Batman and Robin

What?? Sun Ra and Blues Project on a children's record? How did THAT happen?

In 1966, a toy company in Newark, New Jersey released a children's record called Batman and Robin to cash in on the popular Adam West TV series of the same name. The music on the LP was credited to "The Sensational Guitars of Dan and Dale", but in fact the band was 
one of the greatest uncredited session combos of all time, including the core of Sun Ra's Arkestra and Al Kooper's Blues Project. To keep the music licensing fees to a minimum, all the tracks were based on public domain items like Chopin's Polonaise Op. 53, the horn theme from 
Tchaikovsky's First symphony and the love theme from Romeo and Juliet, and generic rock riffs. It's all instrumental, with the exception of "Robin's Theme" featuring an uncredited vocalist. Musicians credited on this version of the album are Sun Ra, John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, Pat Patrick, Andy Kulberg, Roy Blumenfeld, Danny Kalb, Steve Ketz, Al Kooper. 
Tracks are; 
Batman Theme
Batman's Batmarang
Batman and Robin Over the Roofs
The Penguin Chase
Flight of the Batman
Joker is WIld
Robin's Theme
