Robin and the Batmen: Batskinner/Louie Louie (Sara J-6614)

Here we have a little novelty item by an unknown group that sounds like any local club group circa 1965 would have sounded like. That becomes clear in the "Louie, Louie" cover which dons the b-side, which is pretty average as these things go, except it's played a bit faster. The gem here is "Batskinner," which takes "Muleskinner Blues" and transforms it into an ode to everyone's favorite caped crusader and boy wonder. This inspired oddity got further coverage on one of the "Big Itch" comps (not sure which one) and that's all I know about it.
