      I think I know the one you mean-- it's the one heard in the cartoon
      before Spidey goes down the hole; also heard when he goes UP to attack
      the Sky-Master's zeppelin. That track (which I took to calling "Hang
      Onto Your Hats") has not turned up yet.

      This isn't making any sense. Several new people here have gotten to me
      by e-mail lately, why aren't yours getting thru? What's going on?

      Maybe it's a stupid question... what e-mail address are you writing to
      me at? For that matter, did YOU get the e-mail I sent you directly a
      little while back?

        Hey Henry, that's too bad that track (Hang onto your Hats) hasn't
        popped up yet.

        I've always emailed you at the same address (profh@...).
        And I've replied to all your emails, so I don't know why you haven't
        received them. I believe everything you've sent me, I've
        received...it appears to be just your incoming email that gets blocked.

        Best, Sean.

          In theory, one could carefully edit the section of the MOXXI track and
          insert it in between "Heading For The Bank" and "Down the Hole".
          (Bill Martin said to me, "You can't just change song titles like
          that!" But I've listened to this stuff for decades before I found out
          what the "real" titles were, so to me, the "Spidey" titles make more
          sense! heehee) Or, you could fit it in between "Artificial Clouds" and
          "Out Of Control", which is where it actually appeared on the show
          first! It was that scene, once I realized late in the game, the song
          appeared in, that i came up with the name "Hang Onto Your Hats" for.
          The "Menace..." episode, where I noticed it early in my indexing, I'd
          been calling it "Better Go Take A Look". I think the other name is
          more dramatic.

          :)


          When assembling the comp back in 2002 (and then the expanded version
          in 2004), I tried to order the songs according to where they first
          appeared. ("Spider-Man Instro", track 3, is obviously an exception, as
          that came from the previous season!) I hope someone noticed when I put
          "Dr. Cool & Garth" right after "Ultra Sensory Perception", it was
          partlyu due to the fact that in the "REVOLT..." episode, that song
          ("Veiled Threat A") appeared near the end when Infinata is about to
          kill Spidey. Come to think of it, "Stop Look And Listen"/"The Source
          of the Scarf" also appears over the opening sequence of one of those
          "Rocket Robin Hood" redos-- but just this moment, I forget which one!



          Most of the titles on the VOLUME tracks don't really match anything on
          the show (except maybe for "Dimentia 5") as far as music and scenes
          they appear on... but it would be too confusing right now for me to
          come up with "alternate" titles for those as well... wouldn't it?

          Right now I'm just thrilled to have all that cool Ray Ellis music--
          even if most of it are cover versions. I think the 2 CDs together form
          a nice set.



          And if anybody else wants to trade CDs... go ahead! I can always
          e-mail the art to anyone who needs it. (5 BIG images-- in theory-- at
          the exact size to print out to fit into cd jewel cases)

            I'm another new member, although I've known about the group for several
            months. A few months ago, I mentioned the TV show's music on a
            couple of sites, filmscoremonthly.com & marvelmasterworks.com. Since
            then, I got Henry's CD comp back in June. I urge anyone who hasn't got
            it yet, to contact Henry. It is awesome!

              Thanks, Richard, glad you liked it so much.

              Just checked my records... now what you NEED is to get a coipy of the
              new SPIDEY COVERS disc. Apparently, I got ahold of it from Kevin
              Artinian 2 DAYS after I mailed the SPIDER-MAN 1968 disc to you. Ever
              since, I've been trading copies of BOTH discs. They really make a nice
              set, the one being KPM tracks from the 2nd & 3rd seasons, the other
              being instrumental covers of the still-missing Ray Ellis tracks from
              the 1st season.



              Of course, there's also the CLASSIC SPIDER-MAN BACKGROUND MUSIC disc
              put together by Stephane Dubuc, straight off the videotapes (with lots
              of technical problems & such). I've copied that for a few people,
              despite the quality problem it's still a fun disc and has a number of
              tracks not on the other 2.

              One of these days, when I'm all set up for it, I'd like to put
              together a comp like that myself, done straight off the DVDs, to take
              care of any music that's still among the missing. But that's a long
              way off...



              You can probably get these from other members in the group, or from
              me. In either case, I can always e-mail the art!

                Hi again Henry,

                I finally joined the group, like you suggested.  However, I don't
                know if I'll have much to contribute.  I suppose I'll mostly be
                asking questions!

                As for the covers CD...well, I already have the Volume CD, and I only
                dug a few of those tracks (Volume's version of those tracks, that
                is).  Too industrial for my tastes.  I'm interested in more faithful
                versions.  Perhaps if enough of us badger, er, suggest to some music
                recording companies, such as Tribute Film Classics
                http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?
                fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=191776318 , or Tadlow Music
                http://www.pragueorchestras.com/ , or Intrada Excalibur Collection
                http://store.intrada.com/s.nl/sc.7/category.2004/.f , etc, etc, we
                just might get an awesomely faithful re-recording of the Ellis material (in lieu of the
                actual tracks, that is).

                I will patiently await your DVD rips!  Or perhaps someone else
                already has done their own ripping?  I have the DVDs, but I have no
                knowledge/skill in ripping.

                BTW, I was intrigued by your comments on the first few episodes of
                season 2 paralleling the first few comic issues.  Now, would you
                happen to know all of the episodes that partially adapt stories from
                the comics?  Off the top of my head, there's the origin; the Kingpin
                one; and the prison escape one.  Any others?  Maybe one of the Doc
                Ock ones?

                Richard G.

                  Well, there's 19 tracks on the SPIDEY COVERS disc, and only the first
                  9 are by Volume. I'd wanted to put together a comp of the various
                  bands doing this, when Kevin Artinian got in touch with me asking
                  about the Mole City track. He didn't actually want their whole album
                  just the one track... so I kinda threw my hands up and E-MAILED it to
                  him. Took over an hour to send, it's a whopper. I also send him a
                  link to the Moxxi tracks. Next thing I know, he beat me to the puncn
                  and put the comp together himself and mailed me a copy. That's what
                  I've been copying ever since as the "2nd" disc.




                  "Perhaps if enough of us badger, er, suggest to some music recording

                  Great idea! You heard him, guys-- go to it!

                  :)




                  "I will patiently await your DVD rips!"

                  Me too. Right now, I don't even have a DVD player! One of these
                  days... Two track on my comp, the theme song and the one I named
                  "Spider-Man Instro" both came from the DVD.




                  "BTW, I was intrigued by your comments on the first few episodes of

                  Ock ones?"

                  Two Dock ock stories were VERY loosely adapted-- "Enter: Dr. Octopus"
                  from ASM #53 became "THE TERRIBLE TRIUMPH OF DR. OCTOPUS" (near the
                  end of the 1st year), and his debut story served as the inspiration--
                  SORT OF!!!-- for "SWING CITY" (in the 2nd year). That one, I saw
                  dozens of times and it never occured to me until I re-read the comic
                  and realized the whole bit about the insane radiation specialist
                  taking over the experimental nuclear reactor. But they replaced Ock
                  with the guy who looked like Rotwang from Fritz Lang's METROPOLIS!


                  Too late to tonight for more... check back far enough, I did very
                  detailed reviews of all 52 episodes.
