Remember how last year at San Diego Comic-Con, Mondo released an amazing vinyl soundtrack album for Batman: The Animated Series that was actually shaped like a Batman symbol? Remember how much you --- and by "you," I mean "I" --- wanted that thing, even though you --- same deal --- do not actually own a record player? Well, get ready to want again.
This week DC and Mondo announced that they are following up the B:TAS album with this year's offering, featuring the theme from Superman: The Animated Series on a die-cut disc shaped like Superman's emblem, complete with a screenprinted S on the b-side. I'm going to go ahead and assume that in this case, it stands for Hope They Don't Run Out While I'm Waiting In Line.
The boutique merchandise arm of the celebrated Austin movie theater the Alamo Drafhouse, Mondo's about to level up with its most ambitious music plan yet: a series of vinyl-only releases of Danny Elfman's music from Batman: The Animated Series.
Over the past 20 years, the music of Batman: The Animated Series, composed by a team led by the amazing Shirley Walker, has been praised to the high heavens. There's a good reason for that, too, since it's basically amazing, but one of the side effects is that it's overshadowed the music of Warner Bros Animation's other shows based on the DC Comics supheroes. Now, two of them are finally getting their due in the form of a special edition release from La-La Land Records.
Released this week, the four-disc soundtrack album for the classic 1990s Superman: The Animated Seriesand a two-disc set for contemporary favorite Batman: The Brave and the Bold are now shipping from La-La Land, with selections from the best episodes of each series, comprising hours of audio alongside in-depth liner notes.
