Now here's a strange one - an album of psychedelic rock tracks based on the trials and tribulations of Peter Parker, aka Spiderman. What sets this collection apart is that comic book master Stan Lee provides sections of dialogue describing Peter's troubled life and journey to superherodom. It's a good bit of fun and most of the songs are listenable but it is the subject matter that is the real drawcard. This record was reissued in 2000 but even that release is hard to find, so here is your chance to get your spidey groove on.

Tracks 17 and 19 (Dr Octopus) by Palumbo, this is John Palumbo, and the band backing him is his band the most excellent CRACK THE SKY. Their first 3 albums are some of the best (nearly unknown) music EVER (the Doc Ock song is a bonus on the remaster of their first album)! Great funky/prog/glam/rock with a sense of humor - criminally under-appreciated. Terence P. Minogue, their producer, is prolly the "Minogue" in the other Spidey album credits. I can't wait to hear this album...THANKS!
