did. They contain the music from just the show it self opening and ending credits nothing else. The extended version of this theme can be found online it roughly 2 mins long. I was a bit disappointed in how few tracks were on this album.
A year later Mondo released the Superman Animated score on a record cut like the shield on his chest. Hey released a Superman snd Bizarro variet. I picked up the Bizarro version just because of how cool it looks with the back ward S. The thing with this one is you play the record from the inside out. Any record I have come across you play the record as normal from the out side in. This trick will only work on records with out auto play, it must be done manually.
The Superman vinyl contains the opening and end credits to Superman the Animated Series as well as the opening and end credits to the Adventures of Batman and Superman. This was the new title of both shows from 1997-1999.
The Mondo release of Superman can still be found on their site the Batman record you will have to hunt down on ebay to obtain.
