I have. Technically, it's not a new CD, it's the 25th anniversary re-issue of "Spider-Man: Rock Reflections on a Superhero," complete with the obligatory narration by Stan Lee.
My copy arrived yesterday, and I've been playing it over and over. It is pure, thorough, unapologetic 1970s cheese, but it's almost too much fun. Imagine "Schoolhouse Rock" filtered through "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and you have a pretty clear idea of what this CD is like. It hearkens back to a time when comics were fun to read. Sigh.
Oh, one last thing. The back of the CD shows a bunch of Marvel characters playing on musical instruments: Luke Cage on bass, the Hulk on drums, Captain America on tambourine, Black Panther on electric guitar, and so on. The image of "Conan and the Barbarians on Strings" (Conan playing cello) alone is worth the cost of the CD.

This album would always hold a place for me, because of my childhood. Spider-Man: Rock Reflections of a Superhero from Lifesong Records. It came out in 1975, and in obvious conjunction with Marvel Comics. I quickly purchased it at the local Two Guys Department Store! (Anyone remember that department store? )
The album styles itself a rock opera; think “Hair” or “Godspell” with spandex.
The record will never be considered a great rock album but I loved it when I was young. Listening to it now, it really isn’t that bad, and actually holds up pretty well. The narration is pure Stan Lee and some people would say that the record was worth it, just for Stan’s part!
Make Marvel Mine!
Note: 100 times better than the Spider-Man - Turn off the Dark Musical.

I can't tell you how thrilled I was to see this album re-released on CD. I grew up with this album, which may be dated now, but is still great fun. It's loaded with catchy, sing along songs, and although a few are decidely cheesey, most are an honest attempt to catch the depth and emotion of the character done in the style of the times. Great stuff! J. Blues Rocks!

Stan Lee's narration was surprisingly subdued. But the music is amazingly good considering that most people would believe this to be a project made for children. Several of these songs could have been hits were it not for the comic book references. Several songs remind me of Frank Zappa. Others sound like Three Dog Night,Jack Bruce,Styx,Meat Loaf,Doobie Brothers,Leo Sayer,Cat Stevens,Alice Cooper,Edgar Winter or Rick Wakeman. The doowop tune could have been done by Sha Na Na who were big enough in the 70s to have their own syndicated TV show. Great album for people into great music and Marvel comics. The album was made in 75 but doesn't sound dated.

If you like (early) seventies music *and* Spider-Man, what's not to like? It's no great work of art, but it's good fun and most of the music isn't half-bad.
The CD is presented in a narrative story format by Stan Lee, telling a sort of "day in the life of Spider-Man" tale, with the song tracks filling in the action between the spoken story-telling. The music carries the balance of the CD and the effect comes off pretty well. Most of the songs aren't all that thrilling, but there's a couple catchy ones to hold your interest for the occasional repeated listing. And it's just a cool item to have for your average Spider-Man fan.
'Nuff said!

A truly unique piece of Spider-Man history, Peter Parker's first rock and roll musical adventure, soon to be joined by the broadway musical.

As a child of the 80's raised on "Spider-Man & His Amazing friends", this is not a piece of nostalgia to me (I bought it in a comic store for the first time upon it's re-release), but a window into a decade I'll never know or understand. But it is fascinating nontheless.

While not radio hits by any means, these songs are definitely more sophisticated that the usual Hanna-Barbera cartoon band nonsense.

Ranging from synth-laded prog-rock ("High Wire"), to psychadelic intropection ("Peter Stays and Spider-Man Goes") to 1950's Frankie Valle style ballads ("Gwendolyn") this album shows great range.

While there a few too many "I'm Spider-Man" themed songs, the stand out track is "Peter Stays and Spider-Man Goes" which is really the centerpiece of the album describing Peter's concerns over his dual identity.

Following close behind is the tracks Dr. Octopus parts 1 & 2 which are way out there musically, but really are brought to life by the vocalist who goes on a tirade at the end of part 2 challenging everyone from the Fantastic 4 to the Avengers claiming he will destroy them. Funny stuff!

If nothing more than to satisfy your curiosity, buy it. It's being offered extremely cheap here on Amazon, I paid $25.00 for my copy, but it was well worth it.

Back in the 70's I got this album in the mail from the old Heroes World catalog, and within 6 months, had worn it out. My Mom knew how much I loved this record, she ordered another one for me when she heard how much the first one was skipping and popping. When the second one came in, my Dad copied it onto 8-Track (!) for me using his good equipment. Well here I am 47 years old, and I STILL LOVE THIS RECORD. My wife laughs hysterically when she hears me singing along in my (Bat)man-cave. Like fine aged cheddar, this is some awesome cheese! For fans of Spidey, the 70's, and novelty records. Don't be a SQUARE BOY, walk the HIGH WIRE and get this CD!
