Batman Animated Series Soundtrack FINALLY Available!
So the universe has finally decided to listen to me. It only took it over 10 years, thank you very much universe. A handful of Shirley Walker's amazing scores for the Batman the Animated Series are finally out on CD. The 2 disc limited edition collection features the full score from 11 episodes plus some bonus material. Unfortunately there's no villain theme medley which is really all I'm interested in... but there's more than enough here to get any Batman fan excited. Besides, my dream of having the Joker's theme as my cell phone ring will finally come true! You can purchase the album through La-La Land Records (by the way, one of my personal pet peeves is calling LA "la-la land"... don't do it).
Also, did you guys know Shirley Walker died two years ago? I was heartbroken to find that out when looking up this album... PLUS the f-ing academy didn't give her a mention in the "In Memoriam" section... which is particularly insulting considering she's one of the only female composers working in Hollywood. Ladies, you should write your congressman/woman complaining about this 2 year old slight!
