The first part of the CD is a live performance from the TAMI show. Jan & Dean sing all their hits, with a few surprise renditions of such songs as "Louie Louie," "All I Have To Do Is Dream," "Do Wah Diddy Diddy," and "I Should Have Known Better." Very good quality. You can even hear the girls in the audience sing along. The second part of the CD features an album I've been searching for ever since CD's were being made: "Jan & Dean Meet Batman." When I was little, one of my cousins gave me the original record, and it's been one of my all-time favorites. As a comic book and super hero fan, it was a very rare treat to see a rock and roll parody of Batman & Robin. Jan & Dean perform songs based on the D.C. comics characters, and in between, they present a series of adventures starring the team of "Captain Jan & Dean, the Boy Blunder." In the stories, Jan & Dean display their sense of humor with some hilarious take-offs of the Batman TV series. Dean's voice of the Boy Blunder sounds just like Burt Ward! The singing duo transform into the "Titanic Twosome" when they sing the opening line of "The Little Old Lady From Pasadena." If you thought the TV show was campy, wait until you hear these little mini-dramas. The songs include: Jan & Dean singing the "Batman Theme"; "Batman," which features lyrics like "Criminals are a superstitious cowardly lot," taken right from the comics stories; "Robin the Boy Wonder," a very humorous ditty with lyrics like "Holy porcupine quills," and then Robin's voice saying "Holy rodent!"; "Mr.Read more ›

With so many artists, their live performances are not nearly as good as their studio albums, but that's not the case with Jan and Dean. Some cuts such as "Little Old Lady" & "Sidewalk Surfin'" take on a new life in the live setting. Their versions of other hit songs are endlessly fascinating. They prove what great harmony means on "All I Have To Do Is Dream", the old Everly Brother's tune. The only tune that really doesn't work is the take on "Dead Man's Curve". The bonus cut of "Freeway Flyer" is funny & side-splitting.
As for the other half of the CD-Jan & Dean meet Batman-well, it's an interesting artifact of two crazes meeting one another-superhero meets surfer dudes! You might listen to it a time or two, but it's not going to find a slot in the "frequently played" section on your CD player.
At this price, you can certainly afford it for just the "Live" part of it.
