Behold! Secrets of "The Adventures of Spider-Man"

Image Hosted by
For those who adore the backing tracks used in the classic American cartoon series "The Adventures of Spider-Man" from 1967... this album, a completely random find from the land of SoulSeek.
Listen to these compositions by Bob Mersey (who?) played by the Det Moor Orchestra (who? who?) which have classic Library crime-jazz flavor, but which seem to have been commercially released, and immediately recognize some of them from their use in "Spider-Man," such as "Forever Frantic."
Two of these tracks have now been used in SPACE PATROL episodes, but I have never posted an album before and the timing seemed opportune!

Attend ye, your rapidshare!

I've been looking for the music in the 1967 spiderman cartoon since I managed to tape all 3 years on vhs. Could you repost this jazz from great tv shows album? It's really hard to find.....

Hey, I didn't hear mcuh from SPidey, but DID recognize some Bob Mersey cues from Art Clokey's GUMBY! Mainly his "Henry the bear and Rodgy the ticked off Noo Yawk Boid" pilots,suprirsed to recognize those, notably from "Dragon Witch", circa 1961, with Clokey's clay bear and bird trying to catch a Frank Nelson "Yess" soundalike dragon, and "Who's What", the story of "Rodgy, the bird'"s creation.I also recognized those cool jazz-tunes usedin the Gumby "Magoo Granny" Gumby, "Hot Rod Granny". I had seen Mersey's name [which I know more form Columbia records] in a canned music box someone sent me of the old Capitol Stock cues, on a pic, but none of his cues in, in the old Syncro-Fox library. some of those got in "Yogi Bear",'Ruff and Reddy", as well, along with composer Jack Shaindlin's, Roger Roger's, Bill Loose and P.H.Green's cues. I don't acutally recognize any 1960s Spiderman cues, but one stinger I DO remember from it, and from a 1968 "Lung Associaiton" ad, was a eerie assending staccato then rapid steam of electric organ notes and a sharp sting..used in the 1960s anti smoking ad mentioned set on some shipping dock..

That's pretty amazing, Steve - I had no idea about this connection!

All the Synchro-Fox in my file shares, as well as Valentino/Major for example, is from significantly later.

It's me, Steve agian

Bob Mersey was the composer and conductor for many Andy Williams's
classic records of early 60s.

Really? Andy Williams, who has now now declined to an Obama birther nut?

Man, I never would have found that out. Thank you!
