As my last two posts attest, I’m in a comics mood lately. So with that in mind, here’s a forgotten gem from 1972.
OK, so it’s not really music, more like a musical. Marvel Comics released, or gave permission to release, on the Buddah label, “The Amazing Spider-man: From Beyond the Grave.” A Rockomic! Produced by Barbara Gittler and Stephen Lemberg. Written by Stephen Lemberg, with music and lyrics by Stephen Lemberg, and all tunes performed by The Webspinners.
For someone who is a fan of Old Time Radio adventures, comic books, and musicals this seemed like the perfect melding of all three.
OK, I was 15 at the time. But, listening to it now, it still seems fun. But I’m an affirmed geek. And yes, I still own this album.
So here, for your listening enjoyment is The Amazing Spider-man starring in a rock and roll comic adventure.
Part VI, Conclusion:
Hope you enjoyed this rockomic!
