Stop in, look around, have a drink and crank some tunes. I'll be posting some songs ripped from records, some out of print and hard to find stuff, some songs by artists you should be listening to, and a few mixes here and there.

Mighty Marvel Marching Society

















































I love the classic Marvel look and stories. Here is a song from a floppy record that was given out to members of the Mighty Marvel Marching Society, the Marvel Comics fan club in the 60's. I'm a little confused about the exact name of the song. The envelope says Scream Along With Marvel, but the record says March-A-Long With Marvel. I guess I'll call it the March-A-Long... Check out the awesome artwork on this. I've slowly been collecting things from the MMM's when I find them. Good stuff. Sorry, I don't know who the singers are.

THE MARVEL SUPERHEROES HAVE ARRIVED


MARCH-A-LONG WITH MARVEL

Wow. I not only have this strange little item, but I also have---2 No-Prizes! Basically they are empty envelopes lettered all over in that mid-60's Marvel Style....

Thanks so much for posting this. There is a great Justice League song album that sounds much like this.

I still have this record, though it got a fold in it from years of wear (it makes an interesting bumping noise when played). You can't say you have this problem about too many records. When I joined the MMMS, I used an older coupon that had a cheaper price... they sent me MOST of the membership kit! I got what I deserved... but it did come with the record. That and the "Make Mine Marvel" button I still have! - hcc

Here's a question I'd love to know the answer to - was this used as the theme to the old, barely animated Marvel Super Hero cartoons in the 60s?

I've never seen a fully packaged episode - on the segments for each hero (Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Sub Mariner - I think that's all...)

Does it really say "the exotic AND EROTIC aquatic superhero, or have I finally lost it?

The proper name for these type of records is a Soundsheet or Evatone Soundsheet. I've written a history of them in issue #3 of my zine Generation Exploitation. The McDonald's and Mr. Bill soundsheets are pretty dope too!
