Power Records "The Amazing Spider-Man Vol II" (PR-8144, 1974)

Here's the second Power Records Spider-Man long player, with a different guy voicing him & maybe what, three other actors playing the rest of the entire cast on every story? These days it kinda sounds to me like this whole album was cut in a day, but as a kid I never minded at all. Here's a testament to how often I must've played this thing; it's been 32 years and I still frequently quote several of the astronomy scene lines from "The Invasion of the Dragon-Men" in my head when I'm noticing the stars at night ("Looks like the letter 'W'!", "Couldja pour me a Coke outta that dipper?"). Any way you spin it that's probably pretty lame.

The Invasion Of The Dragon-Men
Return Of The Conquistador
The Mad Hatter Of Manhattan
The Abominable Showman

Man Or Astro-Man used a bit of the Attack of the Dragon Men on one of their songs. It's on "Is It...Man or Astro-man?" - Invasion of the Dragonmen. This is the only Power Record I had as a kid. The only one I have now is one of the Planet of the Apes ones. Great stuff.

Not only did I have this and the other Spidey record as a kid, I still do have them, along with a big whack of other superhero and Star Trek records. But very few of them are listenable anymore--you're doing your fans, nay, the world, a great service.

Incidentally, Man...or Astroman? also used a sample from the Batman story "Stacked Cards (Trumping The Joker)" in their song "Joker's Wild."
