A sense of friendly competition is evident on Battle Stations; when Davis and Griffin lock horns, the result is musical sportsmanship at its finest. And "friendly" is the operative word on this 1960 date - as competitive as Davis and Griffin could be, they had a great deal of respect for one another.
