While working on Vol 2 a number of episodes of the first "65" got the axe and will be featured on Vol 3: Robin's Reckoning Parts 1 and 2, Day of the Samurai and The Clock King to name a few.

Our plan is to have Vol 3 out next year (possibly another 4 disc set). That would be all the music we would release from the first 65. We are also contemplating releasing an empty box when vol 3 comes out so people can put all 3 volumes inside. It would be like $5 (or around there) if people wanted to buy it separately or free with purchase of Vol 3...something like that.

Then we would focus on the "Adventures of Batman and Robin" and "The New Batman Adventures."

Hopefully, Superman TAS, Justice League (TAS and Unlimited) and the two BTAS animated direct to DVD movies (Subzero and Batwoman) will also see the light of day in the next few years.

This is some of the finest music written for television. It's been a joy and honor to bring these out and we hope to continue to mine this incredible slate of superhero music.

We are also looking into stuff like Animaniacs and Tiny Toons. The ealry 90's was truly the 2nd Golden Age of Animation at Warners Bros. We are doing our part to preserve that legacy.

Fantastic to read this!!! Once again....I'm lost for words. Next to all the other music by Shirley Walker and co you mentioned, I absolutely adore the music Bruce Broughton and Richard Stone composed for Tiny Toons and Animaniacs (plus their partners in crime, like for example Don Davis and William Ross). Those definitely are holy grails for me as well. My Cartoon Concerto cd from Broughton is still one of my most priced possesions.

Mr. Gerhard you are the best!

This is utterly fantastic news. Thanks so much, MV! That slate sounds very impressive. I'm super glad that "Feat of Clay," "The Laughing Fish," and "Beware the Gray Ghost" are getting representation. Some of the best stuff in the series there, I think.

For the upcoming Vol. 3, I don't know what's set in stone, but in addition to the recommendation of "The Underdwellers," "P.O.V." had a solid theme and action material, and "The Forgotten" has some unique harmonica-based material. I'd also love the cue for Bruce putting on the disguise and going into the city to look for information--the basic material is there in the Two-Face recap, but it would be great to have the longer original that it was based on.

As for the jazzy Bullock episode, that would be "A Bullet for Bullock," which is from The Adventures of Batman and Robin, and would thus come after Vol. 3.

Very very exciting!

Almost Got'im also has a fantastic jazzy score.

btw....I'm wondering if a release of Batman Beyond is also something La-La Land would be interested in releasing. There's some great music amongst all the rock and techno action music.

A highlight for me was the Inque episode with the cameo of the Walker Batman theme--won't spoil it for those who haven't gotten around to Beyond, but it was a very cool moment.

I'm at a loss for words.

I have a question it doesn't really pertain to the TAS but it is DC/WB and Walker related. Any chance you'll be releasing more music from 90s "The Flash" show? The Flash 2 cd set was one of my most played cds back in 2010. It's still missing some great scores from eps.

What utter nonsense. When items don't sell, they are discounted to clear out inventory. This is and always has been true of any business. If a CD simply isn't selling....

No, honey. Flash 2CD; Fugitive 2CD; Independence Day 2CD, Alien Resurrection 2CD (and much more!): I purchased all four for $30 each, and now they are for sell at $20 each. Didn’t MV say he has “too much respect for his customers”? Very well, then I want my $40 back. NOW!!!!

"Respect"? La-La Land should just shut up.


Interesting....you just signed up yesterday June 30th and you've posted twice. Both times being incredibly rude, hurtful and disgusting toward a label and the two who run it, who I happen to call friends.

You seem to be some upset whinny 16 year old who didn't get what he wanted and is throwing a hissy fit. Please remove yourself from this forum on your own before others have to take other steps.

I wish that Warner would do the same, what with Animaniacs not even being completely released on DVD, and most of those shows not having a Blu-ray release (yet).

I vote Enterprise before Voyager as well.

High 5!

Would love to see Enterprise get a set, some really ballsy music was on that show, particularly the end of Season 3 and Brian Tyler's "Regeneration".

The orchestra is too small-television-size for me.

What the hell does that even mean?

It might shock you to know that there are a quite number of FEATURE FILMS that are scored with a 30 to 35 piece Orhestra or less.

Good example: James Horner's score to TESTAMENT, scored for only 16 players.

It's not how many players you have, it's WHAT YOU WRITE FOR THEM TO PLAY that matters.

In the case of BATMAN-TAS, the composers did amazing work within the confides of of that 30 to 35 player group.

Well, it meant exactly what I said. For me the orchestra is too small too buy those CDs. That`s all. I really enjoy Shirley Walker`s large orchestral "Mask of the Phantasm". I`m simply not interested in buying CDs with very similar music only with a much smaller orchestra. And that`s exactly the point. "Testament" is very different music. Of course there are "intimate" movie scores with a small ensemble. But the Batman TV-cartoon-scores are not deliberetily small but are trying to sound movie-big. But they just don`t have the number of musicians like "Mask of the Phantasm" had for example. I`ve listened to all the samples of LaLaLand`s Batman Volume 1 and I simply know that after buying the CD I never would listen to it again. So why should I buy it. That`s the kind of music that works best with a rather large orchestra. Just IMO. The composers of those scores are very good. I never denied that.

There is a lot of television music with smaller orchestras that I enjoy very much. I would love to have many of the Dallas scores for example because that music doesn`t need such a huge orchestra unlike those superhero scores. But again just IMO.

If people enjoy the new Batman releases I`m happy for them.

Oh, I am so touched. By the way do you respect *so much* your customers when decreasing prices for CDs that other customers paid fully? Oh, you have too much respect for your customers? Really? What a nice hypocrisy.


URI congratulations!

Yep, that it is most interesting title to me aswell as I regard it as one of Zimmer's finest.

Like it or loathe it, it changed modern film scores. I also think it is one of Ridley Scott's best use of scores in a film. Yes Sir Ridley, I'm thinking of Prometheus - where some of the tracks just don't seem appropriate to what is happening on the screen - but not with Black Rain.

There is an awful lot of music that is not on the Black Rain original soundtrack but I do hope they can fit the complete score on 1 CD.

I remember when I had the OST on vinyl, I had to move the arm of the record player to track 2, after a hideous rock track to hear the first track of Zimmer's score on side B. Thank the gods for CDs. Kids today just don't know how good they have it.

Everyone here is DUMBER just for having to be exposed to such a statement.

I won't even got into how hypocritical the statement given what you posted afteward.

Shakes head in total shock..

Sweet Mother.



One question: In terms of raw %, about how much of the available music from the first 65 would be covered by the first 3 vols. of BTAS? I'll be happy with whatever you release, but I can't help but be curious.

Black Rain will be a 2 cd set per MV's post. Sure hope the film version of Zimmer's I'll be Holding On song is included.

I think I tried my point very clear and explained why I won`t buy those CDs. It`s exactly the kind of music (heroic superhero music) that sounds best performed by a large orchestra. That`s my opinion!. Your response indeed proofs that at least some people got dumber after reading my post.
