Batman LP - UPDATE

No producer credits, but Arthur Korb seems like a good bet. The sleeve art is by Neal Adams, with the inside art by Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, which means you simply couldn't do any better.

The stories are both a lot of fun, I like how Batman is a real detective in these stories, and seems almost a duly-designated member of the the Gotham P.D.


Now with added PDF!

Thanks for posting this I still own this album and don't have a record player to play it on. I can't wait to play it for my kids who are huge Batman fans! I love how this plays up the detective side of The Batman. The artwork in these is top notch done by legends in the industry. The audio is also outstanding and as always a great story. Thanks!

Your surmise was correct, Rob. PR-8167, which includes "Robin Meets Man-Bat", "Catwoman's Revenge", "Gorilla City", and "The Mystery of the Scarecrow Corpse", lists Arthur Korb as the producer. Some of the records Mr. Korb produced were recorded at Fleetwood Recording Studios, Revere, MA. The other Power Records producers who get credited on other releases are Herb Davidson & Charlotte Sanders, who did all the early Marvel book & record sets with all the suicides and boiling vats of Adhesive X, and Cornel Tanassy, who did some of the early Batman stories and who also did the Conan the Barbarian LP - which I personally think is the most elegantly produced record Power Records ever released.

Wow ... there is some way-crazy panel arrangement on these comic pages. Not just because the illustrator is way talented, but probably trying to shoe-horn in all of the story. I owned the album sans book ...

I liked the stories on the original Batman 33LP, but preferred the Batman actor on this album. The original 33 with Joker, Riddler, Catwoman and Scarecrow seemed so much older -- in terms of cast and music -- whereas the album with "Gorilla City" seemed more modern (and still does).
