    This from LLL’s Facebook update:

    “A Piece of Film Music History”

    That’s something I wrote a few months back while I was finishing up our 4 disc set for BTAS Vol 2. While sifting through Shirley’s personal collection of music we came across something marked “Danny’s Batman Theme”. At first I thought it was going to be a demo for the BTAS theme, then I listened to it. Clocking in at 2 minutes and change was a piano demo for the theme from Danny Elfman’s 1989 score…filled with some mistakes and not quite complete. I just about wet my pants. The score that got me to fall in love with film music — here in my hands — is the initial demo cut for the producer’s to listen to.. .to say Yeah or Nay on the composer and his now iconic theme. It’s the score that launched Elfman’s career into the stratosphere and help establish that comic book sound for years to come.

    I know some of you out there, you Grumpy Gus’, will poo-poo all over this discovery and my proclaimation, but I don’t care. This IS a part of film music history and I am very happy to share it with those who will appreciate it as much as I did. For those of you who picked up the BTAS Vol 2 set — it’s an easter egg on disc 1 at the end.
