Make horrid scars and gashes.


The Amazing Spider-Man & The Electric Company "Spidey Super Stories" (Peter Pan 8189, 1977)

Despite the dumbed down stories, having Spider-Man pop up on the Electric Company seemed pretty damn cool to me as a kid. I'm fairly sure this was the first flesh & blood guy I ever saw playing him (they began in 1974), and that alone was a big enough deal that even giant rope webbing or played-for-yuks villains couldn't mitigate the thrill. Oh, plus I thought that the theme (included before each story here) was pretty sweet, but I guess in retrospect all the Spider-Man songs sounded badass to me at the time. Actually I don't think he ever really spoke out loud on the show (instead they'd flash cartoon type word balloons), but on an audio record I suppose it couldn't be avoided. Mr. Morgan Freeman introduces all the episodes, naturally.

Great Blog! I just got tipped to it by BubblegumFink.

It looks like you and I have similar tastes in weird records. I will be downloading all of it.

Do you have "Spiderman: Rock Reflections of a Super-Hero"?

Somewhere I have a cassette tape I recorded of that, but it's very worn.

I'm going to put you in my favorites and give you a link at my blog

Ah, excellent Ben T! I love your blog & have added it -- some really cool stuff there.

I don't have Rock Reflections anymore, but the cd is easily gettable.

By the way, I can't wait 'til you start posting more of the stuff from your cover archive.

I have this record as well as Batman, Superman, and others. Any idea how much it might be worth?
