Bat-Music #13 - Tom Hazleton And Gene Ciszek - Mr. Bach Meets Batman

"Explorer - A Totally New Electronic Instrument in Musical Recording" was a demonstration record designed to show off "The Explorer" a musical instrument from Rocky Mount Instruments that seemed to be a hybrid between a traditional electric organ and a Mellotron.  This record first came to my attention thanks to WFMU's 365 Days Project.  The record is filled with a none-too-exciting collection of instrumental standards and melodies, with one exception; "Mr. Bach Meets Batman," which mashes up Neil Hefti's "Batman Theme" with Johann Sebastian Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" to spectacular effect.
