Here is a Sneak Peak at my pal Jack Davis' art for the group art show December 6th at CREATURE FEATURES in Burbank, CA. This is Jack's tribute to his friend Arthur Rankin, Jr.. Arthur and I shared a love for Jack's work and spoke about it many, many times. What a great guy at 90 years young!

The article about Rankin/Bass' Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer's 50th Anniversary written by Frank DeCaro, that I was interviewed for, is out on news stands now. I haven't seen it yet BUT will try to pick one up tonight. A friend read some of it to me over the phone.

Love that the original, complete album cover is back with the latest CD re-issue of Nelson Riddle's Batman TV Soundtrack album. It is also out on vinyl. For years, the cover was cropped and blocked. The only thing that would have made this a better release, is the inclusion of 'Nelson's Riddler' 45 B-side, as a bonus track. It would have made the short album longer and it is a great instrumental! I have it on CD from my friend Gary Matheson, so not that big of a deal :)

I own the original transparency and lent it to Golden Books for the good dvd that came out in 1999 and remained out for a few years with the Rankin/Bass name on the front cover. Check it!
