BGP proudly launch a new outlet - the BGP SOUND LIBRARY, which will be the home for a whole slew of funky themes and other inspired library style recordings from our vaults.
The first release is a very rare Maxwell Davis recording from 1966 which was released for a very short period on the UK Ember label (as well as on a USA Crown LP) in the wake of the Batman craze of 1966, when the famous pop art TV series was at the peak of its popularity.
Our release gathers the ten tracks from that album all in a style that suggests groovy go-go dancers going wild at an all-night happening in the Batcave plus three related recordings by Maxwell Davis from the period.
Davis was one of the true greats of the post-war R&B era. He produced over 100 US R&B hits and was a constant figure from the mid 40s to the late 60s recording with many of the true West Coast legends such as B.B. King, Louis Jordan and Lowell Fulsom.
The CD comes in the usual Ace Records high quality artwork with an in-depth sleeve note on Maxwell Davis.
