Stop in, look around, have a drink and crank some tunes. I'll be posting some songs ripped from records, some out of print and hard to find stuff, some songs by artists you should be listening to, and a few mixes here and there.

Riddle Me This - Part Two

Wow! My first request. Here are both sides of Frank Gorshin's The Riddler 45. Side A is The Riddler and Side B is Never Let Here Go.

Frank Gorshin was always my favorite villain from Batman. In 1966 he cut a single called The Riddler. Talk about over-the-top! I picked this up on eBay for $1. Give it a listen. The song was written by Mel Torme.

Who wrote NEVER LET HER GO?

Believe it or not, David Gates (of Bread) wrote "NEVER LET HER GO" (long before Bread became popular.)
Gates released it as a single in 1975, but it didn't chart well.

Here's another shocker: The Gomer Pyle album on this same blog: David Gates wrote most of the tunes and also arranged and produced it.

Now you know!

I second Gorshin's Riddler as a favorite. He was also a great guest for the Johnny Carson show.

Thanks...

I liked Romero better, but Gorshin was a close second.....anyhow, THANK YOU for this rare oddity.

Can't wait to play it for my friends next time we watch the Adam West Batman movie.

Long days and pleasant nights.

I REALLY dig your site. I also loved Gorshin. Had my own encounters with him while he was doing his one man Broadway show. Here's some pics and details if you're interested. Supervisor194.com/blog

p.s. I have a Larry Hovis album he made before Hogan's Heroes you might be interested in featuring.
