Out Of Limits

Michael Z. Gordon formed the Marketts in 1961 and went into the studio in 1964 with an idea for a song based on the "Twilight Zone" theme. The Marketts recorded their first national hit song, "Out Of Limits", which went to #1 in the country in Cash Box magazine (don’t ask me where I found it please) and earned him his first BMI award for instrumental of the year. The Marketts had one more chart record, the well-known "Batman Theme" from the movie and appeared in several motion pictures and television shows.

Just thought you'd like to know that you posted the wrong photo of the Marketts. The photo you posted was a "wannabe" group that went out as the Mar-kets in early months after Surfer's Stomp was released. If you would like an actual photo of the Marketts, you can either go to:


Or you can email me for pics at

Keep up the good work!
